Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes are a “really great” couple, his daughter, Corinne, said this week.
“They are so great and Katie is always so chic. They were wonderful,” Corinne, 25, told People magazine about the pair. The couple made an appearance at the 2019 Met Gala this year.
“[It was] my dad’s first Met Gala,” she added.
Holmes, 40, and Foxx, 51, have long been rumored to be a couple. They made it official when they posed at the Met Gala several weeks ago in New York City.
“They’re really good, really great,” Corinne said of Foxx and Holmes.
The actors have reportedly been dating for six years but have never officially confirmed their romance.
A source said of the relationship, “They’re starting to be more comfortable about their relationship. They’d both been in public relationships before. They care about each other a lot and they tried to stay as quiet as possible because they didn’t want to ruin that … Jamie brings a lot of joy and happiness into her life. They’ve definitely become more serious.”
According to CNN, at the Met Gala, Holmes wore a custom Zac Posen gown that was made of 300 yards of multilayered, hand-sewn colored tulle. She also had Lorraine Schwartz jewelry along with a Tyler Ellis clutch.
Holmes has been divorced from “Mission: Impossible” star Tom Cruise since 2012. They have a daughter, Suri, who turned 13 recently.
