Barack Obama Celebrates Wife Michelle’s Birthday With Stunning Throwback Photo
Former US President, Barack Obama has taken to social media to celebrate his wife Michelle’s 57th birthday with a stunning throwback photo.
Obama posted a picture of a very young Michelle and captured it with a love note.
The couple met when they were among the few African Americans at their law firm, Sidley Austin LLP. Michelle was assigned to mentor Barack while he was a summer associate in 1989.
On October 3, 1992, the couple got married. Michelle noted that her husband’s vows were a glimpse at what was to come.
“Barack didn’t pledge riches, only a life that would be interesting. On that promise he delivered,” she said.
Obama’s post, which has racked up over 2.5 million reactions on social media and counting, is just one of many tributes to his wife.
He once credited Mrs. Obama for being the most “caring, brilliant, funny, and grounded woman I know,” and a “perfect role model not just for our daughters, but so many others.”
The feeling is most certainly mutual. Mrs. Obama always speaks about her husband being her “teammate,” and what couples who look up to them should know.
“There are a lot of young couples that look up to me and Barack. We’re hashtag relationship goals. And young couples think, all they see of us are the fist bumps and love…Marriage is work, marriage is hard. But like a man, he was like, “Are you sure you want to talk about this?”
