Former American President Barack Obama revealed that daughter Malia’s British boyfriend quarantined with the family in the early days of the pandemic. He says their grocery bill shot up 30 percent, most likely because the young man had quite a huge appetite.
In a Wednesday interview this week on “The Bill Simmons Podcast,” Obama, 59, called his 22-year-old daughter’s boyfriend Rory Farquharson a “wonderful young man.”
“There was this whole visa thing, he had a job set up, and so we took him in,” Obama said.
“And I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid.”
Farquharson, the well-to-do son of a London banker, ended up staying with the family “for a while” — and apparently ate quite a lot.
“The only thing you discover… [is] young men eat,” the former president and dad to two daughters said.
“It’s weird to watch them consume food. And my grocery bill went up about 30 percent,” he added with a laugh.
Overall, Obama seemed to look at the quarantine through an optimistic eye. Remembering the unexpected time he was able to spend with his daughters.
The 44th president spoke about the family’s extra guest after the host asked about his most fun moment as a dad during quarantine.
“Maybe teaching Malia and Sasha, and Malia’s boyfriend who was with us for a while, spades and then having some spades games,” he responded.
“And teaching them how to properly trash talk and slam the cards down.”
Farquharson and the former first daughter met while attending Harvard. They were first spotted together in 2017, at a tailgate party at the Harvard-Yale football game.
