Former US President Barack Obama practically brought the house down at Michelle Obama's book show in Washington.

The former First lady is touring the country promoting her memoir, Becoming, and participated in a conversation on Saturday night moderated by her long-time friend and former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

When the conversation shifted towards Michelle's feelings about her husband, Jarrett announced a 'special guest' and Obama came on stage carrying a bouquet of pink roses for his wife.

The crowd at Capital One Arena leapt to its feet.

Jarrett asked him what about Michelle captured his heart when they met at a Chicago law firm where she was his mentor. He said she was 'one of a kind,' strong and honest, and someone he knew he could always count on.

He also said he knew that if she was the mother of his children, their offspring would be 'extraordinary.'
