They are one of the most popular couples in the USA: the Obamas. The former US President gave kind words to his wife on their 31st wedding anniversary.
On October 3, 1992, Barack and Michelle Obama married. Their 31st wedding anniversary was on Tuesday – the politician, who was President of the United States from 2009 to 2017, took the opportunity to share a sweet post for his wife.
Barack Obama posted a photo on Instagram showing himself and his wife. The two are standing in front of a field, laughing heartily, wearing casual clothes. The 62-year-old is wearing cream trousers and a navy blue jacket, while his wife is wearing blue jeans and a matching puffer jacket.
Barack Obama took the opportunity to make an emotional declaration of love to the former First Lady on her anniversary. “Happy anniversary, honey. You’re amazing, kind, funny, and beautiful — and I’m so lucky to have you as mine,” he wrote.
“You two are a great couple.”
The two’s followers were excited, with nearly a million people liking the post. The comments section was filled with heart emojis, including from celebrities like actress Julia Roberts. Countless users also left kind words for the couple. “Happy Anniversary to the best President and First Lady. We will miss you so much”, “I just love you! Keep having happy years of love” or “You are such a wonderful couple” can be read below the post.
Even though Barack Obama is no longer in office, the former president is still very popular around the world. Many fans showed up when he appeared in Berlin in May. Fans were willing to pay huge sums for it: the cheapest tickets to the event cost between €61.10 and €83.10 – but the “exclusive VIP pass”, which also included a selfie, cost a tidy sum of around €2,500.
