The Washington Post  The Washington Post

In the memoir, Obama also writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life and becoming the country's first black first lady.

"I realized that as I was 34 and 35 that we had to do IVF", she says.

In an interview with Robin Roberts, which aired in part on Good Morning America on Friday, the former first lady said she chose to come public with her painful experience to help others who have had to go through a similar situation.

On her miscarriage, she said: "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

She made this known in an interview with Robin Roberts, ABC anchor, on the upcoming release of her book, Becoming.

She and her husband subsequently "had to do IVF" to conceive Sasha, 17, and Malia, 20, and Michelle details her fertility battle in her new memoir, Becoming.

In excerpts from the book that have already been published, Michelle also blasts President Donald Trump, recalling how she reacted in shock the night she learned he would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to "block it all out".

Mrs Obama, 54, told Good Morning America that losing the unborn child 20 years ago left her feeling 'lost and alone'.

For many, Barack and Michelle Obama's nearly-three decades long romance is the ultimate relationship goals, but the former First Lady wants people to know that a good marriage and partnership takes work - and that it's not wrong to ask for help when you need it.

She also denounces Trump's years' long "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and risky, "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks". "But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

'What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?

In her book, Obama also opens up about her husband's presidential run in 2007. What if that person went looking for our girls? "And for this, I'd never forgive him". "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she continues, calling out the president.

On the infamous leaked Access Hollywood tape, where Trump was heard boasting about how he liked to 'Grab (women) by the pussy, ' Mrs Obama said that her 'body buzzed with fury after hearing (it)'. She accused Trump of "stalk [ing]" Clinton during an election debate by following her around the stage, standing near her and "trying to diminish her presence".

The primetime ABC exclusive special "Becoming Michelle: A First Lady's Journey with Robin Roberts", airs on Sunday, November 11, at 9 p.m. ET.
