Michelle Obama allegedly never wanted to be a mom and was furious at her husband, Barack Obama, that she had to put her career on hold to raise a family, an outlet claimed.
Michelle and Barack Obama have been married for almost three decades already. They share two daughters Malia and Sasha. However, one outlet claimed that Michelle wasn’t sold out to the idea of being a mom.
Michelle allegedly never wanted to be a mom
Globe published a report claiming that the former first lady was furious at her husband, Barack Obama. Michelle Obama was allegedly not happy that she had to put her career on hold to raise a family.
The outlet added that she resented the ex-POTUS for insisting that they have children and prioritizing his political career over her own ambitions as a lawyer.
“Even after she became first lady, Michelle felt like she was cheated, and she never let Barack forget it,” an anonymous insider said.
The outlet noted that Michelle’s disappointment was compounded because she had a good career and was advancing in her craft. However, she gave in to her husband’s desire to have a family even if she never wanted to have kids.
The tabloid quoted an insider saying Barack wanted to have a family because he knew it would help him in his political ambitions. The outlet also recounted Michelle’s infertility and miscarriages, noting that she suffered them alone because her husband was too busy with work.
When they were successful with IVF, the outlet noted that Michelle was still not ready to change course. She wasn’t ready to switch from being an ambitious lawyer to becoming a mom, the tabloid reported.
Gossip Cop examined the report and debunked it because it was not true. Michelle Obama has opened up about the whole issues in her memoir Becoming.
The former first lady admitted that she had to let go of her tight grip on her career to be a mom. And she said she wasn’t ready for that.
Michelle also admitted that she resented Barack for his absence through IVF. However, she made it clear that he was always there when he could be and even said he was “doting and invested” in starting their own family.
While it’s true that Michelle struggled with anxiety and fertility treatment, another thing is true — she wanted a baby. According to Michelle, having her own child “was a need that had been there forever.”
Michelle did not have any regrets about having her daughters, Malia and Sasha. The claim that she resented Barack for putting her career on hold to raise their family is also far-fetched, the rumor debunking site added.
Apparently, Michelle was as eager as Barack in starting their own family.
