The Obamas celebrate 30th anniversary

Barack and Michelle Obama are celebrating their 30th anniversary today, October 3 

The 44th American president, 61, wrote on Instagram, including a photo of the pair.

He wrote in his caption: “Miche, After 30 years, I’m not sure why you look exactly the same and I don’t. I do know that I won the lottery that day—that I couldn’t have asked for a better life partner. Happy anniversary, sweetheart!” engraved in a heart in the sand, and a black-and-white wedding photo.

Mrs Obama, 58, also celebrated their anniversary on Twitter, writing: “Happy anniversary to the man I love! These last 30 years have been an adventure, and I’m grateful to have you by my side. Here’s to a lifetime together. I love you @BarackObama,” along with heart emojis. 

She also included side-by-side photos of them during a beach day and on their wedding day.

The Obamas tied the knot in 1992 after three years of dating.

The pair first met in Chicago when Barack was assigned to be mentored by Michelle during a summer internship at a law firm.
