Ever since Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr. were first linked in September this year, they have been exchanging PDA all over the Big Apple. 

However, this Tuesday, the Batman Begins actress and her beau appeared more reserved though they held each other’s hands during their date night out. The 33-year-old celebrity chef and his 41-year-old actress girlfriend were spotted together while enjoying a romantic evening out in New York City.

They have had no qualms about showing their affections for each other and appear to be completely besotted with one another. The Secret actress donned a stylish camel trench coat over her red and white sweater. 

Holmes wore a pair of washed boot-cut jeans and accessorized them with her black leather boots. The Jack and Jill actress styled her hair in an effortlessly chic messy bun for her evening out. She did not forget to cover her face with a protective blue mask. 

Meanwhile, the young chef sported a grey outfit for the occasion and accentuated his look further with slickly styled back hair. Vitolo sported a pair of grey chinos with a matching turtleneck. He donned a tweed blazer over it and wore a black face mask. 

The lovebirds seemed to have also done some shopping as the chef was seen carrying a Bloomingdale’s bag. Their recent outing comes just a few days after it was reported that Emilio Vitolo Jr.’s mother did not approve of their relationship though they had the blessing of their dad.

The duo is often seen hanging out at his dad’s restaurant. An unnamed insider who claimed to be close to the chef’s mother told Page Six that she feels she has brought him up to do better than that. According to the same source, she did not approve of the way her son handled his latest relationship. 

Vitolo allegedly ended his engagement with his live-in fiancée via a text message just a couple of days before the kissing pictures of Holmes and his came out in the open. The tipster further added that the Jack and Jill actress was more of his kind as he prefers “older women.

Katie Holmes was dating Jamie Foxx for six years before her latest relationship with the celebrity chef. Holmes and Foxx had always been noncommittal about their relationship. They had their maiden public outing together in 2019 and were snapped at the Met Gala. 

However, they had a breakup in May last year amid reports of the actor-singer’s fling with singer Sela Vave. Katie Holmes was previously married to Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise for six years – 2006 to 2012. The former couple shares a daughter called Suri Cruise, Daily Mail reports.
