It’s a part of Michelle Obama that we’ve never seen before, but the former first lady has decided to share some of her private stories with the rest of the world as we await her highly anticipated book, Becoming.
In an excerpt from an exclusive interview with ABC News anchor Robin Roberts, Obama speaks candidly about going through a miscarriage 20 years ago, and how she ended up conceiving our favorite first daughters, Malia and Sasha, through IVF.
“I felt lost and alone and I felt like I failed, because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” Obama, 54, said. “We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
“So, that’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen, and the biological clock is real,” she added. “I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work, and how they don’t work.”
But Michelle isn’t only dropping truths about her personal life in the books, she’s apparently also sharing her intimate feelings, and answering the questions some have long wondered. How does she really feel about President Donald Trump?
As we all predicted, she isn’t really here for him. It turns out Obama harbored feelings of disdain ever since Trump’s birther conspiracies about her husband, which she felt put her family at risk. That, to Obama, is unforgivable.
Becoming, the book drops on Tuesday (there’s still time to pre-order), but if you’re looking for more spoilers, details ahead of the release, Robin Roberts’ full interview with Obama will be airing Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
