Tiffany Trump is engaged to her Lebanon-born boyfriend Michael Boulos, who proposed in the White House just ahead of Donald Trump's presidency drawing to a close.
The Lebanese-Nigerian businessman proposed to Tiffany, the youngest daughter of the outgoing US president, in the Washington address's famed Rose Garden.
"It has been an honour to celebrate many milestones, historic occasions and create memories with my family here at the White House, none more special than my engagement to my amazing fiance Michael," said Tiffany, 27, as she revealed the news on Instagram.
"Feeling blessed and excited for the next chapter!"
In the announcement post, the Georgetown Law graduate and Boulos, 23, are pictured standing on the White House colonnade, an engagement ring just visible on Tiffany's finger.
The photograph was also shared by Boulos, who captioned the portrait: "Got engaged to the love of my life! Looking forward to our next chapter together."
The engagement ring was designed by Lebanese-born American jeweller Samer Halimeh, who revealed the ring was crafted with a 13-carat emerald-cut diamond, flanked by two trapeze-cut diamonds.
A spokesperson from Samer Halimeh New York told the
Daily Mail the jewels were purchased in Dubai, with Halimeh and Boulos flying out to the UAE to select the diamonds.
The news was announced on Tuesday, just a day ahead of Donald Trump handing over the reins to President-elect Joe Biden, who will be inaugurated on Wednesday.
Who is Michael Boulos?
Boulos is the son of Lebanese businessman, Massad Boulos, from the village of Kfaraakka, in the north of the country.
He runs Boulos Enterprises and SCOA Nigeria, and "trades in vehicles, equipment, retail and construction".
His mother, Sarah Boulos, founded the Society for the Performing Arts in Nigeria, which is a “one-stop destination for performance art, dance, theatre, music and visual arts".
Boulos was born in Lebanon and raised and educated in Lagos.
He and Tiffany began dating in 2018, and he has frequently been pictured accompanying his now-fiancee at political events in support of her father.
