Geo-tagging their matching engagement posts over the Labor Day weekend, Naomi and her fiancé appear to have gotten engaged in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where Neal's parents run a small business, according to MTV

Naomi, who graduated from Columbia Law School in 2020, had hundreds in the comment section of her Instagram post sharing their well wishes for her and Neal, a student at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. The engagement picture of the couple, who met back in 2018 according to Hola!, has since gotten nearly 26,000 likes at the time of writing.

President Biden has a tight-knit relationship with his grandchildren, who have nicknamed him "Pop." In an interview with Today prior to his inauguration on January 20, Naomi and three other Biden grandchildren spoke about their close relationship with their grandfather and how he makes sure to call all of them "every few days."

The couple have both shown they are keen to follow in the president's footsteps when it comes to public service. Putting their legal minds together in 2020, Neal and Naomi created a website with a quiz to help those affected by COVID-19 navigate the CARES Act and determine whether they qualify for government aid. 

Representatives for the White House did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
