Katie Holmes, the actress best known for her roles in Dawson’s Creek, Batman Begins, and The Kennedys has had a busy year in 2023. After splitting from her boyfriend of eight months, Bobby Wooten III, in December 2022, she has been linked to two other men in the following months. But who is she dating now? Here is everything you need to know about her love life in 2023.
Is Katie Holmes Single or Dating Someone Now?
According to the latest reports, Holmes is still single and not mingling with anyone. She focuses on her career and her daughter Suri Cruise, whom she shares with her ex-husband Tom Cruise. Holmes has several projects lined up for 2023, including the thriller The Watergate Girl, based on the memoir of former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks; the romantic comedy The Secret: Dare to Dream, co-starring Josh Lucas; and the drama Coda, co-starring Patrick Stewart.
Holmes has also been spending quality time with Suri, who turned 17 in April 2023. The mother-daughter duo are often seen out and about in New York City, where they live. They enjoy shopping, dining, biking, and attending events together. Holmes has also supported Suri’s interests and hobbies, such as art and photography.
Holmes has previously said that she is proud of Suri and how she has grown up to be a strong and independent young woman. “She came out very strong — she’s always been a strong personality,” Holmes told Today in 2019. “She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it. Then she’s like ‘OK I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker.”
Holmes has also said that she is happy with her life and grateful for everything she has. “I feel very blessed and very lucky to have the opportunities that I have,” she told Elle UK in 2020. “I’m trying to make the most of this time and the opportunities that I have and do the best I can.”
How Did Katie Holmes and Bobby Wooten III Meet and Break Up?
Holmes and Wooten, a Grammy-nominated musician and composer who plays bass in Moulin Rouge! The Musical on Broadway made their red carpet debut as a couple in May 2022. They attended the Moth Ball’s 25th Anniversary Gala in New York City, where they looked happy and cozy together. Wooten even presented an award to singer-songwriter David Byrne, whom he worked with on the Broadway recording of American Utopia.
The couple confirmed their romance with a PDA-packed stroll through Central Park in April 2022, where they were seen kissing and hugging. Holmes also introduced Wooten to her mother, Kathy, who joined them in the park. A source close to Holmes told E! News that they were introduced through friends, and their relationship was “working well”. “Katie is excited about seeing someone and is very happy,” the source said. “She enjoys having someone in her life, and he is very kind and good to her.”
However, their relationship did not last long. In December 2022, Us Weekly reported that Holmes and Wooten had broken up after eight months. “Katie and Bobby broke up last week; she’s no longer [talking] about him to his friends,” an insider told the outlet. “They just didn’t work out together for the long run.”
