Lena Dunham and boyfriend Jack Antonoff spent Independence Day with the Obamas…and a whole lot of other people invited to a holiday celebration on the White House lawn.

It wasn’t all play and no work for Antonoff, who performed at the party with his band, Fun. Dunham, in blue shirt, red purse and white sunglasses, was there to provide moral support and soak up the atmosphere.

From the cute photo of the couple hugging the “Girls” creator posted on Instagram, it looks like she and her boyfriend were enjoying themselves. “Happy 4th of July, from our family to yours!” read the caption. The couple was also spotted by the paparazzi as they strolled hand-in-hand in the nation’s capital over the holiday weekend.

Dunham showed her appreciation for President Obama’s older daughter, Malia, who celebrated her 15th birthday at the party. “Happy Birthday Malia Obama! Let’s all hope we’re as elegant as you when we grow up,” the HBO star tweeted.
