Months after many of us overreacted (some were basically planning weddings) to seeing Senator and presidential hopeful Cory Booker and actor Rosario Dawson hanging out, Dawson confirmed that she and Cory are indeed dating. Now that it’s all out in the open, Booker was able to speak about the relationship on a recent visit on The Ellen Show.

Booker explained that Rosario revealed the news as she was trying to leave DC, where she had been visiting him. And then he had just very sweet things to say about her.

“She’s just an incredible human being,” he said. “She is a deeply soulful person and has taught me a lot of lessons about love already and that 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 I think also in our own personal relationships to love more fearlessly. I’m very, very blessed to be with someone who makes me a better person.”

After his sweet words, Ellen got straight to the point and asked of any possible upcoming weddings. She then suggested that they wait to marry until after he potentially wins the presidency, so that we could have our own version of the Royal Wedding.

“So you’re saying if Rosario and I get there, wait, don’t do the marriage before?” he joked.
