First lady 'too young' : Michelle Obama Has the Perfect Response When Little Girl Asks Her Age

“You’re too young for 51,” a little girl visiting the White House Wednesday told First Lady Michelle Obama, after asking her how old she was.

While answering questions from children at a White House observance of Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day, the microphone was passed to one little girl named Anaya Brodie who sweetly asked, “How old are you?” The First Lady politely answered, “I’m 51.”

Though not caught on camera, it was clear Michelle’s response perplexed the girl, causing her to make a confused expression.

“What’s that look?” she asked. The amateur interviewer responded with a comment that put a smile on Michelle’s face, but was inaudible to the audience so she asked the youngster to repeat herself. “You’re too young for 51,” repeated the girl after being handed a microphone.

Looking youthful in a floral printed dress, the flattered mom of two thanked the girl and even invited her onstage for a hug.

The special event was held for children of Executive Office employees, local young people from the Boys and Girls Club and D.C. Child and Family Services.
