Katie Holmes and chef Emilio Vitolo, Jr. have been publicly dating since this summer, when they were spotted getting affectionate around New York City. The two certainly aren’t hiding anything, but they’ve been keeping things off social media…until now. On Friday, Vitolo shared a photo of himself and Holmes with the following message for her birthday:
“The most amazing, kindest, beautiful person ❤️. Every time I see your face it makes me smile. Happy Birthday!!! I love you!!”

Per People, Holmes shared the post on her story.
In August, TMZ first captured them out on a date at Antique Garage in Manhattan, and in September The Daily Mail saw them smooching at Peasant Restaurant in the city.
“They adore each other and can’t get enough of one another,” a source told Entertainment Tonight a month later. Another adds: “In the past it seemed like Katie would sort of mold to her partners’ lifestyle. But with Emilio, Katie is so authentically herself.”
“This is the real Katie and she’s playing by her own rules now,” another source told ET. “They’re so happy.”
Vitolo is the chef at Emilio’s Ballato in Soho. His father, Emilio Ballato, Sr., opened the restaurant in the 1990s, and the family works there together now. A source for Us Weekly said that Holmes’s new beau “doesn’t seem to have a negative bone in his body and he treats her like a total princess. For the first time in longer than she can remember, there’s a guy by her side whom she knows has her back no matter what, and that counts for so much.”
