Malia Obama Receives a Car for her 16th Birthday

First Lady Michelle Obama Travels to China - Day 5The 4th of July isn’t just America’s birthday, it’s also the birthday of first daughter Malia Obama. The political teen celebrated her 16th birthday, alongside Americans, on the most patriotic holiday of the year. The budding beauty enjoyed some fun, fireworks, and even a performance by Pitbull who lit up the South Lawn of her family’s mansion as part of the White House’s 4th of July celebrations. But no 16th birthday is complete without a glossy gift from the parents.

According to sources, Malia received a brand new car for her milestone bday. Though she’s got the keys to her own car, the teen won’t be able to drive alone for another year. Washington law requires that teens under 17 drive with an adult present.

Back in February mom Michelle Obama joked about her baby girl’s driving skills, giving D.C. drivers fair warning, “‘Ladies and gentlemen in DC, watch out! Malia Obama on the road – kinda frightening.”

No word on what kind of car Malia will be pushing but we’re sure it’s a beauty.
