Ahead of the release of her memoir, Michelle Obama went no holds barred when it came to discussing her sex life with former president Barack Obama. In an extremely candid chat with ABC news, the former First Lady spoke about her 'lust' for her husband, and nothing was off limits.

In her conversation with Robin Roberts about her highly personal new memoir, 'Becoming', Michelle revealed a lot about the time when she first started dating the former POTUS, as per Hollywood Life

Recounting the duo's first date, Michelle told the journalist how Barack was late on their first meeting itself. The couple had decided to meet each other after Michelle said she was going to mentor him at her law firm Sidley and Austin.

“So I didn’t really know what to expect,” Michelle admitted. “And then in walks Barack Obama. And Barack Obama has always walked like Barack Obama. Like, he’s got all the time in the world. He’s– he had that stride. I was, like, ‘Dude, you’re cute.’ But in my mind, I was, like — Off limits.”

But it appeared that Barack's “straightforward” persistence resulted in the two dating after hanging out eventually, with time. “When we stopped for ice cream and he got the sense that I was starting to open up,” Michelle revealed. 

“And he, you know, he played it real smooth. He just leaned in for a kiss. And that really was it. You know, from that kiss on, we were– it was– it was love. And he was my man.” Michelle opened up about admitting to her lust for Barack in her book Becoming. “…[I]t’s there. I don’t know what to tell you,” she told Robin. “It was– it was there. It still is. I love my husband a lot.”

Michelle's interview about her lovely relationship with her husband comes only days after ABC released a preview of  Michelle recounting her painful miscarriage that happened before she and Barack Obama had daughters Sasha and Malia. “I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” Michelle said.

“We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken. That’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen.” She added, “The biological clock is real. I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF. 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.”
