Malia Obama begged her parents to be cool in front of prom date
- In her new memoir, "Becoming," Michelle Obama detailed the night Malia Obama went to prom.

- Michelle Obama said she took comfort in the fact that Secret Service would be tailing Malia Obama and her date all night.
BarackandMichelle Obamaweren't just president and first lady, they were also extremely unchill parents — well, at least to a teenageMalia Obama. Michelle recalled in her new memoir, "Becoming," the time that a poor, brave boy asked Malia to prom, and she begged and pleaded with her parents to just "be cool" about it. And thankfully, they delivered. Malia, then 16, told her parents in the spring of 2015 that she had been invited to prom "by a boy she kind of liked," Michelle, 54, writes in her memoir. While Secret Service did not permit Malia and her younger sister, Sasha Obama, to ride in cars without their presence, she and Barack made an "exception" for the special night.
"On the appointed evening, her date arrived in his car," the former FLOTUS writes, in an excerpt from the book obtained by PEOPLE, "clearing security at the southeast gate of the White House, following the path up and around the South Lawn by which heads of state and other visiting dignitaries normally arrived, and then gamely — bravely — walking into the Dip Room dressed in a black suit." The guts of that kid, what a keeper! Like any teenager, Malia was so nervous when she went downstairs to meet him. But unlike other teens, she had the added pressure of her parents being the president and first lady.
"Her embarrassment [had] already [begun] to smolder as we rode the elevator downstairs," Michelle said. "I was barefoot, and Barack was in flip-flops. Malia wore a long black skirt and an elegant bare-shouldered top. She looked beautiful and about twenty-three years old." That's such a mom thing to say. Also, the mental image of Barack Obama chilling in the White House in flip-flops is just golden. Though she says Malia, now 20, "still laughs" about prom and remembers the incident as "a bit excruciating," she concedes that her mom and dad managed to find their chill.
Michelle added that she and her husband were mostly relaxed because they knew Malia had the Secret Service tailing her all night. One wrong move, and that boy would regret it! "Barack and I shook the young man's hand, snapped a few pictures, and gave our daughter a hug before sending them on their way," she writes.
