    Dawson confirmed the news to TMZ reporters who confronted her Thursday at Reagan National Airport in Washington, telling them Booker is “an amazing human being.”

    Rumors about the two began churning after Dawson and Booker were spotted together in January at a production of the Broadway musical “Dear Evan Hansen” in New York City, Entertainment Tonight reported.

    Then, during a March appearance on the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” Booker said, "I got a boo,” when asked about his relationship status.

    When reporters asked Dawson whether she foresees an engagement on the horizon, the “Luke Cage” star laughed.

    “I have no idea,” she said. “I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much."
