Malia Obama has been photographed hanging out with music producer Dawit Eklund in Los Angeles.
The 24-year-old daughter of former President Barack Obama and the indie label head, 33, were spotted paying a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Thursday in photos obtained by The Daily Mail.
The former first daughter kept things casual in a white crop top and loose-fitting green pants while Eklund wore a nude colored T-shirt and green shorts with a photo of Bob Marley on the left leg.
While the pair weren’t seen locking lips, Obama and the producer did hug one another in the snaps, with Eklund’s hand resting on Obama’s waist as she caressed the back of his neck.
Eklund co-founded record label 1432 R alongside Joyce Lim and Sami Yenigun in Washington D.C. — Malia’s old stomping grounds.
The Daily Mail reports that this is the third public outing for the potential couple, as they were snapped picking up lunch together on July 26 and then again during a casual stroll together on Aug. 2.
The site also reports that Eklund’s father is retired State Department officer Jon Eklund who worked at several US embassies in Africa. His mother, Yeshi Eklund, is from Ethiopia.
Malia was last attached to Rory Farquharson, a Harvard schoolmate whom she began dating in 2017.
She recently also spent time with her younger sister, Malia’s, boyfriend, Clifton Powell Jr., with mom Michelle confirming their coupledom during an April appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
