U.S president Barack Obama wished his first daughter Malia a happy 18th birthday on Monday, 4th of July,Â the same day America celebrated its independence.
Obama, flanked by rapper Kendrick Lamar, belted out a croakyÂ version of happy birthday song to his daughter, while the crowd at the annual Fourth of July party at the White House cheered on.
â€˜Because itâ€™s a job of fathers to embarrass their daughters, Iâ€™ve got one last job,â€™ Obama joked as the audience began to applaud. â€˜It just so happens we celebrate our countryâ€™s birthday on the same day as my oldest daughterâ€™s birthday, so just a quick Happy Birthday for Malia,â€™ Obama added before breaking into song.
