Katie Holmes and Bobby Wooten are getting comfortable with their new relationship! The Dawson’s Creek alum, 43, and her musician boyfriend, 33, appeared at the Tribeca premiere of Alone Together on Tuesday at the SVA Theater in New York. At the event, Katie looked summer-ready in a white crochet maxi dress, accessorizing with a tan clutch and matching necklace and bracelet. Her chic dress dropped so low that it obscured her shoes, and she wore her brunette hair down.
Bobby coordinated with a casual white linen shirt look, paired with a casual black jacket. The June 14 appearance comes after Bobby and Katie snuggled up at the red carpet for the Moth Ball‘s 25 Anniversary Gala at Spring Studios in New York, and Katie looked similarly radiant in a sweeping orange, long sleeved dress. The leadup to their official appearances as a couple followed weeks of speculations, during which they were seeing sweetly kissing in New York and news hit that Bobby had met Katie’s mother, Kathy Holmes. All signs point to the union being a serious one, as a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY in April that Katie is “smitten.”
“She is absolutely smitten with Bobby,” the insider revealed. “He is romantic and charming. Katie is allowing herself to feel these feelings and she knows that she is deserving of love. She is open to the possibility of having her happily ever after and although they are in the beginning stages of their romance, he gives her butterflies, which is all that any woman can hope for really.”
According to the source, Katie’s apparently not the only one who is impressed, either. “He has met her family and her friends and has only left a good impression on all of them,” they continued, adding that he’s now met his potential mother-in-law Kathy “multiple times” and “everyone who meets him adores him.” The now-public relationship is a big step for the mom of one, who shares 16-year-old daughter Suri Cruise with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
Katie was previously linked to Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and chef Emilio Vitolo.
