iStock/Alexandrova TatianaThe love is still strong for former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama.
The former president and first lady each took to social media Thursday to wish each other a happy 27th wedding anniversary.
Barack Obama shared a photo of his wife hugging him with the caption, “Like the Beatles said: It’s getting better all the time. Thanks, babe, for 27 amazing years!”
Michelle Obama posted a photo of herself with her husband standing on a balcony at a beach with the caption, “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. Happy anniversary, Barack.”
The Obamas, whose term at the White House ended when President Donald Trump took office in January 2017, are the parents of Malia, a student at Harvard University, and Sasha, who started her freshman year at college this fall.
Michelle Obama wrote in her bestselling memoir Becoming about her deep love affair with her husband, whom she met while she was his mentor at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago.
Obama told Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts last year that she was focused on her law career and was not interested in dating when she first met her future husband.
“I have my suspicions when a bunch of white folks fawn over a black man because I sorta think, ‘Okay, he can talk straight so they think he’s wonderful.'” Obama told Roberts.
“And then in walks Barack Obama,” she continued. “And Barack Obama has always walked like Barack Obama. Like, he’s got all the time in the world. He had that stride … I was, like, ‘Dude, you’re cute.’
