The Krystal star revealed the news to TMZ, calling Booker “an amazing human being” before declaring they are “very much so” in a relationship.
When asked how things are going so far, the native New Yorker said, “So far, so wonderful! He’s a wonderful human being, it’s good to spend some time together when we can. We’re very busy.”
She went on, “I’m just grateful to be with someone I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving.”
Booker confirmed that he was in a relationship during a visit last month to The Breakfast Club, telling the morning show crew that he had a “boo” without revealing her identity.
