Rebecca, the beautiful wife of President Nana Akufo-Addo, is celebrating her birthday today, March 12, 2020.
Born in 1951, Auntie Becky, as she is affectionately called, is 69 years old and has received many well-wishes from important personalities.
The latest important birthday message to come for Mrs Akufo-Addo is one from her daughter, Valerie Oba.
In a post on Instagram, Valerie posted an interesting throwback photo of herself as a baby with her mother.
The photo sighted by YEN.com.gh shows a younger Mrs Akufo-Addo holding her baby girl at a time she must have been breastfeeding the baby.
Sharing the photo, Valerie described her mother as "My first and forever love, Happy Birthday Mama!!"
After the post, many of Valerie's followers joined her in wishing the First Lady a happy birthday.
@therealjohnosa said: "A mother's love is incomparable. In her womb you had your first breath, first meal, first sleep, first this and first that. I can understand when you say she is your first love. When my mum passed two years at 86, Benin was never the same again for me because she was the only parent I had from the start. Celebrate your mum and bless her with the best you can. It's not too much... she is worth it."
@lolamaja said: Happy Birthday Mummy!!! ❤️❤️❤️
@rimachouen prayed for long life for the First Lady: "May God give you a long happy healthy life. We love you mama Bex ❤️"
@edjeart saw the photo as priceless moment: "Melting Moments. Priceless.❤️."
Meanwhile, the biggest birthday message for Mrs Akufo-Addo has come from her husband.
Just like her daughter, President Akufo-Addo celebrated his wife with a beautiful photo and sweet message on social media.
