Our All-Time Favorite Pictures of Barack & Michelle Obama

As Michelle Obama celebrates her 59th birthday, we’re looking back to October 1992, when her and tied the knot — and though we didn’t know it at the time, began one of the sweetest and most #RelationshipGoals marriages the country has ever seen. Sure, they occasionally bicker and have disagreements (which they are totally honest and open about), but their union has pretty much been totally free of scandal and drama. And we have the sweetest Barack and Michelle Obama pictures to prove it.

These two are so supportive of each other’s goals, so into parenting, so totally into each other — still, after all these years — we can hardly take all the cuteness. And on top of it all, they are way too photogenic at the same time.

Since they’ve been gone from the White House we’ve had fewer opportunities to see them interact and lead together. Even though they still have each other, we need them too. Let’s take a walk down memory lane with some of their best moments as a couple caught on film.

In celebration of his wife’s milestone birthday, Barack posted this romantic shot of the two of them on Twitter. Hugging as they watch the breathtaking view together, these two could not be any more cuter!

What do the Obamas do when they have five minutes to get silly in a photo booth? They whip out these classic poses and share it with the public like the Good Samaritans they always have been.

A Kiss of Solidarity on Barack’s Last Day as Acting President

This had to have been a moment of so many emotions. Taken at the White House on Jan. 20, 2017, it was the last day the Obamas were president and first lady as well as the first day Donald Trump would be in office. Still, they are steadfast and steady as they hold hands and share a kiss.
