President Barack Obama went all out to shower compliments on hi lovely wife, Michelle Obama in his farewell speech.

The outgoing U.S. president while fighting back tears credited his wife for making the White House “a place that belongs to everybody” during their eight years as occupants.

Obama then went on to praise the outgoing First Lady for being more than his wife and mother of his two daughters, but also his ‘best friend’.

Michelle who was clearly emotional during the speech took to twitter thereafter to react to her husband’s speech.

“So proud of @potus and all that we’ve accomplished together,” the tweet reads. “An incredible journey filled with remarkable people. I love you Barack. –MO.”

The sweet message was accompanied by a photo of the family taken on the day Obama won the presidency in 2008.
