Dawson shared the news with TMZ on Thursday when they caught up with her at a Washington D.C.-area airport.
The outlet shared a video of the encounter, during which the reporter noted that Dawson had been frequently visiting the nation’s capital and had “been hanging out with” Booker.
The reporter also asked Dawson whether there was “any truth to the relationship with you and Cory Booker?”
“Yeah,” she replied. "Yes, very much so.”
“So far, so wonderful,” she added after being asked how the relationship was progressing. “He’s a wonderful human being. It’s good to spend some time together when we can. Very busy.”
The actress kept fairly mum on whether the pair was headed toward an engagement but offered an optimistic note on their relationship.
“I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving,” she said.
The comments came after Page Six reported Booker's link to Dawson.
