On the other hand, the firstborn, Malia, takes after him much more!

‘Malia is more like me temperamentally. We call ourselves ‘The Long Faces,’ because [Malia’s] face is more shaped like mine, and ‘The Round Faces’ are Michelle and Sasha. The Round Faces are a fiercer tribe. We’re like the vegetarians, the gatherers, and they’re the hunters. We try to keep the peace with them… I’m generally the brunt of jokes in my house,’ he went on to share.

I’m going to make sure my daughters know me, they know they’re loved, they know they’re supported.'’
