Barack Obama and Michelle celebrate 20 years of marriage

Barack and Michelle celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary with a cheesey, but very sweet, video

Barack Obama may have the small matter of an election campaign on his hands but that doesn’t mean that he can’t find time for a little romance with his righthand woman, Michelle Obama.

The President and his First Lady celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary yesterday and, although Barack had to prepare for the US presidential debate, he still remembered to thank his wife for a great two decades of marriage.

Writing on his official Twitter, he posted a lovely photo of the couple on their wedding day, along with the words: ‘Twenty years ago today, I married the love of my life and my best friend. Happy anniversary, Michelle.’

To which Michellereplied: ‘Happy 20th anniversary, Barack. Thank you for being an incredible partner, friend, and father every day. I love you!’

As well as that a rather schmaltzy montage video of the couple’s best bits was posted on Michelle‘s Twitter page. It was undeniably cheesy but effective, and the President needs to use all manner of tactics this close to the November election.

Speaking in an as yet unpublished interview with Oprah Winfrey (it will feature in O Magazine next week), Barack Obama revealed just how important his family have been to him during his time in the White House.

He said: ‘When you’re under all of these pressures, to come home every single night… and have Michelle and the girls there… they are my balance and keep me grounded, and that’s truer now than it’s ever been.’
