It's Michelle Obama's birthday today and Barack wants you to know she's his star

A pro in nailing heartfelt social media posts for his wife, the former President shared what might be the greatest photobooth couple photo series ever to mark his beloved wife's birthday.

Former first lady Michelle Obama turns 56 today and her ever doting husband Barack marked the special occasion with a gift for all of us. A pro in nailing heartfelt social media posts for his wife, the former President shared what might be the greatest photobooth couple photo series ever. Posting a collage of black and white photos of the #couplegoals duo on Instagram, 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!

 



 

 

While the post is technically meant to celebrate the badass woman he's married to, we can't help but thank former President Obama for gracing us with these greatest of all time photo booth snaps. I mean, here's a couple that has raised two lovely daughters, been through 8 years of leading America, bagged lucrative deals with giants like Netflix and Spotify, been named the most admired man and woman in America and in all the world, released record-breaking bestseller memoirs, nominated for a Grammy AND an Oscar, and still having a ton of fun! If this isn't your kind of couple goals, I don't know what is.

 



 

 

Despite having gone through unbelievable public scrutiny over their two terms in the White House, Michelle and Obama have managed to keep their romance alive and majestically so. Remember the time the father-of-two 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 and we pretty much melted into a puddle on the floor.

 



 

 

While there's a lot about their relationship that sets them apart and makes them our favorite first couple of all time, their mutual respect and admiration for each other is what stands out the most. "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 by the looks of it, their adventure is just getting started. Here's wishing you a very happy birthday, Michelle!
