They have been almost inseparable since going public with their romance early last month.
And Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr were together again on Thursday as they headed to a date in New York.
The 41-year-old The Secret actress looked chic in a gray plaid skirt as she joined hands with the 33-year-old chef as she strolled through town.

Katie’s skirt showcased her toned legs and she paired it with a pale blue striped shirt with several undone buttons.
The 5-foot-9 Batman Begins actress stood in pointed black suede boots and was accessorized with a black bucket-shaped handbag.
She also brought an acid-washed denim jacket for the cool evening air.
Emilio was dressed in a burgundy sweater with gray pants and brown leather boots.

The lovebirds have both done their part to slow the spread of the new coronavirus by wearing black masks.
After an early evening outing, the couple returned to Katie’s apartment at sunset.
While their relationship is evolving rapidly, a source close to Katie told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month that she is “ playing by her own rules. ”
“ They love each other and can’t get enough of each other, ” the source said of the couple.

They also confirmed that Katie and Emilio first met almost a year ago in the fall of 2019, but it wasn’t until this year that they started dating.
“ In the past it seemed like Katie was sort of molding the lifestyle of her partners, ” the insider continued, “ But with Emilio, Katie is so authentically herself. ”
Katie’s approach to romance doesn’t seem to have appreciated her from Emilio’s mother, Lourdes, as Page Six reported earlier this month that she was upset over their relationship.
DailyMail.com exclusively confirmed on September 10 that Emilio, 33, had broken off his previous engagement to his fiancee Rachel Emmons, 24, via text message when beautiful photos of him and Holmes, 41, were posted for the first time.
The handbag designer, who had been engaged to the restaurateur for 18 months, was shocked and confused and had to return home.

‘[Lourdes] thinks she raised him better than that, ” an insider said. ‘She didn’t like how [Emilio] handled that at all.
However, another source painted a less rosy picture of Vitolo and Emmons’ relationship.
“ He and his fiancee were taking things slowly, and it wasn’t working, ” they said.
According to them, someone like Katie is more her speed.
“He likes older women,” they continued. “ He went out with an older anchor at Fox and others so he has a history with older women. ”
Getting Comfortable: Emilio and Katie were first linked on September 1, while on a date at the Mediterranean restaurant Antique Garage in SoHo; shown October 15th
Emilio and his actress girlfriend were first linked on September 1, during an apparent date at the Mediterranean restaurant Antique Garage in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood.
But the romantic nature of their relationship was revealed later in the week, when they were seen kissing passionately at Peasant Restaurant in Manhattan.
The relationship appears to be a big change from Katie’s previous MO, as she has been openly open about her new boyfriend.
In contrast, she started dating fellow actor Jamie Foxx, 52, in 2013, but the two kept their relationship private for years until they went public at the Met Gala in May 2019, few time before they break up.

Prior to partnering with Foxx, Holmes was married to Hollywood icon Tom Cruise.
The couple began their lit courtship in 2005 and married in seven weeks.
Katie filed for divorce in 2012, which was finalized after just ten days.
She and Cruise welcomed their daughter Suri in 2006, who now spends her time with Katie, who has primary custody.
