President Barack Obama revealed his wife Michelle can be "relentless" with her teasing and she "gets jealous when I sing too much."

"She is just relentless," Obama said during an appearance on ABC's The View.

Obama also joked that he was a "classic example of a dumb husband, screwing up" when he walked off Air Force One without the First Lady. But he didn't limit his personal stories to his wife Michelle -- he also revealed how daughters Sasha and Malia view their dad as "the right amount of embarrassing."

"Malia and Sasha and a bunch of my friends and Michelle had sort of like a [birthday] roast, a little private roast, each one of them read something and Malia and Sasha had written out why I am such a wonderful dad," Obama said. "They had this list, it was so sweet. And one of the items on Malia's list was 'you are just the right amount of embarrassing.'"

This was Obama's second major appearance on ABC in the last week. On Wednesday, he came out in support of gay marriage in an interview with Robin Roberts.

This week, Obama targeted rival Mitt Romney on gay marriage, claiming the issue would cause "big contrast in the campaign." HuffPost reports:

The president also said Romney's support of a constitutional amendment "federalized the whole issue," adding, "He would defend the Defense of Marriage Act. So there are real differences here."

Romney opposes civil unions and gay marriage. "My view is the domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights, and the like are appropriate but that the others are not," he recently told local Denver station KDVR-TV.

Obama came out in support of gay marriage last week.

Below, a slideshow of images of the president on "The View."
