Katie Holmes and her new boyfriend Bobby Wooten III make their red carpet debut.
Katie Holmes and her new boyfriend, Bobby Wooten III, made their red carpet debut as a couple.
The actress, 43, and the musician, 33, attended the Moth Ball 25th anniversary gala on Thursday night at Spring Studios in New York City.
Holmes, who wore an orange dress, and Wooten, in a green suit, snuggled together as they posed for photographers at the event. They complemented their appearance with wide smiles.
The couple’s Manhattan outing comes a month after they confirmed their romance with a PDA-filled stroll through Central Park.
The “Dawson’s Creek” alum and the Grammy-nominated songwriter were seen sharing a passionate kiss during their daytime date. At one point, Holmes even reached into the back of Wooten’s pants.
Wooten has already met Holmes’s mother, Kathy, who joined them in the park. The lovebirds were seen chatting with her between kisses.
This marks Holmes’s first public relationship since splitting from chef Emilio Vitolo Jr. in May 2021.
Holmes and Vitolo, 34, were apparently inseparable during their eight-month relationship and were frequently photographed kissing all over the Big Apple, including their beloved Central Park.
“Katie has a lot of big priorities in her life,” a source told us at the time, explaining why Holmes ended up with the famous restaurateur despite their chemistry.
“She is a single mother, her daughter [Suri] always comes first, and things were moving really fast,” the source added.
Prior to Vitolo, Holmes dated Jamie Foxx for six years and was married to Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012. She shares Suri, 16, with the “Top Gun” actor, 59.
