- Obama was grateful for the support his wife Michelle has given him through the years
- He referred to her as an anchor that kept him firm and strong
- Obama also thanked Michelle for making him a dad and giving him two beautiful treasures
Barack Obama always considers himself successful thanks to his experience as a dad.
If everything else was taken away from him, he would still consider his life an achievement because of his two daughters Sasha and Malia Obama.
The dad went on Instagram to thank his better half Michelle Obama for giving him the best gifts he has ever received in life.
He praised Michelle for gifting him with two wonderful ladies who became his lifeline, his reason and his purpose.
Obama thought his daughters have played an important role in shaping the man he has become over the years.
"Michelle and Patti have also given us the single greatest gift of our lives: the chance to become fathers."
The former US president even shared a TBT photo of himself and the beauties and appreciated how simple yet entertaining life has been thanks to them.
He also noted that Michelle has been the best support system he ever received.
"Bruce and I agree that our most important anchor over the years has been our families. We are both lucky enough to have strong, independent, partners who challenge and ground us—ultimately helping us become better versions of ourselves," Obama wrote.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Obama opened up on how his Kenyan father's absence affected him as he transitioned from a child to a man.
According to the retired leader, he did not really know his father. At least not the way he wished he did.
Obama’s dad left his mum when he was just two years old.
The late scholar visited the former US president once and would occasionally converse with him through letters.
