Chris Rock's Daughters Hoping For Play Date With Obama Girls

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.”
