If you’re the current President of the United States, you might want to stop reading right now – because First Lady Michelle Obama spilled the beans on what you’re getting for Christmas.
The leader of the free world will get some exercise gear under the Christmas tree this year, a disclosure made by the first lady during her annual holiday visit to the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
“Don’t put this in the papers, because he’s going to read this tomorrow. I might get him some workout clothes,” she said to laughter from the crowd of patients and parents, adding that he “said that’s what he wanted.”
“I’m not forcing my husband to work out,” she joked.
She also revealed that first dogs Bo and Sunny–who joined her for the outing, snuggling at her feet and next to her on the couch –will be getting chew toys.
First daughters Sasha and Malia didn’t ask Santa for much, Obama said.
“Malia wanted a cell phone but then her father got it for her, and I was like ‘You messed it up! It should have been a Christmas gift,’” she said.
The first lady also dished on her favorite Christmas treats (pumpkin pie), and Christmas movies (“A Christmas Story,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”)
And while she’s excited about the holidays, the first lady has another big day of her own to celebrate – her 50th birthday.
“I’m going to be 50,” she said. “Fifty and fabulous January 17, and I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do, but it might involve some dancing.”
Perhaps more “mom-dancing”? We will have to wait and see.
