Gorgeous Madam Secretary on-screen married couple Tim Daly and Téa Leoni outed themselves as a real-life item at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in April, but Daly admits he's had his eye on someone else for years.
PEOPLE caught up with him Tuesday night at the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights' Ripple of Hope Awards gala in New York City, where several members of the Kennedy family gathered for a mini-reunion. Honorees included Georgia Congressman John Lewis, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Evercore co-founder Roger Altman and UNESCO Ambassador Marianna Vardinoyannis.
"I am friends with Kerry and Bobby Kennedy – and Ethel, who is sort of my crush ... my Kennedy crush," Daly told PEOPLE.

Tea Leoni and Tim Daly made their stunning public debut as a couple at the White House Correspondents' Dinner last week, and even the cast of their hit CBS show Madam Secretary say their romance came as a surprise.
"I heard a rumor about it and everyone was like, 'no, no way!' And I'm like, 'maybe…' " Geoffrey Arend, who plays a staffer on Leoni's character's team, told PEOPLE on Tuesday at a special New York screening of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron presented by Cinema Society and Audi.

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

For the new fall season, CBS has gone and found a plausible sister show to pair with Julianna Margulies's The Good Wife.
Here, too, we have a sophisticated, 40-something actress (Téa Leoni) in a situation (the White House) that teems with smart, powerful adults who would humiliate you and reduce you to tears if you ever met them in real life.
The premiere episode of Madam Secretary, for the time being, suggests that the show is very much the little sister in this scenario – but then again, The Good Wife is the rare show that was letter-perfect even in its pilot.

Téa Leoni is in a fresh phase of her life – she's got a new project, starring in the title role of Madam Secretary, and is newly single, having split with husband David Duchovny this summer after 17 years of marriage.
