From sharing nostalgic snaps to announcing a new addition to the family, celebrities around the world were an active bunch on social media during Valentine's Day.

And if you celebrated Valentine's Day all by yourself, chances are some of these greetings would have cheered you up.

Here are eight of them.

1. Michelle Obama's back on Twitter


In her first tweet since stepping down as First Lady, Michelle Obama chose to pay tribute to her husband and former US president Barack Obama.

"Happy Valentine's Day to the love of my life and favourite island mate," she wrote. It was accompanied by a vacation photo of two pairs of feet (presumably the famous couple's) in the sand.


2. Jamie Oliver dishes out the nostalgia

The British chef, who married his long-term love Juliette Norton in 2000, dug through his archives to produce a throwback photo of the pair celebrating their first Valentine's Day in 1996.

"Happy Valentines my darling @joolsoliver. Hope you liked your homemade card!" he wrote in an Instagram post.

Rocking that retro hairstyle btw, Jamie.

3. Love - from the sick bed

Getting the sniffles was no excuse for Madonna not to send a V-Day greeting, and she duly obliged with a little ditty.

Looking a little worse for wear, the Queen of Pop crawled out of her sick bed to sing, and wrote on Instagram: "Sick girl in bed in her nightgown. Not sung well but done with love!"

Get well soon!

4. Sweet sunset, Kim

In a reminder to the world that their love still holds strong, reality star Kim Kardashian posted a sweet photo of her sharing a kiss with husband and rapper Kanye West at sunset.

"Happy Valentine's Day," said the simple caption.

Nothing flashy, but oh so heartfelt.

5. Kenny G, god of sax

Saxophonist Kenny G, squeezing in as many puns as he could muster, crafted some special V-Day greeting cards on Twitter for his fans.

Among the gems: "I think ur saxy" and "let's practice safe sax".

6. Looking good in that dress, Liam


Singer Miley Cyrus thought it would be funny to see how her fiancee, Liam Hemsworth, would look in a dress.

So she photoshopped his face onto a heart-printed red dress she wore to the amfAR Inspiration Gala in June 2015.

"@liamhemsworth and I wish you a VERY loveyyyyy V-Day," she posted on Instagram, which was followed by several idyllic photos of the couple on a romantic beach holiday.

7. A very proud mum

It's not all your other half on Valentine's Day - children are perfectly entitled to join in and spread the love too.

Just look at the adorable homemade cards Victoria Beckham received from her five-year-old daughter, Harper.

Too cute.

8. It's a boy!

Baby No. 2 is well on the way for Mandopop star Jay Chou and his wife Hannah Quinlivan.

Chou shared a photo of the couple on a boat, with Quinlivan in a bikini and sporting an obvious baby bump.

In a play on Taiwanese parlance in which daughters are described as their fathers' lovers from their past lives, he wrote: "Valentine's Day, time for mummy's lover from her previous life to come along."
