Johannesburg - Former President and First Lady of the United States, Barack and Michelle Obama, recently shared tribute tweets to each other in celebration of their 26th wedding anniversary.

The iconic duo took to Twitter and penned sweet messages to each other in honour of their wedding day, reminding us once again why they’re such an admired power couple.

“Happy Anniversary, @MichelleObama. For 26 years, you’ve been an extraordinary partner, someone who can always make me laugh, and my favorite person to see the world with,” Barack captioned a tweet with a snap of Michelle looking out a plane window.


In response to her hubby’s sweet words Michelle thanked him for his love, trust as well as respect over the past 26 years and, “for being a man who always lifts up and honours me and our wonderful girls.”


The admirable couple who recently officiated a wedding in Chicago, met in 1989 while both working at the Sidley Austin law firm in Chicago, according to Business Insider.

This is not the first time the duo have left us swooning over their PDA, earlier this year the former first lady, who was spotted at the Beyoncé and Jay-Z concert, shared a snap from their wedding night,

“You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October 1992 with a nasty head cold,” the American Grown author captioned the snap recalling the memorable day.

“…I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.”
