Despite being on opposite sides, the duo have a shared sense of humor which started the friendship in the first place.

Bush and Mrs. Obama are usually seen seating next to each other during official events such as the opening of the museum.

He told People, "She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like. I needle her a little bit and around her, I’m fairly lighthearted. (The Obamas) are around serious people all the time and we just took to each other."

Both of them have a soft spot for giving aid to the U.S. veterans. Bush launched a new book called, "Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors," and the earnings will be donated to the veterans.

Obama, on the other hand, spearheaded the Joining Forces intiative to help the service members together with Dr. Jill Biden.

Bush was asked if he also has the same relationship with former President Barack Obama.

He jokingly told Ellen, "Let's put it this way, he's never given me a hug that way.''
