To the girl from the South Side who took on a role she didn't ask for and made it her own: Happy Birthday, Michelle. I love you. pic.twitter.com/lvjfx418hn— President Obama (@POTUS44) January 17, 2017
Since Barack and Michelle Obama have shared plenty of heartwarming moments throughout the years, it should come as no surprise that the president couldn't help but gush about his wife on her 53rd birthday. On Tuesday, Barack posted a cute Twitter snap of him and Michelle riding on the back of a golf cart, which appears to be from his first inauguration night in 2009, writing, "To the girl from the South Side who took on a role she didn't ask for and made it her own: Happy Birthday, Michelle. I love you." Barack's touching tribute comes a week after he delivered his farewell address, in which he called Michelle a "role model" and gave his daughters, Sasha and Malia, a sweet shout-out, saying, "Of all that I have done in my life, I'm most proud to be your dad." It's been a wonderful eight years and we're definitely going to miss these two.
