Barack Obama shares adorable birthday message to Michelle — ‘You are my star’
America’s most admired woman has a devoted, not-so-secret admirer.
Former President Barack Obama shared a touching message and a series of adorable photos to celebrate his wife’s 56th birthday on Friday.
“In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama! Happy birthday, baby!” he wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
The post features a collage of four goofy, photobooth-style pictures of the couple, who have been married since 1992.
Her birthday comes just days after a Netflix documentary released by the Obamas’ newly launched production company, Higher Ground, earned an Oscar nomination.
The film, “American Factory,” follows a Chinese entrepreneur billionaire who opens a new auto-glass factory in an abandoned General Motors plant and hires 2,000 blue-collar workers.
Shortly after Monday’s announcement, Michelle Obama congratulated filmmakers Julia Reichert, Jeff Reichert and Steven Bognar on Instagram.
“What Julia and Steve capture on film is at times painful, at times exhilarating, but always thoughtful and always real — exactly the kind of story Barack and I wanted to lift up with Higher Ground Productions,” she wrote.
