Pose star MJ Rodriguez has introduced the world to her boyfriend in a Valentine’s Day message.
The actress, best known for playing Bianca Evangelista in the Ryan Murphy drama, shared a cute Instagram slideshow of herself with boyfriend Stephen.
MJ Rodriguez: ‘You have shown me what love truly looks like.’
She wrote: “They’ll try to hold you back, they will say your wrong, but they will NEVER UNDERSTAND, the journey that your on. 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 and my mental state is okay. I’m so appreciative of you. #happyvalentinesday I LOVE YOU Stephen 🥰😍❤️”

Love is in the air on the set of Pose.
Love is well and truly in the air on the set of Pose, with the show’s producer Janet Mock revealed last year to have split from her husband and begun dating Angel Bismark Curiel, who plays the troubled dreamboat Papi.
She explained to Out: “It began innocently enough. I had just wrapped an episode I was directing and he made me know he was attracted to me in a very jarring way, because I just wasn’t in the [romantic] headspace at all.
“A day later, at one of our first screenings, he asked, ‘Are you happy in your relationship?’ And I just answered, ‘Yeah,’ and then walked away. But it struck me [I wasn’t].
She continued of her later relationship with the actor: “You have to be vulnerable in that way all the time, and unafraid. That’s something that I’ve learned through this relationship. I wanted more of that challenge and that feeling and that connection.”
