If you were ever wondering how former President Barack Obama got our forever First Lady Michelle Obama to say yes, it’s a pretty interesting story. Barack definitely has a sense of humor!

Michelle sat with Stephen Colbert over at The Late Show to promote her new book Becoming. During the interview, she spoke about the time Barack proposed to her. 

She thought she was going to a celebration dinner for Barack passing the bar. The evening took a weird turn when he “picked an argument” about marriage. To Michelle’s surprise, he had this all planned out and ended up proposing when the dessert came out.
