Sasha Obama was seven when her father, Barack, became President of the US.  

Fast-forward eight years: Obama is out of office and Sasha is now celebrating her 16th birthday.

According to the YBF, Sasha actually celebrated her coming of age with a birthday party in May, but photos of the event went viral on Twitter.

Take a look below:

Sasha turned 16 on June 10 but celebrated with a sweet 16 birthday party in May. Her parents, Michelle and Barack attended the event.

Sasha wore a long, satin red dress from designer Jill Stuart.

This colour and style of dress is currently out of stock at Jill Stuart but is available online at Nordstrom and Revolve. Costing $398 and $286 respectively.

In May, Sasha shared a photo of herself with friends at the party on Instagram. Her account has now been taken down.




Over the weekend, fans took to Twitter to wish Sasha a happy birthday.




Some were confused to find out that Sasha is actually her nickname and a shortened version of her full name, Natasha.
