The former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, joined others all over the world to wish her husband a happy Father’s day.
She shared a throw back photo of Barack Obama cradling their daughters and wrote;
“Happy #FathersDay @BarackObama. Our daughters may be older and taller now, but they’ll always be your little girls. We love you.”
To which he replied;
“Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be Sasha and Malia’s dad. To all those lucky enough to be a dad, Happy Father’s Day!”
Michelle met Barack Obama when they were among the few African Americans at their law firm, Sidley Austin LLP (she has sometimes said only two, although others have pointed out there were others in different departments), and she was assigned to mentor him while he was a summer associate. Their relationship started with a business lunch and then a community organization meeting where he first impressed her.
Before meeting Obama, Michelle had told her mother she would focus solely on her career. The couple’s first date was to the Spike Lee movie Do the Right Thing Barack Obama has opined that the two had an “opposites attract” scenario in their interest for each other initially since Michelle had stability through her two-parent home while he was “adventurous”.
