Caitlin O’Connor, 34, and Joe Manganiello, 47, are Instagram official! Joe took to Instagram on Sunday, January 18, to share a carousel of pics — and among them was a sweet selfie of the couple snuggling up for Valentine’s Day. Another pic showed Caitlin in a scorching red mini dress eating Valentine’s chocolates in front of a massive bouquet of red roses, and yet another showed Joe in a sharp suit, ready to go out on the town.

“Celebrated Valentine’s Day with Tool & Caitlin…” he captioned the post in part, solidifying the public nature of the romance. The duo previously made their red-carpet debut on Saturday, December 9, at the Children of Armenia Fund (COAF) gala at New York’s Cipriani 25 Broadway restaurant in photos from Us Weekly. Joe wrapped his arm around the Winning Time star as they smiled for cameras at the event.

The red-carpet debut came just three months after they were seen outside a gym in Venice, CA on September 13, 2023, (see PHOTOS HERE). The blonde beauty looked chic and sporty in black leggings and a long-sleeved blue crop top. Meanwhile, Joe rocked a white tank top and army-print shorts. The outing came about two months following Joe’s split from actress Sofía Vergara, 51, after eight years of marriage.
