Former First Lady Michelle Obama is a champion of education, civil rights, and, apparently, birthdays.
The Harvard graduate and mother of two celebrated husband and former President Barack Obama’s 56th birthday in the most 2017 way: through social media. On Friday, she took to both Instagram and Twitter to publicly send him her well wishes.
First of all, her message is as sweet as the cake in the photograph. “Another year older, but the same phenomenal guy I married nearly 25 years ago. Happy birthday @BarackObama—we love you so much!” she wrote.
Phenomenal guy? C’mooon. We may have just shed a tear.
In the shot, Barack appears to be turning 43 judging by the candles on the cake. That would mean the photograph was taken in 2004, when their daughters, Malia and Sasha, were just 6 and 3, respectively. In the image, the girls look up at their father in an adoring way, happy to share the love on his big day.
Though Michelle shared the exact same message on Twitter, the tweet came with one more shot of the family together, blowing out Barack’s birthday candles.
Something tells us they’re busy doing the exact same thing this year.
Not to be missed? Former Vice President Joe Biden's kind words.
Long live their #bromance.
