Barack Obama and daughter Malia take on Broadway


Barack Obama enjoys some quality time with his beautiful daughter Malia.

On Thursday night, the 44th President of the United States — who served from 2009 to 2017 — was spotted catching a meal with his eldest daughter at Emilio’s Ballato, an Italian restaurant in Soho. If you ask us, he’s never been better. As one Twitter user put it, “He’s rested and has a glow about him.”

After being treated like a rockstar while grabbing coffee on Friday afternoon, the two bonded some more in the evening, attending the revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Price” on Broadway, starring Danny DeVito and Mark Ruffalo.

Naturally, Obama caused some commotion, as New Yorkers took to social media to express their excitement. New York Times Culture writer Sophan Deb tweeted, “Barack Obama just arrived in row just behind me for Broadway show. Performance is revival of Arthur Miller’s ‘The Price.'” He continued, “Okay, so it’s intermission. Obama and Malia came in and left when the lights were down. The crowd didn’t notice. Nice job, Secret Service.”

“A woman sitting five seats from Obama just said she didn’t realize it was him,” he later added. Of course, he wasn’t the only one in attendance stanning for the former President:

In case you missed it, Obama and his wife Michelle spent nearly two weeks on a private island belonging to British billionaire and Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, where Barack enjoyed water sports – something he hadn’t done in eight years. In a post on the Virgin website, Branson wrote that he invited the couple to the island for a “complete break” following Obama’s consecutive presidential terms.

In early February, the pair returned to their new $4.3M home in Washington, D.C.
