How tall is Malia Obama? President Barack Obama’s daughter Malia stands 6 feet, 1 inch tall. That means the elder of Obama’s two girls (Sasha being the other) is taller than her mother, Michelle Obama, who’s also said to stand 5 feet, 11 inches. Barack is the same height as his eldest daughter—he stands 6 feet, 1 inch.
Malia Obama was projected to reach 6 feet, 1 inch and it makes her the tallest first daughter in recent history. Chelsea Clinton, daughter of the last Democratic president before Obama, Bill Clinton, stand 5 feet, 9 inches. Jenna Welch Bush Hager, one of George W. Bush’s two twin daughters, stands 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and while it’s harder to come by height data for her sister, Barbara Pierce Bush, they’re likely in the same ballpark.
Malia’s 5-foot, 11-inch frame makes her far taller than the average American woman, who tops out, data suggests, at 5 feet, 3.8 inches. Other people Malia Obama is taller than: all three members of Destiny’s Child (including Beyonce, who’s 5 feet, 7 inches tall), Oprah Winfrey (5 feet, 7 inches) and even towering “Good Morning America” broadcaster and former basketball star Robin Roberts (5 feet, 10 inches).
