London, Sept 12: US First Lady Michelle Obama hugs everyone she meets to relax them.
Obama admits that she gets just as much out of being affectionate as those being hugged.
"I'd be intimidated, too, to meet the First Lady," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Woman and Home magazine.
"That's why I'm so touchy with kids, because I think if I touch them and I hug them, that they'll see that it's real and then relax and breathe.
"And actually I kind of enjoy the time and make use of it," she added.
