One of America’s beloved families, the Obamas, are admired for their immense love and respect for one another. The former President of the United States, Barack Obama, never misses a chance to praise his loving wife and this time, mother’s day was the perfect occasion for him to make her feel special.
Obama took to Instagram to pay tribute to Michelle with a heartwarming post.
“Happy Mother's Day to the most caring, brilliant, funny, and grounded woman I know—a perfect role model not just for our daughters, but so many others. Love you, @MichelleObama,” he captioned the post that features Michelle with their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
The former First Lady also paid tribute to her own mother ahead of Mother’s Day with a touching post.
Pouring her heart out, Michelle shared how she has been grateful towards women who played an important role in shaping her into the woman she is today.
“I’ve been grateful to be surrounded by so many strong, intelligent, warm-hearted women who, along with my mother, have made me who I am. They include my soft-spoken grandmother LaVaughn, whose work managing a Bible book store showed me some of my first glimpses of a woman in charge.”

Michelle extended her gratitude towards women in her life including her grandmother, aunt, and her college mentor.
“I sparred with my Aunt Robbie, who lived below us, during piano lessons—but her teaching showed me the importance of hard work and preparation, and she was always there for me when I needed her most. My mentor at Princeton, Czerny, saw potential in me and did her part to get me to step outside of my comfort zone—to be a little more bold, a little less cautious,” she wrote.
Continuing her post, she requested her followers to show appreciation to all the important women in their lives including their mothers on their special day.
