Former US First Lady Michelle Obama said she is “moving towards retirement right now”

On reasons for her retirement, Mrs Obama said she and her husband were building up their foundation so that they can retire and be with each other.

She also stated that she is selective with the projects she is taking on, People magazine reports.

The couple have maintained their political life as both played vital roles when President Joe Biden was campaigning for president.

Meanwhile, people have not stopped spreading the same speculation around her political life; most of them said Mrs Obama would herself run for office.

Beyond politics, the activities around the family of Mrs Obama’s family are what people have also been reacting to.

This can be seen in the family’s experience that she shared during the pandemic – including that of their daughters, 19 and 22, moving home from university.

She said, “Our girls were supposed to have emptied out of my nest,”

“I was sort of celebrating that they were out building their lives and allowing me the emotional space to let them go. Well, they’re back!

“This time has allowed us to get some stolen moments back with our girls,” she added, before revealing she had taken up swimming and taught herself to knit to pass time.”
