Michelle Obama’s tell-all book

The Sunday Times - - WORLD -

MICHELLE Obama, the for­mer first lady of the US, has re­vealed she used IVF treat­ment to con­ceive her two daugh­ters, af­ter once suf­fer­ing a mis­car­riage.

In a deeply per­sonal in­ter­view, Mrs Obama, wife of for­mer pres­i­dent Barack Obama, also said the pair had un­der­gone mar­riage coun­selling. Mrs Obama also said she would “never for­give” Donald Trump for en­dan­ger­ing her fam­ily by es­ca­lat­ing claims that her hus­band was not born in Amer­ica, trig­ger­ing a new row with the pres­i­dent yes­ter­day.

The rev­e­la­tions were made in her new mem­oir, Be­com­ing, which will be pub­lished on Tues­day, and in an in­ter­view with ABC News. They pro­vide an in­ti­mate por­trayal of a re­la­tion­ship that sat at the heart of the White House for eight years dur­ing Mr Obama’s pres­i­dency, which ended last year.

The mem­oir ful­fils half of a deal that pub­lisher Pen­guin Ran­dom House struck with the Oba­mas to each pub­lish a book, re­port­edly for more than $US60 mil­lion.
