For better or worse, the decision to become "Instagram official" as a couple is kind of a big deal these days. So what better backdrop to say, "hello world, we're dating" than the White House?

Tiffany Trump, the youngest of President Donald's daughters and his only child with second wife Marla Maples, brought her new beau to her dad's residence over the holidays, and on Friday she posted the proof. The image shows her and billionaire businessman boyfriend Michael Boulos standing in front of a well-lit Christmas tree in the Red Room (which is not part of the private residence) – Tiffany in a black sheath dress with a knee-high slit and Boulos in a tuxedo. She posted the pic sans caption, though she tagged both Boulos and her own account (in case you forgot who you were looking at) as well as the location.

She posted a similar image in which she's wearing the same outfit in the Red Room on Dec. 13, so it's safe to assume that the photo was taken at least a few weeks ago. However, this is hardly the first time the couple has been spotted together — they were photographed sitting side-by-side front row at New York Fashion Week in September — but, as I said, this is Boulos's Instagram debut on Tiffany's feed. She was previously linked to Ross Mechanic, whose last appearance on her Instagram was back in April of 2017.

Boulos was first connected to Trump back in November, and People confirms that the two met last summer at Lindsay Lohan's beach club in Mykonos. Yes, you read that correctly. Boulos's Nigerian roots raised some eyebrows given the president's alleged comments about "shithole countries," including Nigeria, in Africa. Trump denied that he used the phrase despite the report from both CNN and The Washington Post, but Nigeria responded regardless, calling his words "deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable."

It's still unclear whether Boulos met the president, but oh, what we would have given to be a fly on that wall if he did.
