Sometimes simple gestures are the sweetest!
Barack Obama celebrated his wedding anniversary with super adorable messages to his wife, Michelle, on social media on Monday.
The 55-year-old politician posted a cute, candid shot on Facebook, showing the couple giggling while dancing together at the 2009 Nobel Banquet in Oslo, Norway. “Dancing through 24 years. Happy anniversary,” the U.S. commander in chief wrote.
Over on Twitter, POTUS shared a snap of himself giving the first lady a peck on the cheek after the State of Union address in 2010, with the caption, “Side-by-side for 24 years. Here’s to many more. #happyanniversary.”
Celebs were quick to share their well-wishes on social media, including Grey’s Anatomy star Debbie Allen, Scream Queens actress Niecy Nash and singer Usher, who commended the pair’s “beautiful bond.”
The couple met at a Chicago law firm in 1989, after Michelle was appointed Barack’s advisor.
They spent their first date visiting the Art Institute and watching Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, and have been inseparable ever since. “We clicked right away...by the end of the date it was over...I was sold,” Michelle once said.
Since then, their romantic moments have continued to inspire #relationship goals, like when Michelle was snapped wiping lipstick off her husband’s cheek after kissing him during the National Prayer Breakfast in 2010, or that time they were caught on the KissCam at a basketball game during the 2012 Olympics.
And let’s not forget the time the pair exchanged love poems on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
“Roses are red, violets are blue, you are the president and I am your boo,” Michelle, 52, hilariously recited on the talk show.
POTUS’ response? “I Obamacare about you more than you even know!”
The two have also proved they share a fun sense of humor when it comes to their relationship. See Michelle impersonate Barack at the dinner table in the video below.
