Cory Booker Admits To Writing Poetry For Novia Rosario Dawson And The Way He Gushes About Her Is Making Hearts Explode

In case you missed it, Democratic presidential candidate, Cory Booker, and Puerto Rican actress Rosario Dawson are in love. After months of rumors, Dawson confirmed this month that the two are dating. A TMZ reporter asked if she saw a wedding in their future, to which she gave the best response saying, “I have no idea. I am just so grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much.”

Cory Booker has had very cute things to say about his novia.

Before Dawson confirmed their relationship, Booker confessed on the radio talk show “Breakfast Club” that he was dating someone “really special” and that she was his “boo.” Oh, and that she would make a “great First Lady” someday. ???? Dios mio.

Just this weekend, Booker was backstage with MSNBC with Ari Melber when he confessed that he also writes love poems for Dawson.

It all started when MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber was sharing rap lyrics from Senator Booker’s home state of New Jersey. At one point, Melber jokingly said, “When you get to be a famous rapper, you don’t even need to rhyme anymore.”

“I’m going to say something I’m about to regret,” Booker responds.

“I may or might not write things to my girlfriend,” Booker admitted in the behind-the-scenes interview. “I think sometimes I get a creative license from my hip hop love. I will write a poem that sort of rhymes in the way that hip hop folks can get away with.”

Booker also gave us some freestyling backstage.

Maybe running for president is where he will best serve his nation. As for the freestyling, not so much. However, it would be kind of epic to watch him and Bernie Sanders fight it out in a freestyle battle on the debate stage.

E! News first reported sightings of the two on January 8 at a “Dear Evan Hansen” event.

Washington meets Hollywood (not for the first time): Rosario Dawson and Senator Cory Booker were sparking romance rumors after attending #DearEvanHansen together.

Given Dawson’s huge political platform and interests, it’s clear the two have a lot in common.

“Everyone, including incarcerated women, can live with dignity so please stand with us to reform the criminal justice system. Join me and support #cut50 with a digni-tee! Get yours through omaze.com/dignity … “Did you know that 80% of incarcerated women in America are mothers? That 90% of women behind bars are survivors of sexual violence? Or that 2,000 women give birth behind bars every year? Help us start the conversation and create some change.” –The #cut50Team #WillILoseMyDignity#WillSomeoneCare”

The news led to some Booker fans to remind the world of her controversial politics during the 2016 election.

Dawson co-founded Voto Latino, a non-profit organization that seeks to mobilize Latino voters and get them registered and represented in our democracy. She also campaigned on the road for Bernie Sanders and then voted for a third-party candidate during the primaries.

But Dawson isn’t changing herself or her ways to become the political girlfriend trope.

@Fantaskatic / Twitter

She’s giving us her annual naked selfies on her birthdays no matter who she’s dating, and we love her for it. Never change, Rosario.

The last few days have been entrenched with rumors that the two are engaged.

@schavarro_ / Twitter

The actress spoke at NBC Upfronts annual event, and it was hard not to notice that big diamond ring on her ring finger.

“I would only accept President Cory Booker if he came with first lady Rosario Dawson so,” @epd206 (hopefully) joked on Twitter.

Some people are very excited about possibly having a Puerto Rican as the First Lady.

Are we looking at a Puerto Rican First Lady as an option for 2020? We don’t know, and given how long it took them to share their relationship with the world, it might be awhile until rumors are confirmed or denied.

In the meantime, so many people are just genuinely happy for the couple.

@MARIAAL25005903 / Twitter

In case you weren’t sure if Booker is worthy, here’s what he told Ellen DeGeneres about Dawson:

“[Rosario] really has this nurturing spirit that has made me more courageous — not just in the love that I project and want to see in our country, but I think in our own personal relationships to love more fearlessly. I’m very, very blessed to be with somebody that makes me a better person.”

Sold. ????????????

Latinas Talk About Love At First Sight

Latinas Talk About Love At First Sight

Miramax

In an infamous scene in the 1992 book Like Water for Chocolate, the novel’s main characters Tita and Pedro swear their undying love for each other within minutes of first meeting. Just like that, they experienced love at first sight. Stories all throughout history have detailed the romantic personal experience of an instant and ultimately long-lasting romantic attraction for a stranger upon first sight. But how practical— or even true is that really?

We turned to our FIERCE readers to see just how prevalent this phenomenon is.

In a post to our Instagram page we asked Latinas for their love at first love stories.

And scavenged around Reddit for good measure. Check out what we discovered below!

