Granny Obama Graces ‘Essence' With Daughter Michelle Obama

Pictures of the First Grandma, Marian Robinson, posing with her daughter Michelle Obama have made their way to the web after the duo was featured on the cover of Essence magazine, marking the First Granny’s official debut on a print publication.

Judging by the interview in the magazine, Michelle Obama is very closer with her mother.

"You want to know why? Because my children are good parents," Marian Robinson said, then gushed about how proud she was of her daughter for becoming the First Lady. "I never doubted that she could do this. She is doing it with such grace and dignity."

Michelle Obama attributed some of her best traits to her mother, saying, "She taught my brother and me to work hard, but to learn to laugh at situations and laugh at yourself and then to move through it."

I have a feeling these won’t be the last pictures of the First Grandma we see, especially with the rising influence of older females as fashion icons.
