A woman recently sent a wedding invitation to the former US president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, and she received a congratulatory card signed by both of them.
Liz Whitlow, from Texas, invited the Obamas to her daughter Brooke Allen’s wedding in March and received the response on July 31.
“Congratulations on your wedding. We hope that your marriage is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness and that your bond grows stronger with each passing year. This occasion marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership, and as you embark on this journey, know you have our very best for the many joys and adventures that lie ahead,” their letter read.
When Allen found out about Obamas’ message, she took to Twitter to share her excitement.
“MY MOM DEADASS SENT THE OBAMAS A WEDDING INVITATION BACK IN MARCH AND JUST RECEIVED THIS IN THE MAIL. IM HOLLERING,” she wrote.

Her tweet immediately caught the attention of the fans of the former first couple and received more than 45,000 retweets and 200,000 likes within a few days.
Allen even shared a screenshot of her conversation with her mother where she says she didn’t invite the current President Donald Trump.
Many came forward to share the letters they received from the Obamas.
