Malia Obama Was Just Seen With a 33-Year-Old Producer After Her Split With Her College Boyfriend

As a former first daughter, there's been interest in who Malia Obama is dating now 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 to her Harvard classmate Rory Farquharson, who she began dating in 2017 and who she has broken up with in recent years years apart. Now there seems to be a new man in Malia's life. Photos released by Page Six saw Malia, 24, on what appears 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 resting on Malia's waist as she stroked his neck.

Along with Malia, Barack and Michelle also share daughter Sasha, who is dating Clifton Power Jr., 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're bringing grown men home," she said of her daughters at the time. “Before, it was just pop bands. Now they have friends and a real life.”
In an interview on The Bill Simmons podcast in 2020, Barack opened up about what it was like going into quarantine with Malia and her recent boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. "He's British. Wonderful young man, and he was kind of stuck because there was a whole visa thing and he had a job set up," 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 strange to watch them eat. My grocery bill is up about 30 percent.”
He also spoke about what the family was doing during the quarantine. "I think a lot of families we went through that first month where we played games every night and did a few arts and crafts projects and then they started to get bored with us," he said. Barack also told InStyle in November 2020 about how "badass" Malia has become. "Malia, she's just cheerful. She's someone who likes people, enjoys life and likes to have conversations," he said at the time. "She never gets bored, which is a badass trait that can get you places."
