65 Intimate Photos Of Barack & Michelle Obama’s Love That Will Make You Feel Weak In The Knees
In case you didn't know, Michelle Obama is celebrating her 53rd birthday today. She's been a pretty incredible First Lady, and the thought of her leaving the White House in just 2 days is not sitting well at all. Since I couldn't throw her a real party, I decided to honor her by rounding up a few old photos of her and the President over the years, and what I found was an absolutely adorable love story.
Stolen kisses, warm embraces, and funny faces are everyday behavior and the key to a long-lasting relationship for this power couple. Barack and Michelle Obama have been best friends since their first movie date on the Southside of Chicago in 1989, and they're not afraid to let the world know. Not only is their affection for each other amazingly heartwarming, but it's also a shining example of a true love that has survived 27 years of monumental ups and downs.
Michelle was a champion of support during both of her husband's presidential campaigns, has openly supported marriage equality, and frequently travels to foreign countries to empower children living in poverty. She somehow also finds time to raise 2 beautiful daughters. Did I mention she's actually superwoman?
Cheers to a wonderful outgoing First Lady on her special day, and to the Obama family for their courage and leadership. We'll miss you, Michelle!

Sam Spade - you seem to be perseverating about Michelle's pregnancies. Some people are private about these things. In addition, these are only 30 pictures out of a 25-year marriage. There's something kind of creepy about your obsession with this. Take a look at Malia and tell me that is not her daughter. I suggest you consider not saying anything if you cannot say something nice about these personal photographs. Just Google "pictures of Michelle Obama Pregnant" and I bet you can get your itch scratched. Nobody cares except you.
