Katie Holmes is reportedly dating jazz musician Peter Cincotti, and he has already been given the seal of approval by her friends.
The 34-year-old actress - who has been single since her marriage to Tom Cruise ended nine months ago - has been on a string of dates with Peter Cincotti, 29, though have been arriving and leaving venues separately to avoid raising suspicion.
A source said: "It's early days but Katie and Peter have been on quite a few dates. They met up two weeks ago at the New York Observer's 25th anniversary party. They have a lot in common - he's a total stage buff."
The couple have known each other for a few years but only started dating recently, though the singer-and-pianist has already been given the seal of approval by the former Dawson's Creek star's friends.
The source added to Grazia magazine: "They have only been seeing each other a few weeks but he's incredibly charming, the type to buy her flowers and treat her like a lady.
"Katie's had a few dates but nothing came of them. But her friends are happy she is seeing Peter, they think he could be a good fit."
As well as a new romance, Katie - who has six-year-old daughter Suri with Tom - is said to be looking for a new home as the lease on her New York apartment will soon be up.
The source said: "This could be the perfect time for Katie to really work out what she wants from life."
Though Katie's representatives denied she and Peter were planning a musical collaboration, they said only "no comment" when asked if they were dating.
