Awwww, Daddy!

President Barack Obama had a hard time leaving his baby girl Malia Obama to start her freshmen year at Harvard University just weeks ago.

In fact, he said dropping her off was “like open-heart surgery.”

“For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery,” Obama said, CNN reported.

“I was proud that I did not cry in front of her. But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose,” he said. “It was rough.”

He called the experience “a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the things that we’ll remember are the joys that our children — and hopefully way later, our grandchildren — bring us.”

*virtual hug* It’s going to be OK, Dad.
