Love is in the air! Whether it’s a capitalist’s creation or not, February 14 is the day we’ve chosen to celebrate the special ones in our lives, many times publicly. We buy them chocolates and flowers, and write sweet nothings into red cards or on social media. As Denver Sean, editor of LoveBScott.com wrote to Twitter, it has incidentally become Happy Surprise Boyfriend Day, as your followers find out about the loves of your lives that you usually don’t post about. The surprise boyfriend that Mj Rodriguez had in store for us: Stephen.
“They’ll try to hold you back, they will say [you’re] wrong, but they will NEVER UNDERSTAND that journey that [you’re] on,” Rodriguez wrote as a quote in the caption of a video and photo montage she posted featuring herself and Stephen. “Baby I wouldn’t choose it any other way. I love you. I feel like I can be my truest self when I am around you. You have shown me what love truly looks like when it’s balanced and easy. I’m so proud to call you my Valentine but most importantly my boyfriend.
“You are always rooting me on, you always make sure my physical, my spiritual, and my mental state is okay,” she continued. “I’m so appreciative of you. Happy Valentine’s Day. I LOVE YOU Stephen.” And now, I’m crying.
While Rodriguez didn’t tag Stephen, her co-stars and others flooded the comments with support. “Omg, omg, omg,” Pose colleague Dominique Jackson wrote. “Love it,” model and actress Isis King continued.
“Excuse my while I go sob!!” Alex Newell wrote. “This is so precious!” indeed it is.
Others like Jordan Roth, Angelica Ross, and Milk left emojis.
