Barack Obama Wishes Michelle Obama a Happy 56th Birthday

Be Still Our Hearts! Barack Obama Posts Sweet Birthday Note For Michelle: "You Are My Star"

Happy birthday, Michelle Obama! On Jan. 17, the Grammy-nominated Becoming author turned 56 and got some extra love from fans on the 'gram. But none could hold a candle to the tribute from her beau, Barack. The former US president took to the platform to share a collage of snaps that show him and Michelle snuggling up in a photo booth. While two pictures feature the couple sharing a sweet smooch, the others show their playful sides as Barack holds up a peace sign and Michelle makes a silly face. "In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama!" Barack captioned the post. "Happy birthday, baby!"

It's been an exciting time for Michelle. On Jan. 7, she announced her new documentary series, A Year of Firsts, which will follow four first-year college students as they adjust to university life. The six-episode show is set to premiere sometime in January and will run through June. Michelle and Barack's production company, Higher Ground, also just received its first Oscar nomination with the film American Factory earning a nod for best documentary feature. Hopefully, Michelle's taking some time to celebrate her birthday and all of her accomplishments!
