Yesterday, the previous president surprised his dear wife, Michelle Obama at her book tour stop in Washington D.C. where she promoted her memoir, titled Becoming. Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama’s former senior adviser at the White House, was interviewing the ex FLOTUS.
But suddenly, during the event, the audience started cheering when they realized Barack had walked onstage unannounced but with a beautiful bouquet of flowers in his grasp. How sweet!
Barack made sure to give Valerie a hug before the married couple also embraced.
He decided to stay at the side of Michelle for a bit longer, much to the excitement of everyone present.
CNN reported that Barack compared himself and Michelle to another very famous pair and close pals of theirs – Beyonce and Jay Z!
‘This is like – you know when Jay Z comes out during the Beyoncé concert? … Like, Crazy in Love? It’s the same thing. It is just a little sample to enhance the concert,’ Obama mentioned.
As you may remember, back in 2009, Beyonce also performed at the presidential couple’s inaugural ball.
To mark her husband’s big surprise at her book event, Michelle took to Insta Stories to share pics and videos of Barack showing up and also twirling her around romantically. Aww….
The former FLOTUS has been very open about her and Barack’s romance lately, especially since the memoir was officially published last week.
She even got candid about more personal and delicate topics, such as the fact that she suffered a miscarriage and that in order to conceive their daughters Sasha, 17 and Malia, 20, she needed to undergo IVF.
During an interview with Robin Roberts, Michelle revealed that ‘I felt lost and alone and I felt like I failed because I did not know how common miscarriages were because we do not talk about them.’
