Dutch couple's family is complete, viewers love their selfies and Michelle Obama is making progress.

1. Michelle Obama sat down with Jenna Bush Hager to celebrate the fourth anniversary of her Let’s Move campaign as part of this week’s Love Your Selfie series. The first lady talked about her recent appearances, including last week’s hilarious skit on “The Tonight Show.”

“Sometimes, if you get up and dance and you're silly, maybe your kids get up and dance and they're silly and they let the guard down,” Obama said.

Video: Michelle Obama is on the road to promote the fourth year of her “Let’s Move” initiative, and TODAY correspondent Jenna Bush Hager joins her to chat about her fight against childhood obesity. With “small changes, we’re starting to make some progress,” the first lady says.

2. Three months after meeting their adopted baby on TODAY, Priscilla Devries and Richard Dros told Keir Simmons their family is doing well.

“Our family is complete now: we have a boy, we have a girl,” Richard said.

Video: Three months after they first brought home their new daughter, Sky, TODAY checks back in with a Dutch couple who were spotlighted on the show’s “Born Today” series on adoption. NBC’s Keir Simmons reports.

3. You go girl(s)! To celebrate the end of our Love Your Selfie series, Studio 1A hosted a Catwalk of Confidence.

5. Jeff Rossen led an investigation into before-and-after weight-loss ads. He interviewed Brook, whose picture was used in an ad for Wu-Yi Source Tea.

“I haven't even tried the tea,” she laughed. “I don't even know what this tea is!”

Video: TODAY’s national investigative correspondent reveals the deception behind some “before and after” weight-loss pictures, and shows how some companies manipulate images.
