Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaged to longtime partner Riley Roberts

The New York Democratic congresswoman confirmed Thursday that she is engaged to longtime partner Riley Roberts.

“That’s right! Thank you all for your well wishes,” she tweetedwhile commenting on a Business Insider report that first reported on her engagement.

The legislator, who The Hill Reported was seen wearing “bling” on her ring finger, has been dating the web developer since they first met as students at Boston University, according to Marie Claire.

Ocasio-Cortez’s mother in 2019 publicly gave the couple her blessing in an interview with the Daily Mail after her daughter was sworn in as the youngest woman and youngest Latina to ever serve in Congress.

“I love him,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez said of Roberts, calling him “the most loving, supportive person I’ve seen.”

“He helped her enormously during the elections. They have been together for four years now, having reconnected after a college breakup,” her mother told the outlet. “So, I hope they get married soon. Although they haven’t told me anything about their plans.
