Former President Barack Obama’s 24-year-old daughter and 33-year-old indie label chief were seen in photographs Thursday while visiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Retrieved by Daily Mail.
The former first daughter kept things casual in a white crop top and loose-fitting green pants, while Eklund wore a nude T-shirt and green shorts with a picture of Bob Marley on the left leg.
While the pair weren’t seen locking lips, Obama and the producer hugged each other in snaps, Eklund’s hands resting on Obama’s waist as he stroked the back of his neck.
Eklund co-founded Record Label 1432 R With Joyce Lim and Sami Yenigun in Washington DC – Malia’s old stomping ground.
The Daily Mail reports that this is the third public outing for the potential couple, as they were caught having lunch together on July 26 and then on a casual walk together on August 2.
The site also states that Eklund’s father is retired State Department official John Eklund who worked at several US embassies in Africa. His mother Yeshi Eklund is from Ethiopia.
Malia was last linked to Rory Farquharson, a Harvard classmate whom she began dating in 2017.
