In her upcoming book, Becoming, however, the mother of two shed light on some personal battles she long kept out of the public spotlight.
Among those struggles were her and Barack’s challenges starting a family. As ABC News anchor Robin Roberts reported on Friday, Michelle had gotten pregnant and then suffered a miscarriage.
“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 said in the exclusive interview with Roberts. “We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
Through in-vitro fertilization, the couple conceived their two daughters, Malia, 20, and Sasha, 17. “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 because egg production is limited and I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF,” she told Roberts. “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.”
Kim Kardashian was forced to evacuate her home on Thursday night after a wildfire started spreading in California.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was just returning from a trip when she saw the flames from the window of her private plane. Once she touched down, she had to quickly gather her belongings and head to safer grounds.
“Pray for Calabasas,” she wrote on Instagram. “Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. I pray everyone is safe.”
Kardashian also shared footage of the police and fire departments responding to the emergency.
“Fire fighters are arriving,” she wrote in another post. “Thank you for all that you do for us.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed to Andy Cohen the details of her cold bed and lonely nights:
“There have always been rumors that you and Joe were going to get divorced, and now he’s been away and my poor girl has not had sex in a long time ‘cause there’s no conjugal visits,” Andy Cohen pointed out on Wednesday, November 7. Teresa, 46, nodded and responded, “Two years and seven months. I’m counting.”
