Barack Obama Pays a Very Romantic Tribute to His Wife Michelle on Her 56th Birthday
Michelle Obama recently celebrated her 56th birthday and, as romantic as ever, former United States President Barack Obama didn't miss the chance to show the world how much he loves his wife.
On Friday, the 58-year-old took to his official Instagram account to share four rare black and white photos in which he and Michelle can be seen hugging and kissing.
ALWAYS HIS STAR
It has been reported that the pictures were taken while the famous couple was still in the White House, during a Fourth of July party.
Just as sweet as the photos was the message that Barack left for his partner, wishing her a happy birthday and telling her that she is his star in every scene.
Later on, the former First Lady used her own social media to share a picture of herself and a couple of friends, with whom she celebrated her birthday.
In the post, the group can be seen smiling widely at the camera while in the mountains with a rainbow gracing the background. Michelle also used the publication to thank everyone for the birthday wishes.

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes! With the girls off at college, this birthday brings with it a new perspective—a fresh breath—along my journey. I’m looking forward to devoting some quality time to my friends and to myself—and of course, to that husband of mine, too. I’m looking to make this year the best one yet—can’t wait to keep you all posted along the way.
According to her, now that both her daughters are off at college, she is looking forward to spending some quality time with her friends and husband, as well as herself.
Michelle explained that they can't wait to see their future projects come to life
EXCITED FOR THE OSCARS
Back in 2018, the power couple signed a multi-year deal with the streaming platform to produce several TV shows, films and documentaries.
Obama was overjoyed when he learned of the nomination and immediately took to Twitter to thank all of those involved in the project:
“Glad to see American Factory’s Oscar nod for Best Documentary. It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground. Congrats to the incredible filmmakers and entire team!”

Watching #AmericanFactory, I thought a lot about my dad. That blustery Midwestern weather, the shift workers in their uniforms—it’s what he lived every day. His work was his pride and his sense of purpose; it’s what allowed him to pay the bills and send his two kids to college. I saw a lot of that dignity in this film; a spirit that connects us no matter if we’re in Chicago or Ohio, no matter what we look like or what our background is. This documentary portrays that pride, and adds in all sorts of depth and layers and complications, which makes it exactly the kind of storytelling Barack and I hope to accomplish with Higher Ground Productions. We want to help foster an ability to see ourselves in each other’s stories. That’s something we talked about with Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, who directed American Factory, over coffee. See for yourself at the link in the bio and then check out their excellent documentary, which is now streaming on @Netflix.
Michelle explained that they can't wait to see their future projects come to life, especially because they believe there is something for everyone, something that people will enjoy watching at the end of the day.
