In her memoir, titled


(2018), the former first lady recounted her meeting with her future husband.

Both worked at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago, where she had been appointed as a mentor to Barack Obama, three years her senior.

Initially absorbed by her career as a lawyer, she had not paid attention to his advances.

Then, one summer night, his subtle insistence had made him change his mind.

"When we stopped to eat ice cream, he felt that I was starting to be receptive," she confided to the microphone of "Good Morning America" ​​in November 2018. He played it gently.

He just leaned in to kiss me.

And that was it.

You know, from that kiss... It was crazy love.

And he became my man.

He also became the father of his two daughters, Malia, 24, and Sasha, 21.
