Former U.S President, Barack Obama, is currently melting hearts online after a video of him interrupting a live show just so he could wish his wife, Michelle, a happy anniversary, surfaced on the web.
The former US president surprised his wife in the sweetest way possible as they marked their 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday –
Michelle was in the middle of a chat with television producer, Shonda Rhimes at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia, when Barack crashed the talk with a surprise video.
He appeared on a screen at the conference near the end of a 57-minute talk by Michelle. He apologized to the attendees for having to “crash this party,” before letting his wife know what she means to him.
“Pardon me Shonda Rhymes but I have to crash this party because today, we have been married for twenty-five years.
At this, the crowd cheered and Michelle blushed while Barack continued: “Now, the idea that you would even 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: “Your strength, your grace, your determination, your honesty, the fact that you look so good doing all this, the way in which you’ve always taken responsibility for your own actions but also for looking out for the people around you is remarkable. And it’s no wonder that as people got to know you the way that I got to know you, they fell in love. And It is truly the best decision that I ever made to be persistent enough, asking you out on a date, that you finally gave in. And I hope you feel the same way. So, I don’t want to interrupt the flow of what I’m sure is a fascinating discussion, but I figured that you wouldn’t mind maybe me parachuting in just to say how much I love you and how much I appreciate you.”
His heartwarming video came after Michelle had posted a photo from their 1992 wedding on Instagram with a sweet message for Obama on their anniversary.
Michelle’s message reads:
“Happy 25th anniversary @barackobama. A quarter of a century later, you’re still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I ? you.”
