LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Michaela Jae Rodriguez is over the moon to find love in her boyfriend Stephen Gimigliano.

“I am very grateful that I do have my boyfriend in my life. I love, love,” the 'Nurse Jackie' star told People Magazine.

“He is my first and most likely last. And I'm very thankful for that. He has shown what it is like to have true love in your life, someone who cares for you, and also what trash does not look like,” the 33-year-old added.

Michaela Jae Rodriguez says 'there are a lot of men out here that are trash'

Rodriguez continued, "He is much more than any of that. I know there are a lot of men out here that are trash, and I know I can say that because I've been through the gamut, but this man, he is nothing of the sort. He is a diamond.”

Rodriguez, who currently stars in the Apple TV+ comedy 'Loot', reportedly gets “giddy” over Gimigliano and wants to “garnish him in everything, diamonds and rubies. That’s exactly what he is.”

The reel also weaves in audio from Rodriguez’s 2022 interview with Them, in which she speaks about Gimigliano.

“Everybody was like, you were trying to hide him from us? And I'm like, yes, child because y'all wanna be all up in my business, and I just wanted to be me and him, okay,” she said at the time.

“People do need to see love on a trans woman. They need to see that. They need to see what love is and how it expands beyond gender, race, anything,” she added.
