Barack Obama may longer be the President of the United States, but his wife Michelle Obama will always be his first lady.
On Wednesday, to celebrate his wife’s 54th birthday, Obama posted a special message on Instagram to thank her for her love, support
“You’re not only my wife and the mother of my children, you’re my best friend,” his note began. “I love your strength, your grace, and your determination. And I love you more each day. Happy Birthday, @MichelleObama”
The caption accompanied a sweet throwback photo of the pair as the former Commander-in-Chief stared at his wife adoringly.
But that wasn’t the only message from the Obamas that made us teary-eyed. In turn, the birthday girl also took to Instagram to thank her husband for the sweet card and bouquet of flowers he left for her.
“Thank you @BarackObama for the beautiful flowers waiting for me in the office this morning,” Mrs. Obama wrote. “You’re my best friend, biggest fan, and getting notes and flowers from you will never get old. And to the many people from around the country who sent cards and posted on social media, you have no idea how much we love hearing from you. I know birthdays can sometimes be bittersweet (54!), but your messages of hope, generosity, and warmth have always reminded me how lucky and blessed we are.”
The Obamas and their love never disappoint!
