The couple were first linked in September when they were spotted out to dinner together in New York City. The pair have been going strong ever since and despite “some concern” for her loved ones, the source said that Holmes isn’t afraid of how fast the relationship has blossomed.

“In her mind, this is the real deal,” the insider added. “They’re riding a beautiful wave together and she’s already decided it’s got the potential to go all the way.”
