Nia Sanchez, who was crowned Miss USA 2014 Sunday night, doesn't just have the coveted beauty pageant tiara and a great career ahead of her.

She's got a supportive, loving boyfriend in actor Daniel Booko.

Daniel Booko, Nia Sanchez

The 24-year-old stunner gushed about the love of her life at a press conference after her big win, revealing that they've been together for over a year.

Booko, who has appeared in The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class and Pretty Little Liars, among other film and TV credits, could not be happier:

"I can't believe!! I love and am so proud of u baby!!! it's gonna gonna be an amazing year!!!! #missusa2014 #teamnia #proudboyfriend," he wrote.

The couple certainly looks totes adorable in the photo above.

Booko is pals with none other than Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson's fiance. Ross wrote to her: "Congrats!! @missnvusa2014 so excited for you. You won!!!!"

"I'm sure you and my brother @danielbooko are celebrating tonight!"

Nia Sanchez: Miss USA!
Nia Sanchez is your new Miss USA for 2014. Congratulations Nia on a job well done.

We can think of a lot of different ways he'd want to celebrate with Nia Sanchez following her historic victory... and not all of them include food.

Which is what she was most excited about after the event was over.

At the press conference, Miss USA 2014 also admitted that she can't wait to splurge on some Italian food after weeks of prepping for the competition.

"Anything hearty," Nia Sanchez said, asked what she was craving.

Is she basically saying she was starving herself in preparation for the big night? Maybe not overtly, but it makes you wonder what goes on behind the scenes.

One of her competitors who won praise for her "real" bikini body she displayed at the pageant? Check out this gallery of Miss Indiana Mekayla Diehl:
