The message marked yet another one of the former first lady's succinct, yet heartfelt birthday greetings to her husband on social media, as she took a similar route past year when Barack Obama turned 56. As noted by the sfgate.com, during his time in office, he signed many landmark bills into law, including the Affordable Care Act.

Barack Obama is feeling the love on his 57th birthday! He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.
