Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., confirmed on Twitter Thursday that she is now engaged to longtime partner Riley Roberts, who she met while they were both students at Boston University. 

"It's true! Thank you all for the well wishes," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, confirming an Insider article that detailed the couple's engagement in Puerto Rico last month. 

The progressive lawmaker, 32, stayed uncharacteristically quiet on social media over the last few weeks.
