[ad_1]

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has confirmed she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Riley Roberts.

The 32-year-old Squad member confirmed to Insider that marketing professional Roberts has popped the question, and she has accepted.

AOC met Roberts when they were both undergraduates at Boston University.

While AOC has risen to become one of the most prominent progressive Democrats in Congress, Roberts has maintained a low profile.

He attended the Met Gala in 2021 when AOC wore the infamous ‘Tax the Rich’ dress and has appeared in her Instagram videos.

On Thursday, AOC said on Instagram that she had been ‘MIA’ for non-COVID “health issue.’ 

She tested positive after a highly-publicized trip to Miami over the New Year where she partied with drag stars and drank cocktails with Roberts outside. 

‘I’m back at it today, but was MIA for a bit to recover,’ she wrote on her story. ‘Just wanted to provide you all some assurance that the silence wasn’t political or anything as I know that worried some.’

AOC shared a bizarre video of her boyfriend’s feet after the Miami trip because she believed Republicans were ‘obsessed’ with them.

‘So we recently went to Florida, where Republicans developed an obsession with Riley’s feet,’ Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said in the video, as she panned the camera down to his shoes as he walked ahead of her in an apparent parking garage.

She added, shouting: ‘So give the people what they want!’

The video references comments made over the weekend by conservatives who slammed the Democratic socialist representative for partying maskless in restriction-free Florida and enjoying cocktails and sushi with Roberts.

Roberts was snapped wearing a pair of Birkenstocks with bare feet, prompting jokes from Republicans, and subsequent backlash from AOC who accused conservative tweeter Steve Cortes of being sexually frustrated.

Social media users first accused AOC of ‘frolicking in free Florida’ while her home state enforced mask mandates, after her Miami lunch date with her boyfriend on December 30.

‘AOC is STILL lounging it up in Florida, in large crowds and maskless. This time at a Drag Queen bar in Miami. Rules for thee but not for me,’ wrote right wing journalist Brendon Leslie.

‘For those of you with zero sense of humor: the whole point of this post is to expose hypocrisy. We don’t actually care she’s maskless. We care she fear mongers about Florida but then has the audacity to vacation here,’ he added.

‘AOC was spotted partying in a bar maskless in the great free state of Florida. Absolute hypocrite,’ tweeted Twitter account Libs of TikTok.

Hitting back, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: ‘If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos.’

‘It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general.’

She added: ‘These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.’
