The couple’s third outing together in the past nine days took place on Thursday morning when they visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
She was also wearing a crop top that highlighted her trim waist, along with exposed green leggings. Dawit was dressed in a green pair of shorts, a pink t-shirt, and a pair of shorts bearing a portrait of the late Bob Marley.

One of the four children, Dawit, is transliterated as David. The musician’s parents have always supported his musical endeavors and frequently attend his performances.
Jon, 72, was a key player in helping the refugees during the early 2000s Sudanese conflict, when hundreds of thousands fled to Ethiopia to escape the bloodshed.

Even though they also own a home in the Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Chantilly, Virginia, the Eklunds have made Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, their permanent home since Jon’s retirement.

Eklund, a key member of the city’s electronic label and group 1432 R, is skilled at making beats that seem easy but are actually highly complicated, according to the Daily Mail.
