They’ve been seen together on beach getaways and coffee runs but on Sunday, July 1, 2012, Eddie Murphy and Rocsi Diaz seemed to make their romance official as they stepped out on the red carpet.
SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES…
The comedian, who is said to have started dating the BET VJ last month, was arm-in-arm with his new squeeze at a pre-celebration for the network’s awards show tonight.
Eddie, 51, and 106 & Park host Rocsi, 28, made for a handsome couple in matching shades of blue.
The couple was on hand at network CEO Debra Lee’s popular pre-BET Awards celebration at Union Station in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Stepping out in a navy cocktail dress criss-crossed at the neck with a flirty keyhole detail and embellished stilettos, Rocsi looked sophisticated and elegant.
The Latina’s brunette locks spiralled down her shoulders, and with natural make-up and her new man by her side, she appeared absolutely aglow.
Eddie matched his new squeeze in a navy button down and blue shoes paired with a black suit and dark sunglasses.
The pair recently jetted to Los Angeles after a brief Hawaiian getaway earlier this month.
Eddie and Rocsi, who have kept their relationship relatively low-profile at the start, were seen cuddling up on the balcony of their hotel in Maui as they soaked in the sun.
It was revealed last month that the comedian had started dating the beauty, after the pair were seen leaving a coffee shop hand-in-hand.
As well as looking smitten with her new love, Rocsi will no doubt be seeking acting advice from Eddie, as she is apparently pursuing an acting career.
Rocsi and her 106 & Park co-host Terrance J recently announced they’d be moving onwards and upwards in their careers after going from rags to riches with their show.
A teary-eyed Rocsi told audiences: ‘Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young black culture. It continues to be our honour to do this for you.’
