Obama, who worked as a lawyer and hospital administrator before becoming first lady, told Roberts that it hit her at ages 34 and 35 that "the biological clock is real" and "egg production is limited".

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. Biographies by first ladies, including Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush, instantly land on best-sellers lists.

Obama is the mother of 17-year-old Sasha and 20-year-old Malia.

"For this", she writes, "I'd never forgive him".

"I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", Obama said in the special which will run Sunday.

Becoming also tells of the hurt Mrs Obama felt at being portrayed as an "angry black woman" by critics after her husband made a decision to run for president.

Michelle Obama is opening up about having a miscarriage about twenty years ago.

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

At the time, Michelle was working as her future husband's adviser at a law firm, Sidley Austin LLP, and she writes that she was determined thing between them should remain friendly, despite feeling an instant attraction to him.

I really don't know what to say other than I love this girl with all my heart and I'd give my life right now for a miracle. Police identified the gunman as Ian David Long a 28-year-old Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan, CNN reported.

And she lashed Donald Trump's unfounded claims that her husband was secretly a foreign-born Muslim as "crazy and mean-spirited" with an undercurrent of 'bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed'.

And despite repeated calls for her to run as president, Mrs Obama said the experience of campaigning alongside her husband has put her off politics for life.

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

Mr Trump suggested Mr Obama was not born in the USA, but overseas, and so disqualifying him from the office of president. The former president was born in Hawaii. Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk.

Despite working to build a "phenomenal" relationship together, Michelle also admits in her book that the romance between the two nearly never happened - because she insisted that they should just be friends.

And when Trump was elected president, she says she was surprised that so many women would choose a "misogynist" over "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".

Mrs Obama also accuses Mr Trump of using body language to "stalk" Mrs Clinton during one of their election debates.

And she recalls how her body "buzzed with fury" after seeing the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Mr Trump brags about sexually assaulting women. Mrs. Obama's promotional tour begins Tuesday, November 13 at Chicago's United Center, where Oprah Winfrey will join her.
