13 Times Michelle and Barack Obama Were the Definition of (First) #CoupleGoals
The former POTUS and FLOTUS have left the Oval Office, but thanks to their strong and supportive relationship, it's safe to say they'll remain in our hearts forever. The pair has made their mark on both history and marriage, showing Americans everywhere that in both good times (have you seen the fun these two have?) and bad (no White House run is an easy one), love can always prevail. In honor of their endless #couplegoals contributions, we rounded up their cutest, most enviable moments to date.
What is a presidential appearance without Michelle or Barack fawning over one another? For his 55th birthday, Michelle Obama posted this proud snapshot with the caption, "55 years young and that smile still gets me every single day. Happy birthday, Barack. I love you."
See what we mean? That thumbs up is golden.
Guys, they kissed under the mistletoe (in December, 2015) just to make us jealous.
Kensington Palace, You're On
Remember that time the Obamas ruthlessly challenged their friends over the pond to the Invictus games in May 2016? We do.
The pair played the part while reading to children at 2016's White House Easter Egg Roll.
They've got style, they've got class, and they've got a killer couple's dance routine, as evidenced by 2013's Inaugural Ball. Michelle shared the photo on her husband's 54th, writing, "Happy birthday to a loving husband, wonderful father and my favorite dance partner. 54 looks good on you, Barack!"
Here, the pair posed in their respective college swag, but it wasn't to show off. Like the dedicated do-gooders they are, they were promoting Detroit's first-ever College Signing Day in 2016.
This throwback holiday photo proves that they've been joined at the hip from the start.
And this throwback shows they were always hip and cool.
Barack Obama shared this candid for Michelle's 50th birthday, proving they've got a long way to go before growing "old" together!
"I'm lucky to have lived my life surrounded by such remarkable women," wrote Barack in this endearing 2016 split-shot of him and his mom, and him with his family. "To whomever that person is in your life, be sure to say thanks. Say I love you. And let's make sure we show that gratitude and appreciation throughout the year. Because no one deserves thanks more than our moms." Aw!
And last but not least, the glowing couple shared this throwback memorializing the start of their union.
