We can boldly say that there’s not a soul alive that doesn’t know who Michelle Obama is, from people in the rural areas to newborn babies, best believe that they all know who she is. Though today is all about Michelle Obama’s height, weight, and body measurements, we are overjoyed that we get to check out some facts about the former FLOTUS.
She was born Michelle LaVaughn Robinson on January 17, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois. Of course we know that these days she goes by the name Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama.
Her father, Fraser Robinson III was a city water plant employee and Democratic precinct captain, while her mother Marian Shields Robinson was a secretary at Spiegel’s catalog store.
It’s such a pity that her dad did not get to see what a wonderful lady she grew up to be, as he passed away when she was in her 20’s.
Her nickname is ‘Miche’, but occasionally Barack calls her ‘My Rock’.
She still has quite the athletic built, so it’s no surprise that she was a great athlete. Nevertheless she shied away from competitive sports because, her big brother says, ‘she hated losing’.
Despite the fact that her teachers did not have that much faith in her at some point, she made up her mind to be smart against all odds, she graduated from high school second in her year.
We don’t know how many women would do this, especially in this era of radical feminism, but Michelle cut back from her six-figure salary with the University of Chicago hospital system to help her husband with his campaign.
Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama are the only First Ladies to receive master’s degrees and she ties with Eleanor Roosevelt as the tallest first lady.
This is a fun one… she makes Barack do the dishes from time to time.
As much as we would love to go on and on… and on about her, it’s time to dig in to the topic at hand beginning with Michelle Obama’s height.
Michelle Obama’s Height
Michelle Obama’s height is probably one of those things that really gets noticed about her, after all she does tie with Eleanor Roosevelt as the tallest first ladies of the United States of America. So, that’s a big ‘yes’ on the front of her height standing out. So how tall is she anyway? She stands quite tall at 5 feet 11 inches, no doubt that has gotten her a lot of attention throughout the years.
Well, it definitely has gotten her lots of unwanted attention as the First lady, she told Jimmy Kimmel that she occasionally tries to sneak out just to have a ‘normal day’ like everyone else, but her height draws attention to her, then the next thing people start to realize that she is actually Michelle Obama.
Well, theirs is a tall family with Barack standing at 6 feet and an inch and Malia is the same height, while Sasha also stands as tall as her mother. In addition to that here are a few notable celebrities who stand as tall as the former FLOTUS. Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, James Franco and Gisele Bündchen all share Michelle Obama’s height.
Michelle Obama’s Weight
Michelle Obama has always been in pretty good shape and we have even had the privilege of ‘weighing’ in on a few of her gym sessions, courtesy of the Obamas being quite the open first family. She undoubtedly goes hard or goes… well, home. The former First lady’s listed weight is 77 kilograms, but sometime last year the tabloids had a few things to say about her weight.
In September last year, the tabloids decided to spin their own tale into something else that was more than a bit insulting to the while first family. RadarOnline caught loads of attention with a headline, ’95 LB Weight Gain! Michelle Obama Binge Eating Over Wild Child Malia, Sources Claim.’
The National Enquirer, was no better as the caption ‘ President Obama had issued a “diet or divorce” ultimatum’ went on to catch more unprecedented attention. Well, we all saw the first lady during last year’s presidential campaign and if she did bulk up at all, it was not noticeable in any way. She still looked as healthy and toned as ever.
