Say what you like about the Obamas, there’s no denying they’re couple goals. And this sweet anniversary post has truly cemented their status this week!
The Obamas have become one of the most famous families in the world.
Since Barack Obama became president in 2008, he and his family have been catapulted to unprecedented levels of fame.
Obama became the president of the people…
And gained a strong and loyal fan base as a result of his progressive views on social issues such as same-sex marriage and gun control.
He successfully served two terms as president…
And, in his 8 years in the White House, Obama cut taxes for working families, small businesses and first-time homebuyers, as well as sticking to his promise of tackling financial reform, alternative energy, reinventing education, and health care.
But Barack wasn’t alone in his presidential journey.
Continuously supporting him was his wife, Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama quickly became just as famous as her husband…
And she made the most idyllic First Lady.
The Obama’s have a lengthy love story.
The couple first met when a then twenty-five-year-old Michelle Robinson was assigned as a mentor for a twenty-eight-year-old Barack Obama at their law firm.
Though Michelle admits that, initially, she wasn’t too keen on the idea of dating Barack…
“Barack, about a month in, asked me out, and I thought ‘No way. This is completely tacky,’” she told Abc News when discussing how the pair had met.
But it was clearly meant to be.
Barack’s proposed date was clearly a hit, as the pair were quick to become a couple, and later tied the knot in 1992.
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 later called
Michelle supported her husband as he navigated his way through politics…
And, along with their two young daughters, was suddenly catapulted into the spotlight when he ran for president.
It didn’t take the world long to fall completely in love with Michelle.
People simply loved the First Lady.
And, even after Barack’s presidency came to an end…
Michelle has remained very much in the hearts of our nation and is still regularly seen out and about at public events.
Her post-White House career is flourishing.
Her memoir, Becoming, which was published in November last year, has become one of the most successful books of the decade, and she regularly attends public engagements and does work for a variety of charities.
In fact, Michelle is the most admired woman in the world!
Beating out other contenders such as Oprah Winfrey, Greta Thunberg, and Hilary Clinton.
The numbers don’t lie!
Michelle, we love you, we miss you… Please come back!
And this week, the Obamas celebrated a big milestone.
They’ve been together for 28 years – and people are loving their sweet social media tributes …
They shared a message of love – and some important instructions!
“28 years with this one. 💕 I love @BarackObama for his smile, his character, and his compassion. So grateful to have him as a partner through everything life throws at us. And this year, we have a request for you — pick one person in your life who might not vote and make sure they do. Tell us about it in the comments! That’s an anniversary message of the best kind. Love you, Barack. ❤️😘”
Barack’s post was similarly sweet.
“Even with everything going on, I wanted to take a moment to say happy anniversary to the love of my life. Every day with @MichelleObama makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better human. This year, while we appreciate all your well-wishes, what we’d really love is for each of you to reach out to one person in your life who might not vote. Help them get registered. Help them make a plan to cast their ballot. Send them to iwillvote.com to get started. Happy anniversary, Miche. Love you.”
Too cute for words.
