She may be the daughter of the 44th president of the United States, but that doesn't mean Malia Obama wants a life in the spotlight. The eldest daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama tends to keep her personal life under wraps, which is why it was so surprising when her dad divulged details about her secret boyfriend. That BF is rumored to be a fellow Harvard student from Britain, and though Malia Obama and Rory Farquharson's relationship timeline is mysterious AF, the rumored romance appears serious to me. Luckily, it seems like Rory (if he is, indeed, Malia's boo) has the former POTUS' approval.
During a December 2020 appearance on Bill Simmons' podcast, Barack opened up about his daughter's boyfriend, who quarantined with the Obamas at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. "He was sort of stuck because there was a whole visa thing," Barack explained. "So we took him in and I didn't want to like him, but he's a good kid." He also deemed Malia's BF a "wonderful young man." If he's good enough for Barack, then he's good enough for me. Here's everything I know about Malia and Rory's covert romance from the beginning.
