New York, Jul 19 : A pair of Long Island sisters are constantly stopped for autographs - because people keep mistaking them for Sasha and Malia Obama, daughters of US President Barack Obama.
Nandra Best and her young sister Krissy Best are basking in the adoration that follows the First Daughters and even won an Obama daughters look-alike contest on 'Live With Regis and Kelly.'
"We tell people, 'No, we're not' but they keep on insisting that we're them," the New York Daily News quoted Krissy as saying. Their mom, Karen Noel Best, wasn't surprised her daughters made it to the finals of the "Live" contest.
"People have been saying they look like the Obama girls since the election. We go to the mall and restaurants and people always stop us. Sometimes I say, 'Yes, they are the girls, and I'm their nanny and we have to go,'" she said.
The girls said being on TV was a thrill that could only by topped by meeting Sasha and Malia in person. "That would be so awesome. My family voted for Obama and we worked for the campaign," Krissy said.
Karen says she's glad that her daughters picked up Obamas as their role models. "I really do share a lot of values with the president and I like the way he raises his daughters. He talks about how important reading to kids is. I love that my daughters look up to the Obamas," Karen said.
