PHOTOSMalia Obama and Sasha Obama Have Grown up So Much Since Their Father Barack Obama First Took Office!

We’ve watched Barack Obama’s daughters, Malia Obama and Sasha Obama, grow from little girls into beautiful women throughout their father’s Presidential run — and now, four months after Donald Trump took his place, we’re looking back at the sisters through the years!

When their dad first began campaigning before taking office in 2008, Malia was nine years old and Sasha was just six years old. Today, the girls are already 18 and 15, respectively.

Before leaving the White House, Barack, 55, opened up about his girls — and admitted he’s surprised how fast they’ve grown up. “They’re ready to get out of the nest. We don’t think they’re ready, but they certainly think they’re ready,” he told People at the time. “The fact that their parents’ house is the White House may add to it. But Malia’s going off to college. She’s a grown woman.” Aww, Malia and Sasha are clearly daddy’s girls, too!
