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.

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.

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.

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.

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. ????????????
