Barack Obama Acting as Michelle's Instagram Husband is the Best Thing You'll See All Day

It's no secret that former POTUS and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama are the ultimate #CoupleGoals. From cute tweets at one another to Barack's I'm-not-crying-you're-crying message to Michelle during his farewell address, it basically can't get any cuter - or at least we thought, that is, until we witnessed Barack acting as Michelle's Instagram husband.

For the uninitiated, your Instagram husband is your go-to photographer for all of those 'gram-worthy solo shots. You can always trust them to tap-to-focus, get your best angle, and take zillions of photos so you have plenty to choose from. (And let's be honest, for those of us in relationships, the responsiblity more often than not falls on the shoulders of your S.O.)

With that being said, I, along with the rest of the Internet, was absolutely shook when photos surfaced of none other than the former POTUS dutifully fulfilling his Instagram husband duties while the couple was vacationing on a yacht in the South Pacific island of Mo'orea. He can be seen holding up what looks like some form of Apple product while Michelle does her best vacay pose with one hand on the yacht's railing - and if this isn't the best thing I've seen all week, IDK what is.

While the pic hasn't hit Michelle's 'gram yet, we're pretty hopeful - then Barack can officially add "professional Instagram husband," to his already-impressive resume.
