Barack Obama, 59, told his 32 million followers how his wife, whom he calls “Miche,” has elevated him as a human being and a statesman.

“Even with everything going on, I wanted to take a moment to say happy anniversary to the love of my life. Every day with @MichelleObama makes me a better husband, a better father, and a better human,” he began.
