What's more, her daughter Sasha Obama has a pretty incredible living situation. The 20-year-old has her own suite in the house, including her very own living room.

Michelle opened up about her daughter's room during an interview on Ellen in 2018, telling host Ellen DeGeneres: "Sasha actually killed in this house. She has a two-room suite, it's all decked out. She has like a living room area and a bedroom."

Sasha even designed it herself. While Sasha has the best deal in the room department, her dad Barack Obama didn't get quite so lucky. "He's got the smallest room for his office. So he's really hating on her," Michelle joked.

Malia, meanwhile, has a "room in the attic somewhere," because prior to the lockdown she was away at university. "She's away at college. You don't waste rooms on college kids," she joked.

EXPLAINED: Why Malia and Sasha Obama are rarely seen in public

"Sometimes we’re outside if the weather permits, but we’ve developed this routine, you know, we don’t really worry about seeing one another in the day."

But then, "right around five o’clock, everybody comes out of their nooks," and it’s time for puzzles and cards.
