The Parts Unknown host and the Italian actress made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at the annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday. Bourdain’s hit CNN show was nominated in five categories—and though he didn’t bring home a win, the night was still a success in his eyes.
“Best Emmys ever,” he wrote on a photo of the couple dressed to the nines. Argento retweeted the sentiment and also shared an adorable photo of herself looking into Bourdain’s eyes on the carpet captioned with lyrics from Tammy Wynette’s “Stand By Your Man.”
“Stand by your man. Show the world you love him. Keep giving all the love you can. Stand by your man,” she wrote.
The mom of two wore a black, beaded Elie Saab gown for the occasion with Bernard Delettrez jewels and a Quattropiume clutch, while Bourdain—who split from wife, MMA fighter Ottavia Busia, last year—looked dapper in a classic black tux.

The couple first sparked rumors of romance in February when they were spotting together in Rome, but Bourdain had also previously expressed his affection for Argento on the last season of Parts Unknown, where he called her to “the truly magnificent Asia Argento.”
They publicly acknowledged their relationship in May when the avid traveler shared a cuddly photo with Argento on Instagram.
