Dawson, 39, went public about her relationship with the New Jersey Democrat in an on-camera interview with the celebrity news website TMZ.com as she was strolling through Reagan National Airport near Washington. The video was posted on Thursday (March 14).
Asked if there was any truth to recent media reports that she was involved with the 49-year-old bachelor politician, Dawson gamely replied, “Yes, very much so.”
“He’s a wonderful human being. It’s great to spend time together when we can,” she said.
Asked whether an engagement might be on the horizon, she said, “I have no idea. I’m just grateful to be to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving.”
The New York Post reported in January that the actress and former Newark, New Jersey, mayor had been seeing each other since at least December 2018.
