WASHINGTON - A teenage rite of passage has come to the White House, with President Barack Obama revealing that daughter Malia recently attended her first prom.

Obama wouldn't say whether his older daughter had a date or went with friends. He joked it's "classified information" during an interview airing Friday on the talk show "Live! With Kelly and Michael."

But the president said he doesn't think he'd been too intimidating for any boy who might roll up to the White House to pick Malia up.

Obama said it was "a little bit jarring" to see his 15-year-old 10th grader in heels for the first time. He said Malia looked beautiful.

The president said he and the first lady were worried that growing up in the White House would give their daughters "an attitude." But he expressed pride that they have remained respectful, kind and considerate young women and gave credit to his wife.
