Michelle Obama is feeling the love on her birthday! The former first lady turned 57 on Sunday, and her adoring husband, former President Barack Obama, celebrated the occasion with a heartfelt tribute.
Barack took to social media on Sunday, and posted a super sweet throwback photo alongside a message celebrating how much she means to him.
“Happy birthday to my love, my partner, and my best friend,” Barack, 59, wrote alongside the pic. “Every moment with you is a blessing. Love you, Miche.”
The iconic couple tied the knot in October 1992, and they share two children — 22-year-old Malia and 19-year-old Sasha.

Several of Michelle’s famous friends, fans and former political colleagues also celebrated her birthday with tributes and kind words.
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris posted a photo of herself and the former first lady standing side-by-side, and shared, “Happy birthday, @MichelleObama. Thank you for pouring every ounce of yourself into empowering the next generation of leaders. Our country, and myself, are better off because of you.”
