Michelle Obama celebrated husband former President Barack Obama’s 59 birthday on Tuesday with a cute, throwback family photo on Instagram.

She wrote, “Happy birthday to my favorite guy. Here’s to all the good days, blue skies, and new adventures to come” and followed her message with a kissing emoji.

Other celebrities and public figures including actress Mia Farrow, actor Kevin Johnson and former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg joined Michelle in saying, “Happy Birthday” to the former president.

The Obamas appeared together on Michelle’s new Spotify podcast, The Michelle Obama Podcast, on Wednesday. The former president was the first guest on the podcast and talked about his hopes for his daughters’ futures.

“More than anything, what it would be is that they’re living in a country that respects everybody and looks after everybody, celebrates and sees everybody,” he said. “Because we know that if we’re not around, but those girls are in a society like that, they’ll be fine.”

Michelle then chipped in and said, “The only thing that worries me… I hear I think too many young people who question whether voting, whether politics is worth it.”

Her husband then continued by saying, “The danger for this generation is that they become too deeply cynical in government. Not understanding that all government is us, collectively, making decisions together.”
