The couple, who are vacationing around the Mediterranean, were caught sharing an affectionate kiss as they rode a ferry to and from the tony Italian town. Packer, 47, a media mogul, held tight to Carey’s hand as they explored the famed vacation spot. The singer, 45, wore a patterned maxi dress for the stroll, pairing the longsleeve gown with cork wedges and big sunglasses. Carey’s windswept, curly hair added to the relaxed vibe. Mariah Carey: Her Changing Looks Packer looked sailing-chic in a white polo shirt and matching white pants. The couple was spotted last weekend with their respective children (Carey’s 4-year-old twins with ex Nick Cannon, and Parker’s three children with ex Erica Baxter) in Capri, an island off the Southern coast of Italy. A source close to Carey told PEOPLE the couple is “enjoying spending time with each other,” while a Packer source said the “brand new” relationship has “been bubbling for a couple of months.” Cannon divorced Cannon in 2014, while Packer, who’s been married twice, split from wife Baxter in 2013.
