Katie Holmes Fuels Jamie Foxx Engagement Rumors While Wearing Diamond Ring

Tongues wagged on Wednesday when 39-year-old Katie Holmes was photographed wearing what appeared to be a large diamond ring. Despite the fact she had it on her left pinkie finger rather than her ring finger, people immediately seemed to wonder if the actress and her beau Jamie Foxx had finally gotten engaged.

People reports that Holmes was spotted out in New Orleans on a break from filming, and seemed to be smiling at her phone as she walked along with her coffee in hand. Despite the baggy grey T-shirt, it was the sparkler on her left hand that received the most attention.

Unfortunately for fans of Holmes and Foxx, it appears that there aren't quite wedding bells just yet, with a rep for Holmes confirming that despite the jewel, it's not an engagement ring the actress is wearing.

"Katie's not engaged to anyone besides her fictional movie fiancé, played by Jerry O'Connell."

Back in May, a source close to the couple shared with People that Holmes and Foxx are still trying to be careful about being photographed together.

"Everyone knows they are dating, but they still want to keep it private. After the beach pictures, they only spent time together at home and got extra careful. But this year, they have been more social together. They often go to restaurants for dinner dates, or to hang out with friends."

Holmes is currently filming The Secret about the power of positive thinking based on the book of the same name.
