President Barack Obama had some amazing words to say about his family – wife Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15 – during his Farewell Address

The President of the United States saved remarks for his family for the end of the address, which was delivered on Tuesday night (January 10) in Chicago, Ill.

Michelle – for the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend,” Obama said. “You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.”

Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad,” he added about his daughters.

President Obama's Farewell Address Will Be a 'Passing of the Baton'

President Barack Obama is set to give his farewell address, and his advisors are briefing the pubic on what they can expect from the televised event, taking place live from Chicago, Illinois tonight.

“It’s a passing of the baton,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement to the Chicago Tribune. “Chicago was a natural place for him, not just because it’s his hometown, but because it’s where he got his political start, and it’s where he really first learned the lesson … that it’s about the actions of individuals and the actions of people, that’s how real change happens.”

“His intention is to motivate people to want to get involved and fight for their democracy,” senior adviser Valerie Jarrett added. “The major focus on the speech isn’t going to be reflecting back on how far we’ve come over the last eight years, but really looking forward and how we take the accomplishments, many (of which) through the hard work and grit of the American people came to fruition, and build on that going forward.”

You can watch the farewell address tonight at 9pm EST on Fox, NBC, ABC and CBS.
