Did second First Daughter Sasha Obama come close to death as a baby?
That's frighteningly true! President Obama revealed the secret about his youngest daughter during the first ever Internet Town Hall meeting this week.
Obama said, "She got meningitis when she was 3 months old... very dangerous. The doctors did a terrific job."
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), meningitis causes approximately 170,000 deaths worldwide in children under the age of 5.
The 7-year-old is healthy now -- and cute as a button!
Is the White House really divided just like Congress?
That's true! Social Secretary Desiree Rogers says, "The east side is typically the First Lady's side. The West side is typically the President's side of the house."
Desiree reveals the more relaxed side of the White House for WashingtonPost.com, and that the new Prez ditches his suit jacket when he's in the Oval Office. Malia and Sasha enjoy time with the Nintendo Wii and Michelle Obama is comfy being called "Mom in Chief!"
What is the best way to welcome two tweens to their new home? With the Jonas Brothers, of course! Last night, Malia and Sasha Obama were paid a very special White House visit by the "Burnin' Up" boys.
ABC News reports the First Daughters invited some pals from their new school, Sidwell Friends, to watch "High School Musical 3" and "Bolt" and participate in a scavenger hunt around their new D.C. home. White House ushers organized a similar hunt for Chelsea Clinton when she first moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 1993, but this time around was a little different. At the end of the hunt, the sisters opened a door to find their favorite heartthrobs -- Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas. OMG!!!

It's no secret that Malia and Sasha are "Hannah Montana" fans, but did the first daughters really choose the Kids' Inaugural Ball lineup, including Miley?
That's true! Cyrus shared the stage with rapper Bow Wow last night, who revealed to "Extra" that the lineup for "The Kids' Inaugural: We Are the Future" was planned by Obama's girls. "It was all Obama's daughters," said Bow Wow. "They chose the lineup to perform, they chose me, so I was happy."
As their father takes office today, Malia and Sasha prepare for the transition to life at the White House. Their predecessors, Jenna and Barbara Bush, penned an open letter to the new girls -- reminding them that it's still okay to slide down banisters and dress up for Halloween.
Malia and Sasha dressed in J.Crew coats in the winter chill for their dad's big day!
A rep for J.Crew dished to Life & Style magazine that the First Daughters bundled up in peacoats from the "crewcuts" collection to watch Barack's inaugural address. Malia, 10, opted for a bright blue coat tied with a bow, while sister Sasha, 7, went for the same coat in a pale pink and orange.
Tweens ruled at "The Kids' Inaugural: We Are the Future" event, where Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and Bow Wow rocked the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The show celebrated the inauguration while honoring military families.
Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama were spotted in front-row seats during the 90-minute concert. The hot tickets were also provided to military families and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and locals.
Miley rocked a three-song set, while the JoBros got the crowd to their feet for their hit "SOS." "High School Musical" hunk Corbin Bleu and Demi Lovato also sang. Hollywood stars including Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, George Lopez and Usher appeared on stage for the concert that aired on the Disney Channel.
