Former US President Barack Obama has showed that his wife, Michelle, will always be his first lady, sharing a touching message for her 56th birthday.

Mr Obama shared a series of black and white images, appearing to have been taken in a photo booth, to celebrate the day.

“In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama!” he wrote, before adding: “Happy birthday, baby!”

The images went viral after being shared on Twitter and Instagram, with 1.3 million likes within the first hour.

Mr Obama often posts a message online for his wife’s birthday and for Mother’s Day.

Mrs Obama published her best-selling memoir Becoming last year and recently celebrated the fact that their first Netflix documentary, American Factory, had received an Oscar nominations.

“I couldn’t be happier that Julia Reichert, Steven Bognar, and all of the incredible people behind #AmericanFactory have been nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar,” Mrs Obama wrote. “What Julia and Steve capture on film is at times painful, at times exhilarating, but always thoughtful and always real — exactly the kind of story Barack and I wanted to lift up with Higher Ground Productions.
