Nearing a milestone birthday, Michelle Obama exuberantly describes herself as “50 and fabulous.”
The U.S. first lady hits the half-century mark on Friday and, by her own account, she feels more relaxed now that President Barack Obama’s days as a candidate are over.
“It gives me a little more room to breathe,” she told an interviewer.
Nearly five years after assuming the first lady’s role following a bruising campaign in which she sometimes became a target, Mrs. Obama is showing increased comfort amid many responsibilities and outsized expectations.
“I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman,” she told Parade magazine when asked about the birthday. On Saturday, she’ll be toasted at a White House party where guests have been advised to come ready to dance.
