When “Pose” star Mj Rodriguez revealed her boyfriend, Stephen, to the world on Valentine’s Day 2020, many fans and co-stars alike were surprised. Rodriguez, who is private about life outside of the screen, shared cute photos and a sweet caption on Instagram.
“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,” Rodriguez wrote in the since-deleted post, according to Gay Times. “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.”
While the 2020 Valentine’s Day post was deleted, Rodriguez’s most recent February 14 tribute to Stephen is still up for all to see. In the post, which was paired with the above selfie, she gushed about how great of a boyfriend he is. “You have set the highest standard for how any human should treat another human being,” she wrote.
