Barack Obama has shown the world that he’s a family man… a man who’s a husband and a father raising two daughters.
So last night while celebrating the Obama’s were celebrating their last July 4th as the nation’s first family, it came to no surprise that after he gave his last 4th speech to the in the East Room, he went into daddy mode.

Obama ended his speech when he said, “And just because it’s a job of a father to embarrass his daughters, I’ve got one last job. It’s just so happens that we celebrate our country’s birthday on the same day that we celebrate my oldest daughter’s birthday.”
That’s when the President decided to sing “Happy Birthday to Malia and it didn’t matter that he was off key and out of tune either, he was giving his baby a song!
So, while the audience joined in and before the song was over, Malia joined her father on stage and gave him a hug.
After the birthday serenade was done with, maybe 20 minutes later, the artist Monáe sang the Jackson 5’s rendition of “I Want You Back” to the president.
At the end of the song, she said, “We want you back, Mr. President! We don’t want you to leave.”
