Sasha Obama was just 8 years old when President Obama took office in 2009 but now, the former First Daughter is all grown up.
On June 10th, Sasha turned 16 years old and photos from her Sweet 16 party emerged on Twitter and Instagram. According to the YBF, the birthday party actually took place sometime in May, but photos didn’t surface online until this weekend.
Sasha looked stunning in a red silk dress and dainty gold layered necklaces for the special occasion. Photos of the teen posing with Barack and Michelle Obama along with her friends made their rounds on Twitter, with the internet collectively freaking out at how much the former First Daughter has grown up.