“Yes. I had briefly met him before but it was the first time I ever really noticed him. We had a whirlwind romance and then he left to take a job in Europe. We kept in touch for a few years but never saw each other again. He is the gold standard I judge men by.” –
adorableadelita

“YES with my dog the second I saw him I knew he was the one!! I’ve had him for 17years now and we are happily ever after.”- virgok1

“Yes but I’m just not brave enough to tell them they’re beautiful tho, most incredible smile I’ve ever seen the most captivating set of eyes I’ve ever looked into. But well love from afar right?” –ta_ta1009

“Yes. And it was delicious, I’ll never forget those Tacos dorados. My one and only.”- funkycold___medina

“Yes! I never knew love could fill your heart like that so instantly and so completely! It was the first time I ever saw my niece! Best feeling in the world!”- yesi_lo

“Not in love but in strong lust.” – magnetic67

“Yes! And we just got married during the pandemic (very interesting way how we got married).”-21djenne

“Just when I first laid eyes 👀 on the paletero in my neighborhood. Jokes aside I love that man, he’s so sweet.”- dreathunder

“Yup met mine when I was 17 yrs old and knew I would marry them. Here we are 18 years later and still together.” –elizabeth_pearl

“We were both 18 going on 19. He was a second year science student, I was a fresh faced firstie at a brand new University. I was also 95% sure I was lesbian. I saw this goofy ginger at the outdoor movie theatre, he had Styrofoam strapped to his head and declared himself Julius Ceasar, and gave me the biggest and most genuine smile. When he asked my name, it was a genuine want not just a question you ask to fill time. My heart squeezed a bit, and we kept eye contact for a bit too long before we both turned back to the screen. The next day we ended up sitting across from eachother in the cafeteria, and as soon as I saw him sitting there with a grin on his gorgeous face I knew I could love him. We were attached at the hip for at least 8 hours every day for a month, it was like a need to be around eachother, a magnetic pull and attraction. We started dating after a few weeks. We both fell in love quickly. I never believed in love at first sight, but we fit together perfectly in every way and every day, even now as we’re 20 with a lot of growth and ‘relationship strainers’ under our belts there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where I don’t think of him and fall further in love. We’ve fought a bit, met eachothers families, he’s held my hand in the hospital and I’ve held his. We’ve had the kids talk, marriage talk, finances talk, and we’re moving in together this summer. It’s also pretty great that we have the same taste in women. I have never been happier, and he tells me the same.”-HelloSchrodi

“We met at work, when we both locked eyes we were drawn to each other. After a week of flirting with each other and staring into her beautiful blue eyes, she actually asked ME out. We dated for 8 years and got engaged; being madly in love is perfection. She walked down the aisle about 13 months after she accepted my proposal. She gave birth to her first child 10 months later, and had her second 2 years after that. She’s very happy in her life. Kind of wished she married me instead of the dickhead she met a month after leaving me.” –UrMomLikesMine

“It was a whirlwind. Can’t really explain it. Distance and heavy workloads on both our parts (we couldn’t see each other at all one year) made us end it. Still best friends, still in a sort of a platonic bond. We’ve both seen other people since then (I’ve just had a bad experience), but I don’t think I’ve ever felt that kind of… ease around someone until months have passed. When she moves here in a few years, who knows? She never will, but if she asked me to wait. I’d say yes in a heasrtbeat.” –ionised

“Yes… now married 10 years.” – juju_bees_mommy

“Well for me it wasn’t at first sight. But for him it was. Within the first week he knew I would be the one he was going to marry and spend his life with. My feelings grew quickly also and we knew we had met our soul mate very quickly. We are doing great. He’s saving up for an engagement ring, both support eachother in our respective fields (me in tattoo artistry and him in filmmaking). Once our financial situation is in order we plan to move to Seattle. I have never been so in love and I don’t regret it for a second.”- BigHeroDicks

A Video On Social Media Has Everyone Assuming That Bad Bunny Is Now Engaged

gabrielaberlingeri / Instagram

Social media is a great way to spread your news. It seems like Bad Bunny might secretly be trying to spread some special news. A video on his girlfriend’s Instagram has everyone speculating that the Puerto Rican artist is now engaged.

It’s amazing how one video can send people into a series of tailspins.

A post shared by 787 (@gabrielaberlingeri) on

It seems like a woman innocently sipping a smoothie and enjoying her day. However, if you look closely, you will see that the young woman is actually wearing a ring on an important finger.

The news is spreading fast all over social media.

Nothing has been confirmed but social media works as good as a small-town rumor mill. As soon as one person sees it, everyone has to know about it. Like, it can never just be a little secret for people hold among themselves. Twitter is the land of snap reactions and unfounded claims.

The rumor has already started breaking hearts across the internet.

Honestly, the best part about celebrities is believing that you can one day be their boo. Now, with this cryptic video, it is clear that Bad Bunny’s heart is being permanently taken away from us.

Some folks are just mad.

Like, calm down. It is literally not a big deal because of the likelihood of finding and marrying a celebrity is pretty low. Hollywood has spent too much time trying to get us to believe that that was so possible.

Some people are happy for the young woman finding happiness.

Nothing wrong with celebrating someone who is winning at life. If you were engaged to Bad Bunny, you’d be happy too.
