Who Is Malia Obama Dating Now? Dawit Eklund Relationship, Boyfriend rumors

As a former First Daughter, there was interest in who Malia Obama is now dating and what she’s been up to since her family left the White House.

Malia — the eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama — was last linked with her Harvard University classmate Rory Farquharson, whom she began dating in 2017 and from whom she has separated in recent years. Now there seems to be a new man in Malia’s life. In photos obtained by Page Six, Malia, 24, was seen on what appeared to be a date with music producer Dawit Eklund, 33, in Los Angeles. The two were photographed at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art on August 4, 2022, where Malia was seen in a white crop top and loose-fitting green pants, while Dawit wore a beige T-shirt and green shorts with a photo of Bob. . Marley on the left leg. The two were also photographed hugging, with Dawit’s hand on Malia’s waist as she stroked his neck.

Dawit is the co-founder of the record label 1432 R in Washington DC, where Malia lived from January 2009 to January 2017 when her father was President of the United States. The Daily Mail also reports that Dawit’s father is retired State Department officer Jon Eklund, who worked at multiple US embassies in Africa. His mother, Yeshi Eklund, is from Ethiopia. According to The Daily Mail, Malia and Dawit’s recent outing would be their third public date after having lunch together on July 26, 2022 and taking a stroll through Los Angeles on August 2, 2022.

Along with Malia, Barack and Michelle also share daughter Sasha, who is in a relationship with Clifton Power Jr., the son of actor Clifton Powell. Michelle confirmed the relationship in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2022. “They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they bring grown men home,” she said of her daughters at the time. “It used to be just pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”

In an interview on the podcast “The Bill Simmons” in 2020, Barack shared what it was like going into quarantine with Malia and her most recent boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. ‘He’s British. Great young man, and he was kind of stuck because there was a whole visa thing and he set up a job,” he said. “So we took him in and I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good boy. The only thing you discover. . . young men eat! It’s weird to watch them consume food. My grocery bill went up about 30 percent.”

He also discussed what the family was doing in quarantine. “As I think about a lot of families, we went through that first month where we played games every night and did some craft projects and slowly they got a little bored with us,” he said. Barack also told InStyle in November 2020 how “badass” Malia has become. “Malia, she’s just cheerful. She’s someone who loves people, loves life and conversations,” he said at the time. “She’s never bored, which is a poor quality that you can take anywhere.”
