If 2020 candidate Cory Booker managed to win the presidency, he would become a rarity in the White House: a bachelor president. Unless ...? The 49-year-old New Jersey senator let slip last month that he had a "boo," and now TMZ is confirming that it's actress Rosario Dawson, 39. While walking through Reagan National Airport on Thursday, Dawson told the website that she's in a "wonderful" relationship with Booker. "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much," she said.

Dawson's acting credits include Men in Black II and Rent, but Politico notes that she's not a stranger to politics herself. She co-founded a group called Voto Latino, whose goal is to get more young Latinos to vote. So might wedding bells be in the near future? Dawson didn't go that far, saying she had "no idea" about that. (Another 40-something joined the 2020 race on Thursday. See what pundits think about Beto O'Rourke's candidacy here.)
