Senator Cory Booker appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, and spoke effusively about his girlfriend, Daredevil star Rosario Dawson. A few days ago, Dawson confirmed her relationship with Booker, who is a presidential hopeful.
“Her confirmation was wonderful,” Booker says. “She’s just an incredible human being.”
Booker continues: “As our relationship grows it’s difficult but she’s just a deeply soulful person and has taught me a lot of lessons about love already,” Booker continues, “and sometimes you show the greatest strength when you make yourself vulnerable. She really has this nurturing spirit that’s made me more courageous not just in the love that I project and want to see in our country but even in our personal relationships to love more fearlessly, so I’m very very blessed to be with someone who makes me a better person.”
Booker, who is running for president in 2020, also jokes with DeGeneres that if he gets into marriage territory with Dawson, he’ll save the wedding for the White House if he’s also successful in his bid for higher office.
Booker and Dawson have been dating since at least December.
