January 17th is former First Lady Michelle Obama’s birthday, and President Obama reminded everyone just how much he loves her by posting a sweet post dedicated to her on social media. The Obamas appear to be having some fun in a photobooth – and who can resist a good photobooth, right?
Barack and Michelle Obama have been married since 1992 and it looks like the fun of their love wasn’t totally wiped out by the Presidency. President Obama seems joyful, even playful – throwing up a peace sign in one pic and wrapping her in his arms with his back to the camera in another snap.
It’s not the first time the First Husband has released a tribute to his wife on her birthday. Each year, he finds a moment to post something lovely about his wife on her special day, despite the trolls in his comments and replies being hateful.
It’s Michelle’s 56th birthday and no doubt she spent it celebrating, as 2020 has already yielded good news for the Obamas on the professional front! One of the films they produced through their overall deal at Netflix, “American Factory,” was nominated for an Oscar.

So thrilled to receive a #GRAMMYs nomination! This past year has been such a meaningful, exhilarating ride. I’ve loved hearing your stories and continuing down the road of becoming together. Thank you for every ounce of love and support you’ve shared so generously. #IAmBecoming
In addition to that, the last two years have been great for the America’s Forever First Lady also. Her 1st book, “Becoming,” sold more copies than any other book released in 2018 and spurred a tour that did arenas across the United States. The audiobook version has even been nominated for a 2020 Grammy.
Her popularity expands beyond fans of her books, with Michelle Obama also being crowned “Most Admired Woman” in a 2019 Gallup poll. While her husband tied with the current President for the title of “Most Admired Man,” she came out on top – beating current First Lady Melania Trump by 5% with her double-digit number of 10%.
Now that the Obamas are stars in their own rights, their production company Higher Ground will be releasing more projects that highlight a range of issues like race, class, democracy and civil rights. “American Factory” having already garnered an Oscar nomination is proof that they will continue to be a force in America’s largest exports – culture and entertainment.
Happy birthday, Michelle Obama!
