WASHINGTON, June 14 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama told the crowd at an early Father's Day luncheon Friday being a father was "the best job."

"You know obviously this is a great way for us to celebrate Father's Day and -- and just to remind ourselves, those of us who are fathers, how lucky we are," the president said. "It's the best job I've got. And I know that all the fathers here feel the same way."

Obama said his guests represented "a bunch of different organizations. We're very proud of everything you guys do."

Obama welcomed 14 students and five chaperons from Chicago's Hyde Park Academy High School among his guests at the informal luncheon in the State Dining Room to mark Father's Day, the Chicago Tribune said.
