The hour-long episode, the first of six total in Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, is full of fascinating insights into Obama's life — but the best part was when he talked about fatherhood. Like when he cried after dropping Malia, his oldest daughter, off at college, and the secret service pretended not to notice.

But one of the most charming parts of the premiere is actually a story from Letterman. He explained what happened when he first introduced himself to Malia.

During a function at the White House, Letterman approached Malia to explain how he knew her parents, and thank her for inviting him.
