Washington [US], May 20 (ANI): American politician and activist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known by her initials AOC, has confirmed on social media that she's now engaged to her longtime partner Riley Roberts.

According to Fox News, in an Instagram story on Thursday, she had written, "Just wanted to check in. I had a health issue sidelines for the last week or two (don't worry, it wasn't COVID and I'm fine now), but it was right when a series of major events happened."
As per the outlet, AOC had met her fiance while they were both students at Boston University. She met Roberts, a web developer from Arizona, at a coffee shop while they were both students at Boston University. (ANI)
