Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr.’s romance is now blossoming, and she is even comparing it to the love she had with Chris Klein.
Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo Jr. are often seen out and about, showing major PDA. Now that their relationship is thriving, a source said the 41-year-old actress is ready to “let loose” a little more.
The effect of Holmes’ new relationship on her
Holmes and Vitolo’s relationship is said to be getting more serious. However, she has no plans to put any pressure on herself or her newfound boyfriend.
All she wants is to enjoy every moment of it, giving her a “new lease on love.”
“Emilio actually makes Katie feel young again,” a source told HollywoodLife. “The relationship they have reminds her of the relationship she had with Chris Klein.”
Holmes and Klein were engaged in 2003 but parted ways in 2005. Despite their breakup, Tom Cruise’s ex-wife saw a lot of positivity in their ended romance.
“That was a relationship that was filled with love and was very easy,” the insider continued.
Distance and her busy schedule working on Dawson’s Creek affected her then romance with Klein. However, it taught her a lot that she applied to her other relationships.
The difference between the past and current romances of Katie Holmes
However, compared to Klein, Vitolo isn’t a big movie star. A source described him as “very down to earth and funny.”
Holmes’ new romance doesn’t have any baggage but just an extra layer of “being a Hollywood celebrity.” It’s not like her past romances with Cruise and Jamie Foxx.
The Batman Begins star and Cruise’s relationship was highly publicized from when they tied the knot until their divorce.
Alternatively, her next romance with the 52-year-old singer-songwriter was very private.
Now that her daughter, Suri, is already 14, Holmes feels like she can “let loose a little more” with her affair with Vitolo.
“So she really likes that she can hold hands, make out and just be herself with Emilio,” the source continued. “That is what is making her smitten and happy with the situation.”
Although their romance is relatively new, “it’s going well.”
“She hasn’t been this happy in a while,” the tipster confirmed. “She’s having fun and seizing the moment and living for herself.”
Alternatively, Vitolo is equally crazy about her. Although he’s busy at work, he makes sure to talk to her every free minute he has.
Holmes, Vitolo’s public dates
Holmes and Vitolo are often seen going on dates. Recently, they were spotted sharing a sweet kiss in New York City while having a meal together.
They also proudly showed their love as they walked the streets of NYC holding hands.
“She seems very into him,” a different source told People about Katie Holmes. “He can’t get enough of her attention.”
