In These Uncertain Times, it’s good to know there are still some things we can rely on.
Katie Holmes and new man Emilio Vitolo Jr. making out in public appears to be one of them. In the latest variation on one of Holmes’ favorite themes, the new lovebirds were snapped strolling in Central Park, holding hands and — to borrow a phrase from across the pond — snogging.
Holmes, 41, and Vitolo, 33, doubled down on their commitment to PDA en plein air — and quality knitwear — Thursday. Holmes opted for a grey tank and jeans, wearing her sweater around her waist, while Vitolo went for a look exactly one pair of cream slacks away from a 1990s R&B star with a sweater matching his now-signature cap.
In the pics, the pair swap adoring gazes, stare at Holmes’ phone and, demonstrating an admirable adherence to public health, only remove their masks while socially distanced from the rest of the park-going public. Vitolo carries a Poland Spring water bottle, obviously a necessity during such dehydrating activities.
Celebrity-obsessed chef and aspiring actor Vitolo was first linked to Holmes earlier this month. He appears to have broken up with his fiancée of 18 months — designer Rachel Emmons, 24 — via text mere hours before pics of he and Holmes went public.
Holmes split with her boyfriend of six years, fellow thespian Jamie Foxx, in August 2019.
