A source told Us Weekly that the couple is acting like young teenagers in love whenever they’re together. “Emilio lights up when she enters his restaurant and they kiss and hug like they haven’t seen each other in forever, but really they see each other almost every day.”
The insider also said, “Emilio is into Katie. Whenever he’s asked about her, he blushes and smiles. They are always laughing when they’re together. It’s constant smiles and loving looks between them and Emilio’s friends more than approve of Katie. They think she’s so great for him.”
In addition, the chef recently introduced the 41-year-old actress to his father, Emilio Vitolo Sr. The source explained, “Emilio Sr. met Katie last week and they seemed to get along great. Katie was making him laugh and Emilio Sr. seemed very happy with Katie as well.”
The couple first sparked roman rumours when they were spotted having dinner in NYC last September. Later that same month, they were seen kissing each other on a bench in Central Park.
Another source told Us that time that the Dawson’s Creek alum is head over heels in love with the chef adding, “She has wanted a stable guy in her life for a while and has found that with him.”
The couple has been spotted several times the past few weeks. They were first spotted on a dinner date at Antique Garage in Manhattan on September 1. On September 6, she was again seen dining with the chef at Peasant restaurant, this time she was sitting on his lap. They were seen holding hands while walking on September 21 and on October 1; they were seen walking together in matching T-shirts and sneakers.- Advertisement -
