Well, it’s official … that ‘boo’ Sen. Cory Booker said he had is actress Rosario Dawson.

Dawson was spotted walking through Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., and she confirmed to reporters that she and Booker are, in fact, a couple, according to reports.

“He’s a wonderful human being, it’s wonderful to spend some time together when we can,” Dawson said of the 2020 presidential candidate.

It had been rumored for months that the two were an item, after being spotted together on numerous occasions. And speculation only increased after Booker made an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” and confirmed that he had a “boo.”

The issue came up after Booker mentioned living in a basement apartment in Washington, which host Charlamagne tha God noted was a sign of a true bachelor and a rarity for an American president.

But, Booker said before he declared for president he was already dating someone, “who is really special.”

“Oh, so Cory Booker got a boo?” Charlamagne tha God asked.

“I, I, got a boo,” he answered with a laugh.

Nearly all presidents elected are married. Only a handful of single men have made it to the White House, including Thomas Jefferson in 1800, Martin Van Buren in 1836 and James Buchanan in 1857.
