Cameras spotted Katie Holmes in New Orleans this week out on a coffee run, and she was smiling big while wearing a diamond ring on her left hand. Could this mean that the Dawson’s Creek alum is engaged to her boyfriend, Jamie Foxx?
Holmes is in the Big Easy to film her movie The Secret, based on the book of the same name by Rhonda Byrne, but her rep says that the 39-year-old actress is not getting married anytime soon.
“Katie’s not engaged to anyone besides her fictional movie fiancé, played by Jerry O’Connell,” the rep told Page Six.

Holmes and Foxx started dating about five years ago. They were first seen dancing together at Ronald Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons gala in 2013, just one year after she split from Tom Cruise. But the couple has kept their relationship so private, that we don’t know exactly when they started seeing each other.
The couple has stepped out in public a few times together. Earlier this year, they attended Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party. They have also shown more PDA in recent months. In September, Holmes made multiple trips to George to visit Foxx while he filmed the movie Just Mercy, and they were spotted enjoying workouts and bike rides. However, an insider says that the two are still very “careful about being photographed together.”
“Everyone knows they are dating, but they still want to keep it private,” an insider told People Magazine. “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 wore a similar diamond ring on her left hand back in March 2016, causing the engagement rumors to fly. But, her rep at the time insisted that the actress wasn’t married or engaged.

Currently, Foxx is also in New Orleans to shoot the Netflix movie Power, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And, the couple went out for dinner after Holmes’ ring sparked the engagement rumors. They kept things low-key while visiting the French Quarter on Halloween.
Holmes wore a tan jumpsuit with Adidas sneakers, and Foxx wore a black hoodie and sweatpants.
Neither Katie Holmes nor Jamie Foxx has spoken publicly about the relationship.
