Mushy posts shared by oh-so-much-in-love couples make for a pretty good eye roll and an IDC scroll up. Buuut, when you have Barack Obama posting sweet nothings for his beau, Michelle Obama, then you stop and adore the couple.
Barack Obama just shared a throwback picture for Michelle Obama’s 55th birthday and celebrated their unique bond.
The post has garnered over 4.7 million likes on Instagram and over 1.2 millions on Twitter. His minimalistic caption is the warmest thing.
“I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today — you’re one of a kind, @MichelleObama. Happy Birthday!”
According to Sky News, the picture was most likely taken in Kenyan city of Mombasa in 1991, the year they got engaged.
Michelle responded to Obama’s tweet with much reciprocation and reminisced of the good ol’ days.
“Can’t wait to see what becomes of the next one!”
Thank you all so much for the birthday love—I love you all right back! Feeling so incredibly thankful for my South Side roots, my soul-affirming partner and daughters, and every unimaginable twist and turn over these 55 years. Can’t wait to see what becomes of the next one! https://t.co/XPiPpFY4HT— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) January 17, 2019
