Sasha Obama, the daughter of former U.S. President Barack Obama is reported to be dating a former college basketball player and commercial writer/director Clifton Powell Jr. after her transfer to a college on the West Coast.

The 20-year-old college student and former First Daughter was reportedly spotted with her new beau in photographs looking in love with each other as they took a walk somewhere in California recently, according to Page Six.

Powell, Jr. is the 24-year-old son of Clifton Powell, a working actor known for his roles in films like “Ray” and “Next Friday,” with a variety of other projects in the past and present on television and film, TMZ reported.

His mother, Kimberly Powell, is a businesswoman who runs her own interior design company as well as a successful catering business called Chef Kim. Powell’s sister, meanwhile, runs her own beauty business called Suga Honey Glam Incorporated.

Sasha and Powell, Jr. met after she moved to the University of Southern California after being a student at the University of Michigan for two years. Powell Jr. had gotten a basketball scholarship to study at the same university, but transferred out to pursue his passion for filmmaking.

He now works as a writer and director of commercials and has worked on marketing projects for companies like Nike and Peleton.

Both the daughters of Barack Obama are reportedly living in Los Angeles currently--Sasha studying at the University of Southern California, while daughter Malia is working on a Donald Glover project as a screenwriter.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has all but confirmed the dating life of Sasha when she guested on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Tuesday.

“They loved the Jonas Brothers. Now they are bringing grown men home,” the 58-year-old former First Lady said. “Before it was just, like, pop bands. Now they have boyfriends and real lives.”
