WASHINGTON (WASHINGTON POST) - Tiffany Trump has made it official: She has a new boyfriend, people.

The announcement went out not with engraved notices but with an Instagram picture of herself at the White House, arm-in-arm with Mr Michael Boulos, a businessman from a wealthy family in Nigeria.

Rumours and tabloid reports speculated the 25-year-old second-year student at Georgetown University Law School was dating Mr Boulos, but the photo of the couple, taken at a holiday party in front of a brightly decorated tree in the executive mansion's Red Room - and blasted to her one million followers - is practically today's version of confirmation.

A story in People magazine says the two were introduced in the summer at US actress Lindsay Lohan's club in Mykonos, Greece.

Mr Boulos hails from a Lebanese family that owns several businesses in Nigeria, according to reports, which means he fits in with the globe-trotting, glam crowd that Ms Trump typically runs with, at least according to her glossy Insta-feed.

His Instagram account identifies him as having attended the City University of London and working in "Project Management Finance and Risk".

A representative for Ms Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

One good omen for the cute couple?

They got the social-media-era equivalent of a blessing when Ms Trump's mum, President Donald Trump's second wife Marla Maples, was among the tens of thousands who "liked" their debut picture.
