The Obamas never disappoint with the heartfelt messages to one another and Michelle's birthday was no exception!
Former first lady Michelle Obama turned 56 on Friday and her ever-doting husband celebrated the occasion and how! Barack Obama is known for penning heartfelt messages for his better half and then sharing them on social media, giving us major couple goals and he did not disappoint us this time. He shared a photo booth collage of what might just be the cutest picture of the couple on Instagram, and the 58-year-old wrote, "In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama! Happy birthday, baby!" Talk about making a girl feel special on her birthday!
With everything they've done and achieved, they still know how to have some fun and just be themselves and that, in itself, is a huge feat. I mean, he's married to this amazing woman who does not shy away in his shadow, they've raised two wonderful women, been through 8 years of leading America, been named the most admired man and woman in America and in across the globe, released record-breaking bestseller memoirs, and they still give us major #couplegoals.
Despite the scrutiny their family has been through, Michelle and Barack just seem to know how to keep their romance alive, though Michelle has been open about the fact that they did go to couple's therapy. I mean, it's completely normal to have issues as a couple but what matters is how you deal with it and get back to being in love with one another, like the two of them. For every occasion or achievement, both of them make sure to go all out and celebrate each other. That's what happens when a couple treats each other with equal love and respect.
The father-of-two once surprised the Becoming author during her book tour stop in Washington D.C. last year. "I had that somebody who was that strong and that honest — somebody who I just felt was a rock, somebody who I knew at that point I would always be able to count on, and someone who that, if she were the mother of my children, I knew my children would turn out extraordinary," he said at the time. My heart just could not handle the cuteness.
The way Barack and Michelle treat one another with mutual respect is something all of us can learn from (maybe the *ahem* current POTUS, too?). "27 years ago, this guy promised me a life full of adventure. I’d say he’s delivered. Here’s to our next chapter of becoming empty nesters and discovering what’s next—while still feeling the magic that brought us together all those years ago," Michelle captioned her anniversary post in October, and it looks like their magic is going to cast a spell for years to come. Here's hoping Michelle had a dashing birthday!
