Malia Obama shows off athletic physique as she heads for a stroll near her Brentwood home

Malia Obama was spotted showing off her athletic physique as she went out for some exercise near her California home weeks after celebrating her 24th birthday.

The older daughter of former President Barack Obama wore a black, long-sleeve midriff top with matching black yoga pants, black and white sneakers and sunglasses resting on top of her head.

Malia, 24, went out accompanied by a friend on Saturday morning as they carried their cellphones in hand and canned drinks to help fend off the 90 degree weather in Brentwood.

Malia moved to Los Angeles last year, after graduating from Harvard, to pursue a career as a screenwriter.

In March, Donald Glover revealed that he had given the 24-year-old her first job as a writer on his new series, which is reportedly about ‘a Beyoncé-type character,’ with the actor calling her ‘amazingly talented’ and ‘ really focused.’

Glover has not said how Malia – who previously interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 – landed the job after she graduated from college but he added that he believed she has a promising future in the industry.

Since moving to Brentwood, Malia has been spotted on several occasions taking a stroll around her new neighborhood in casual wear as she settles in on the West Coast.

Saturday’s outing comes after Malia celebrated her 24th birthday with the Obama clan on July Fourth, with the former president sharing a picture of himself with his daughter when she was an infant.

‘No matter how sophisticated, accomplished, beautiful, and gracious a young woman you’ve become—you’ll always be my baby,’ Obama tweeted. ‘And I will always be here to lift you up.’

Former first lady Michelle Obama immediately followed suit, showing off her own picture with a young Malia as she, too, touted her support for the older Obama sibling.

‘Happy birthday, Malia – and Happy Fourth of July, everybody,’ Michelle tweeted. ‘Twenty-four years ago, this day became extra special when your wonderful spirit arrived in this world.

‘I’m so proud of the beautiful, caring, and driven young woman you’ve become. I love you so, so much! Love, your Mommy.’

While Malia is working as a screenwriter, her younger sister, Sasha, 21, is also building her own life in Los Angeles – reportedly studying at the University of Southern California after transferring from the University of Michigan.

The two sisters have been spotted out together, along with Sasha’s boyfriend, Clifton Powell Jr., 24, who is the son of Ray actor Clifton Powell.

Malia’s relationship status is unclear following her move to Los Angeles. She started dating Rory Farquharson – the son of chief executive of Insight Investment Management Limited Charles – in 2017, while they were both students at Harvard University.

However, whether she and Rory are still together is unknown, as she has never publicly addressed her relationship status.
