While on the subject of relationships, Dawson spoke a bit about her current relationship with former presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. She mentions that when it comes to that relationship it was a first for her in terms of being “responsible about my choice of love.”

“It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do. If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”

Dawson added, “But in each other I think we found our person.”
