Katie Holmes’ ex Emilio Vitolo Jr. welcomes his first baby with girlfriend Sammy


July 3, 2023 | 6:26am

Emilio Vitolo Jr. and his girlfriend, Sammy Piccininni, are parents!

The chef’s partner gave birth to their first child, a baby girl, on Friday.

“I’m in awe of how God has blessed us,” the new mom captioned Angelina’s Instagram debut on Sunday. “Mommy and Daddy are so in love with you baby girl.”

Vitolo Jr. commented, “My gorgeous girls😍😍 good job baby . I love you ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.”

The milestone moment comes two years after he and Katie Holmes ended their high-profile romance.

The former couple were first linked in 2020, showing PDA on multiple New York City outings before calling it quits.

The restaurateur kept his relationship with Piccininni quieter.

He waited to debut their romance — as well as the expectant star’s baby bump — in a January pregnancy announcement.

“Half of me & half of you 💕,” the duo captioned the joint Instagram post. “we’re having a baby girl💕.”

Vitolo Jr., who held sonogram shots in the carousel, joked in the comments that he was going to be a “real papaaaaa now 😂.”

Piccininni seemingly began dating the chef in 2022.

The loved-up snaps were taken at a sex reveal party, complete with a blue and pink frosted “He or She?” cake.

After the bash, the Emilio’s Ballato owner received a slew of supportive comments from his friends, from actor Jerry O’Connell to “Real World” alum Jamie Chung.

It is unclear when Vitolo Jr. and Piccininni began seeing each other, although she did post pictures of them attending events together in August and November 2022.

A source told Page Six that Vitolo Jr. returned to dating apps the same month that he split from Holmes.

“It’s not just Raya — he’s on a bunch,” the insider revealed in May 2021. “He didn’t exactly hide the fact that he’s broken up from Katie.”

The 44-year-old actress moved on as well, dating Bobby Wooten III before reportedly splitting from the musician last year.
