29 romantic photos of Barack and Michelle Obama

Barack michelle obama fist bump

As Barack and Michelle Obama wind down their time in The White House, it’s a good time to take a look at their relationship.

Obama mentions his wife in almost every speech he gives, and often showers her with PDA, even when the cameras are rolling.

Married since 1992, Barack and Michelle Obama have captured our hearts with their love for one another. In February, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” played a recorded Valentine’s Day message from the president to his wife.

“I ObamaCare about you more than you even know,” he said.

To celebrate the Obamas, we have collected a few of our favourite photos of their most romantic moments.
