The beloved former first couple has celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary.

Barack and Michelle Obama visited the beaches at an undisclosed location, where they inscribed the words “Barack + Michelle” in the sand that was encased in a heart.


The 44th president captioned his carousel of photos with the words, “Miche, After 30 years, I’m not sure why you look exactly the same and I don’t. … Happy anniversary, sweetheart!”
