Malia Obama, the daughter of former President Barack Obama, is beloved throughout The United States. Being related to such a public figure can be extremely difficult at times, from the constant publicity to being surrounded by secret service agents 24/7, but Barack Obama’s oldest daughter takes on the responsibility with grace.
At age 20, Malia Obama has some notable accomplishments under her belt: she took a gap year to pursue a film production internship with the Weinstein Company and now attends Harvard University. She is driven and it seems that she is always up to something.
Though Malia Obama’s life is pretty public, there is one question that people have been asking recently: who is she dating? Obama managed to keep her love life out of the limelight while she was in the White House, for there didn’t seem to be any serious relationships during her teenage years. That’s fair enough–she had a lot going on, balancing the obligations of being a president’s daughter and her normal teenage life!
It seems that things have changed in the last few months, though. Malia Obama is single no longer. Let’s take a look at her latest boyfriend.
Rory Farquharson 2017–Present
The press first suspected that something was up with Obama’s love life last November when footage of Malia Obama making out with someone at a Harvard football game was leaked to TMZ. Everyone wanted to know who the mystery man was.
By early 2018, it was confirmed that this guy was more than just someone to smooch; in January, pictures were released of the two of them shopping together in New York City.
It turns out that the boy in question is Rory Farquharson, a fellow Harvard Student. Farquharson enrolled in 2017 and is part of the class of 2020. Obama’s new boyfriend is British and attended a prestigious private school before moving to the United States to pursue his college education. He is currently pre-law and quite ambitious, previously holding an internship with the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building in Northern Ireland.
There is no concern that Farquharson is with Obama for her money because he is well-off himself; his father is the chief executive of Insight Investment Management Limited and his mother is an accomplished accountant. The family lives in a house worth about 1.6 million pounds and Farquharson is related to an aid of Queen Elizabeth II. Fancy!
Malia Obama and Rory Farquharson seem to be enjoying the honeymoon phase of their budding relationship. The two have gone on dates together throughout Europe and the United States; they’ve been seen spending time together in London, they’ve had some PDA in Paris, and they’re together in New York. I can hardly get a guy to buy me coffee, so I’m impressed by their fancy dates. Does Farquharson have any friends that can take me to the Eiffel Tower?
Right now, Obama and Farquharson are in London as Obama enjoys her break from school. They’re super cute and we wish them all the best! It can’t be easy to be in the spotlight, but these two seem to make things work and it seems that they’ll have many more dates to come.
Malia Obama is still with classmate cum boyfriend Rory Farquharson for over a year now; they seem to enjoy their life to the fullest.
