It had been rumored for months at that point that the 2020 Presidential candidate was in a relationship with Rosario Dawson but neither of the two had confirmed it.
"Yes, very much so", Dawson answered with little hesitation and (might we add) a ginormous smile on her face. "[We] get to spend some time together when we can".
But first, a softball question: Dawson, who starred in Netflix's "Luke Cage" series, was asked if she thought Booker would make a good president. They then brought up Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's recent engagement and asked if she saw herself getting engaged soon.
"I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving", she told the outlet.
Calls to a Booker spokesman were not immediately returned.
"I'm dating someone that's really special", he said on the radio show on New York City's Power 105.1 FM.
The senator, who gained national prominence in the fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, formally launched his presidential campaign on February 1, joining a crowded field of Democrats seeking their party's nomination for the White House in 2020. In 2014, the actress adopted a 12-year-old girl. After being spotted at a movie theater and then at a Broadway show, people started planning the rest of the duo's life (basically a lot of First Lady Rosario Dawson fan fiction).
"Yeah", she answered while huffing through the terminal in a black beanie.
