Happy birthday, Michelle Obama!
The former first lady turned 55 years old on Thursday, and both her husband, Barack Obama, and her good friend, Beyonce, took to social media to honor her. The former president shared a sweet throwback of the two, the couple all smiles as he puts his arm around her.
"I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today -- you’re one of a kind, @MichelleObama," he wrote. "Happy Birthday!"
Beyonce and husband JAY-Z have been close friends with Michelle and Barack for years. Bey memorably sang Etta James' "At Last" for the Obamas' first dance at his 2009 inauguration ball, and the foursome's relationship has only strengthened since then. Last July, the Obamas showed off their dance moves when they attended Beyonce and JAY-Z’s concert at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
