They grow up so fast.
These days, everyone’s photos are on social media. But not everyone’s prom photo night photos end up making the day’s headlines.
Photos resurfaced on Twitter Saturday of Sasha Obama, the youngest daughter of America’s most eligible adoptive parents Michelle and Barack, attended her high school prom on Friday, looking as stylish as only the progeny of our former FLOTUS could.
Sasha, who will be turning 18 in June was captured posing for prom night photos along with her older sister Malia, 20 and their mother Michelle Obama and her prom date- identified only as Christopher on May 24.
Sasha is also rumored to be off to the Unversity of Michigan after next month’s graduation popped up in a classic black dress to the Sidwell Friends prom, while Chris Milton, her date matched Sasha’s fly in a classic black tux and the quiet confidence of a man taking the president’s daughter to prom.
While the former family has not posted any photos in their official social media accounts, one account on twitter posted a couple of them including Sasha with her apparent date, with her mother and assumedly his family.
The account owner captioned the picture: “When your lil cousin take Sasha Obama to prom.”
The post immediately went viral reaping over 60,000 likes and over 11,000 retweets in 14 hours. Sasha is seen in the photos with a broad smile as she stands alongside her date in the floor-length, shoulder-baring dress.
The reaction on Twitter was largely positive with most commenters loving the former president’s prom look.
In 2018, Michelle Obama told Ellen Degeneres that the family was still living in Washington D.C., so that Sasha, then a junior, could finish high school in the same school she’s been since second grade.
In her 2018 memoir, Becoming how, Michelle Obama recounted how for the first daughter’s prom date in 2015, the president and first lady made an exception to let Malia travel in a limousine without secret service protection in the car with her date.
We are sure the pair enjoyed a great evening with friends, making one of their final memories as high school students.
