Rosario Dawson Confirms She’s Dating Presidential Candidate Cory Booker: ‘So Far So Wonderful'
“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 TMZ
While walking through Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., Dawson was asked by TMZ whether there was any truth to the reports that they are in a relationship.
“Yeah,” she said with a grin. “Yes, very much so.”
“So far so wonderful,” added Dawson, 39, before piling on the praise for the 49-year-old politician, who is running for president. “He’s a wonderful human being. It’s good to spend some time together when we can.”
“I have no idea,” she told TMZ. “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.”
Reps for Booker and Dawson did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Booker himself was a little less coy about their future when he opened up about his then-mystery girlfriend last month.
Admitting he was no longer a bachelor during his appearance on the syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club, Booker told host Charlamagne tha God, “I got a boo.”
“I’m dating someone [who] is very special,” he said, before hinting that wedding bells could ring for them before the 2020 presidential election.
“There’s two more years, so give me some time,” he said. “My girlfriend might listen to this.”

The pair sent romance rumors into overdrive in January after attending a showing of Broadway’s Dear Even Hansen together, alongside Dawson’s daughter, Lola, and Booker’s niece.
There, an onlooker told PEOPLE, the two were all smiles with one another during a cast meet-and-greet. Dawson even sang “I love you, te amo” — Spanish for “I love you” — to Booker in an “impromptu, made-up-on-the-spot” tune.
According to Page Six, the two have known each other for years.
