Kate Holmes called boyfriend Emilio Vitolo “my love” in a new Instagram share, thereby making their relationship Instagram official after he shared a black and white photograph of the couple captured in a lighthearted moment in honor of her birthday.

In the snapshot, which was posted to the chef’s social media page, he and the actress were seen laughing.

He was seated in a chair in the image. Emilio wore a white, long-sleeved shirt and it appeared that Katie was seated atop his leg. Her beautiful body was displayed in a light-colored tank dress. This casual look was accented with a large, oval-shaped drop pendant. Her dark tresses were tied in a messy knot atop her head. Both smiled at each other affectionately.

It appeared that the duo was inside a restaurant for the photograph.

Emilio, 33, used the caption to express his feelings for Katie, who turned 42 on December 18. He admired her for several key reasons and said he loved her.

In the comments section of the share, Katie also expressed her affection for her boyfriend of four months.

“Thank you so much, my Love, I love u too!!!!!” she posted with a series of four red emoji hearts alongside her statement.
