Michelle Obama’s new memoir, Becoming, comes out on November 13th, and it reportedly reveals never-before-shared details about the former first lady’s life—from her childhood in Chicago all the way to her time in the White House and beyond. Becoming also features details about the Obamas’ love story and marriage…a detail of which apparently cracked our favorite human, Oprah Winfrey, up.

Oprah interviewed Obama about the book for Elle, and she called out one specific detail that the former FLOTUS divulged about her husband. The passage begins with Obama recalling a night when she woke up to see her husband “staring at the ceiling.”

Michelle Obama’s response to the anecdote? “That’s my honey.”

We would expect nothing less from a future president.

Of course, like any marriage, the Obamas’ isn’t perfect, and she revealed that they’ve undergone marriage counseling to work through their issues.

The former first lady added that counseling helped her explore “my own sense of happiness” and enabled her to ask for support.

We can’t wait to read the rest of Becoming when it hits shelves.
