Obama shared a series of what appeared to be photo booth pictures of himself cuddling, kissing and joking around with the former first lady.
“In every scene, you are my star,” Obama captioned the four black and white snaps. “Happy birthday, baby!” he added.
Obama marked his wife’s birthday in 2019 with a throwback snap, below.
“I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today ― you’re one of a kind,” he wrote then.

Obama’s latest message was celebrated on Twitter, where people called it “relationship goals” and “so cute.”
