Katie Holmes & Her New Boyfriend Just Got Very Flirty on Instagram

When it comes to her new boyfriend, Emilio Vitolo Jr., Katie Holmes isn’t afraid to show PDA.

It all started earlier this week when Vitolo posted a rare photo on Instagram in honor of Holmes’s 42nd birthday on December 18. The never-before-seen pic features a candid moment between Holmes and Vitolo, along with a flirtatious conversation in the comments section.

The caption read, “The most amazing, kindest, beautiful person [heart emoji]. Every time I see your face it makes me smile. Happy Birthday!!! I love you!!”

Holmes didn’t hold back on the PDA when she responded to the post, writing, “Thank you so much my love [heart emojis] I love u too!!!!”

Though we don’t know many specifics, the Dawson’s Creek actress started dating Vitolo earlier this year. Vitolo is an Italian-Peruvian chef, who helms his family’s star-studded New York City restaurant, Emilio’s Ballato. (The hot spot was originally opened by his dad, Emilio Vitolo Sr.) Since then, he’s cooked for celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Bradley Cooper and Lenny Kravitz.

The couple has been spotted on multiple occasions during this time of social distancing (masks included). Back in October, they were photographed with Holmes’s daughter, Suri Cruise (14), during a casual bike ride around New York City.

*Sniff, sniff* Is that a future engagement we smell?
