President Barack Obama's daily routine often starts with a tune and ends with a tuck, first lady Michelle Obama told People magazine.

"We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I'm usually in bed before anybody, it was reported she told the magazine for an upcoming issue. "He'll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we'll talk. He's like, "Ready to be tucked?" I'm like, "Yes I am."'

The 44th president of the United States also has a penchant for singing.

"He loves it in the shower in the morning, sings to the kids," she told People. "But it's not a song. He'll sing one line of something romantic or cute."
