Former President Obama’s youngest daughter Sasha spotted in public with new boyfriend

Former President Barack Obama’s daughters have now grown to become adults living their own lives, and that includes forging their own relationships with others who may or may not always meet the approval of their parents.

It was recently revealed that Obama’s youngest daughter, 20-year-old Sasha, has a 24-year-old boyfriend named Clifton Powell Jr., Geo News reported.

It remains a mystery at this point what, exactly, the former president thinks of his daughter’s new beau, but the relationship had been hinted at without any sense of disapproval by former first lady Michelle Obama during a recent interview.

The mystery man in question

The New York Post’s Page Six reported that the young couple were photographed while walking together in public this week and were said to have first met and started dating at some point in 2021.

Powell Jr. is the son of Hollywood actor Clifton Powell Sr. and his wife Kimberly and attended prestigious private schools while being raised in a wealthy area of Los Angeles, California.

The young man was a star basketball player in high school and earned a full scholarship to play that sport at the University of California at Santa Barbara, but had dropped out after one year to instead pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

In fact, Powell Jr. appears to have already established himself in the business as a commercial director and, according to his own website, already boasts a stellar lineup of clients that includes major corporate entities like the NBA and NFL, Nike, Pepsi, Peloton, and others.

Michelle Obama hinted her approval of new boyfriend

As noted, former first lady Obama had alluded to her daughter’s new interest during an appearance last week on “The Ellen Show” with host Ellen DeGeneres — Obama’s first TV appearance in front of a live audience since the pandemic began in early 2020.

She spoke about her two daughters, Sasha and Malia, had returned home for some time during the pandemic but had since gone back out on their own now that they are fully grown adults.

DeGeneres recalled that both young women had still been children when she had first met them in 2008 on the show when Obama had taken them to see the Jonas Brothers perform.

“They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home,” Obama said. “Before it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”

It remains to be seen what, if anything, former President Obama will have to say publicly about his youngest daughter’s boyfriend, or even if that relationship will last long enough to necessitate him even addressing the situation.
