It’s been a good week for the Obamas
It was a busy week for Michelle and Barack Obama—but in the very best way.
The former POTUS/FLOTUS power couple officially announced a multi-year production deal with Netflix, which will have them producing TV shows and movies for the streaming service. According to Netflix, the Obamas will work on a wide range of content, including scripted series and feature-length docs. (Are they accepting interns? Asking for a friend.)
Thennnnnnnn, after confirming that she will be releasing a memoir earlier this year, Michelle Obama debuted the cover of her book, Becoming. The bio, which she says has been “so personally meaningful and illuminating” to write, is slated to drop on November 13.
I’m thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING. The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own. #BECOMING
And on a more personal note, the couple also celebrated a huge milestone this week: their 25th anniversary! They were married on May 24 in 1992. Michelle Obama took to Insta to celebrate the day, writing: “Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals.”
You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.
