Former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary today. To make this day special, Barack Obama posted a heartful message to his wife in a form of video which was played to Michelle as she addressed the Pennsylvania Conference for Women yesterday.
In the video message which was reported by People, Obama said: “I had to crash this party because today we have been married for 25 years. The idea that you would put up with me for a quarter of a century is a remarkable testament to what a saintly, wonderful, patient person you are.”
“It was a lot easier for me to do it, because the fact of the matter is that not only have you been an extraordinary partner, not only have you been a great friend, somebody who could always make me laugh, somebody who would always make sure that I was following what I thought was right, but you have also been an example to our daughters and to the entire country.”
He added: “And it is truly the best decision that I ever made to be persistent enough asking you out for a date that you finally gave in, and I hope that you feel the same way.”
Earlier, Michelle shared a photo from their Chicago wedding on Instagram and captioned it, “Happy 25th-anniversary @barackobama,” she wrote alongside the shot. “A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I (heart) you.”
