Happy Valentine's Day from America's first couple!
The Oval Office is decidedly more heart-shaped today as Michelle Obama
posted a Valentine's Day message
to her husband on Instagram.
"Hey Barack, I'll always be your valentine! #HappyValentinesDay," she wrote, next to three photos of herself and the president laughing and embracing.
The president and first lady are famously affectionate with each other year-round. But this year, they're actually not planning anything major for Valentine's Day – mostly because Michelle's 50th birthday celebrations last month were so extensive.
"He celebrated me so well – he did a great job," Michelle told Ryan Seacrest
on his radio show
this week. "I had a great couple of weeks, so I think we're going to low-key it for Valentine's Day. It feels like we just finished celebrating my birthday so I think we'll low-key it."
