Michelle Obama and Barack Obama are celebrating being empty nesters! The former FLOTUS and POTUS officially have no (human) children in the house – as their daughters Sasha and Malia are both away at college. Sasha, 18, has enrolled at the University of Michigan, and her 21-year-old sister Malia is away at Harvard University.
