Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., is opening up about his relationship with actress Rosario Dawson.
TMZ originally broke the story about the two dating after interviewing the actress at the airport.
"You know, she was visiting me in D.C., and then she left to the airport, and she got ambushed at the airport," Booker said Wednesday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." "I suddenly get this little video from her saying 'I got TMZ'd! I don't have makeup on – this, and this, and that."
"But she was wonderful. She's just an incredible human being."
And he added:
"As our relationship grows its difficult, but she is such a deeply soulful person. And has taught me a lot of lessons about love already. Sometimes, you show the greatest strength when you make yourself vulnerable. She 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."
During the interview with TMZ, Dawson commented on her relationship with Booker, who is running for president: "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much."
