Mom-in-chief First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for an intimate chat with EBONY’s editor-in-chief Amy DuBois Barnett for the publication’s May “Mother’s Day” issue.

In the cover story shot by Marc Baptiste at the White House, the FLOTUS shows off her fabulously fit physique in a beautiful royal blue (arguably her favorite color) dress by Tracy Reese.

The First Lady talks about how she celebrates Mother’s Day (mac-and-cheese is often involved), staying fit (despite the occasional serving of mac-and-cheese) and juggling motherhood, wife-hood and her First Lady duties.

Not only has Michelle done a fabulous job raising her two girls Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, in front of the nation–she has also taken on the task of improving the lives of children throughout the country with her “Let’s Move” campaign to fight childhood obesity.

With so much going on, it helps that the White House is filled with three generations of Robinson/Obama women to keep things in order. Marian Robinson, Michelle’s mom, who lives with the family is always within arms reach–perfect for a hug and a helping hand.

“Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there,” Michelle told EBONY. The First Lady and President also count on grandma to be there to pickup the girls from school, go to sporting events or take them to birthday parties when their schedules won’t allow those everyday activities.
