LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Sasha and Malia Obama have yet to move in to The White House, but once they do, they’ve already got volunteers for their first celebrity play date – Chris Rock’s daughters.
“His girls are a little older than mine,” Rock told People about Barack & Michelle Obama’s 7- and 10-year-old daughters. “My girls want a play date. They look at the youngest and they’re like, ‘We can play with her, Daddy.’ We’ll see.”
Rock and wife Malaak have two daughters – Lola, 6, and Zahra, 4.
But while a trip to Capitol Hill remains up in the air, the comedian will be heading home for the holidays to his mother’s house in South Carolina – something Rock is still getting used to as a family man.
“Christmas (as an adult) before I had my kids was so uneventful,” he continued. “They were basically like, ‘Argh, I wish this Christmas thing would be over so I can get back to work.’ But now I love the ritual of it. I love the ‘are they asleep yet?’ I love playing Santa.”
