Former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary Tuesday and Michelle marked the occasion by sharing a photo along with a beautiful caption.
The former first lady took to Twitter and posted a photo from their wedding day with the caption ‘Happy 25 anniversary. A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I (heart emoji) you.’
Michelle was able to beat her husband to the punch, but she may be making up for previous years when she forgot their anniversary all together.
The regularly affectionate Obamas were married on October 3, 1992, at Trinity United Church in Chicago and have two daughters together: Malia, who was born in 1998 and Sasha, born in 2001.
Back in 2012, just before the couple were to celebrate their 20th anniversary, Michelle, 51, revealed during a joint appearance with her husband on The View, that she forgot their first wedding anniversary.
‘Our first wedding anniversary, I totally forgot about it,’ she told the hosts. ‘I totally forgot!’
She added: ‘He asked me, ‘Well, what are we going to do on Saturday?’ And I go, ‘What’s Saturday?’ And it was our anniversary – I forgot.’
‘Cold,’ responded the President, jokingly.
Later in the appearance, however, Michelle gave a glowing review of her husband’s nature, calling him ‘romantic’.
‘He’s very loving, he’s very giving, he’s very open. He’s funny; I’m funnier. But we understand that,’ she joked.
It hasn’t been revealed yet if the couple made any special plans for their silver anniversary but they’ve taken some very meaningful trips this year.
