Barack Obama wishes a happy 58th birthday to ‘best friend’ Michelle


Former President Obama is wishing a happy birthday to his “best friend,” his wife, Michelle.

The ex-commander in chief shared a lovey-dovey message directed to his spouse on Twitter on Monday, her 58th birthday.

In the tweet to his more than 130 million followers, Obama said of his wife, “My love, my partner, my best friend…”

Obama also shared a snapshot of the pair — who recently made their annual Christmas trip to Hawaii — in a tropical locale. The 44th president is seen kissing a smiling Michelle Obama’s cheek in the photo.

The Obamas — who tied the knot in 1992 — often mark each other’s birthdays with doting social media posts to each other and never-before-seen photographs. In a 2020 tweet, Barack Obama dubbed the former first lady his “star,” while Michelle Obama called her husband a “phenomenal guy” when he turned 56 in 2017.
