Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known by her initials AOC, is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district.
Taking office at age 29, Alexandria became the youngest woman to ever serve in the United States Congress.
AOC drew national attention when she won the Democratic Party’s primary election back in June of 2018. Now in a leadership position, the Democrat continues to make headlines for her works as an advocate on several progressive platforms or for some political controversies.
Besides, there are always people: curious and inquiring, about her personal affairs.
So, here’s what you may have been looking all-over about her web developer boyfriend, Riley Roberts.
He Is Supportive of AOC
Riley Roberts caught media/public attention especially after appearing in Netflix’s Knock Down the House.
The documentary film follows campaigns of four progressive Democrats including Alexandria, in the 2018 midterm elections.
On it, many got a proper glimpse of Riley for the first time. Viewers saw how he, as his partner, is passionate about politics; also, that he played an important role in Alexandria’s insurgent campaign.
“[In] everything from the emotional to the strategic to the practical, he has been a really important partner to her”— said Rachel Lears, director of the Knock Down the House.
Distinct Features, Internet Roast Him
Riley Roberts stands tall to 5 feet and 11 inches in height. Also, his weight was listed as 81kg or 178 pounds.
After the release of Knock Down the House in May 2019, Twitter had a “field day” over Roberts’ looks. A UK-based political reporter disrespected his “scruffy” appearance in the documentary, calling him a “bin-raccoon” in a tweet that went viral.
Later, AOC took to Instagram, her response to social media roasting her “easy-going redhead”. To a hilarious clip of Riley beaming with his new look, she captioned:
“The Internet roasted Riley into getting a haircut/glowup after #KnockDownTheHouse.”
Riley, meanwhile, flashed his trademark wide grin telling Alexandria (“stop stop”) as she asked him to turn his head and show off his side profile.
The video showed Robert looking more handsome with trimmed, shorter hair, and his beard, clipped as well, to a more tamed manner.
In the meantime, Riley did not have any social media accounts of his own. Although he occasionally appears on Alexandria’s.

Riley Roberts & AOC: Dating, Engaged, Married
Like always, Riley Roberts and AOC continued keeping a low profile. Although, per Newsweek, they did a small video together in February answering to fans questions and sharing their positive thoughts on how to tackle racism and all.
Riley putting his arm around AOC, the two casually chatted about different matters in hand.
But further, there haven’t been any updates on their marital status.
Although, at some point in 2019, AOC’s mother Blanca spoke to the Daily Mail about how much she wanted the pair to get engaged. “I love him. He is the most loving, supporting person I’ve seen. He helped her tremendously during the election,”— she said about her daughter’s long-time beau.
According to her, the couple had already been together for four years after they reconnected from a college breakup. She continued to spill the beans:
“I know they love children, and they do very well with children from the family. So, I hope they get married soon. Although they haven’t told me anything about their plans.”
Stay tuned until the parents of the most adorable pup, Deco, come upfront about their wedding plans.
