In light of her previous status as First Daughter, Malia Obama has been the subject of much interest and speculation since her family left the White House.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s eldest daughter, Malia, briefly dated in 2017 with her Harvard University classmate, Rory Farquharson, but split up eventually.

Apparently, Malia has a new man in her life. Malia was photographed in Los Angeles with music producer Dawit Eklund, who appeared to be on a date. A picture also shows the two hugging, with Dawit’s hand resting on Malia’s waist while she caressed his neck.

While her father was president of the United States, Dawit co-founded the record label 1432 R in Washington D.C., where Malia lived from January 2009 to January 2017. Jon Eklund, a retired State Department officer who worked at several U.S. embassies in Africa, is reported to be Dawit’s father. He was raised by his Ethiopian mother, Yeshi Eklund.

Their latest outing marks their third public date after they ate lunch together on July 26, 2022, and walked around Los Angeles on August 2, 2022.

Additionally, Barack and Michelle have a daughter named Sasha, who is dating Clifton Power Jr., the son of actor Clifton Powell. The relationship was confirmed by Michelle in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on April 20, 2022.

Michelle jokingly revealed, “They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home. Before, it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”
