‘You’re More Confident, You Know Yourself More:’ Michelle Obama Talks The Benefits Of Turning 50 And Valentine’s Day Plans

January 31, 2014  |  

A few weeks ago Michelle Obama celebrated her 50th birthday with a series of fun-filled activities. During a recent interview with E! the stunning mom of two opened up about life at 50, her fitness routine and what she and the POTUS have planned for Valentine’s Day. Check out her interview highlights below.

On turning 50:

“You’re more confident, you know yourself more, you’re not concerned about what other people think. And if you’ve taken care of your health, many times you can be in the best shape you’ve been in…You watch your kids grow up and I know, my girls, they’re starting to become real people with opinions and it’s just so much fun to talk to them now.”

On her workout routine:

“Barack and I work out together every single morning. I get up in the morning, usually either right before the kids go to school or right after, and I do about an hour and a half workout. I try to do 45 minutes of cardio and then whatever I’m doing that day.”

On their Valentine’s Day plans:

“This year, again, I’ve had this big birthday celebration—my husband really celebrated me so well—he did a great job. I had a great couple of weeks, so I think we’re going to low-key it for Valentine’s Day. We have been married for 21 years and he never forgets a Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, a birthday. He’s really good at that kind of stuff.”

On what she thinks of ‘Scandal:’

“I hadn’t watched it until this past vacation and we went to Hawaii…so [we] had a long flight [and] I watched all the seasons,” she shared. “I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

Gold star for Barack ! He’s the President of the United States and still never manages to miss important dates in his relationship? Kudos to him!
