Michelle Obama calls Barack a wonderful husband and father on his 60th birthday


Michelle Obama took to Instagram to celebrate her husband Barack Obama on his 60th birthday.

She shared a photo of the couple and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, along with a caption thanking the former President for being “a wonderful father and husband.”

The former US First Lady said that Barack Obama is a “present, loving father” to their girls and that tops all his achievements.

She then thanked him for “never letting the weight of the world get in the way of being a wonderful husband and father.”

Other people also took to Twitter to celebrate the former president on his birthday, with current White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki writing, “I guess my former boss @BarackObama turning 60, means I have to accept I am older than 28 at this point (the age I was when I started working for him) Happy Birthday @BarackObama. Thanks for everything you have done to make this country better.”




House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shared a photo of she and Mr. Obama, along with the simple caption: “Wishing a very Happy 60th Birthday to President @BarackObama!”

Barack Obama is scaling back the big bash planned for his 60th birthday because of concerns about the national rise in Covid-19 cases, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

“Due to the new spread of the Delta variant over the past week, the president and Mrs Obama have decided to significantly scale back the event to include only family and close friends,” Hannah Hankins, a spokesperson for the former president, said in a statement.

“He’s appreciative of others sending their birthday wishes from afar and looks forward to seeing people soon.”

About 700 people, including Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney, were expected to gather this weekend at the former president’s mansion on Martha’s Vineyard, an island in Massachusetts.

David Axelrod, a former top Obama adviser, told the New York Times that guests were asked if they were vaccinated and to provide the results of a Covid-19 test close to the event.
