A personal photo album intended for one of the first family's closest friends ended up at the wrong address in Chicago, the White House confirmed Thursday.

The Obamas had sent the album to Kaye Wilson, who is a good friend of Michelle Obama and her mother Marian Robinson and is a godmother to Malia and Sasha. But Chicago resident Alane Church told NBC's ‘Today Show" Thursday that his family had gotten it in the bottom of a package they had received from a relative in New York.
