“Chicago Med” star Torrey DeVitto is keeping it hometown, making her relationship with Chicago Cubs manager David Ross Instagram official on Sunday.
DeVitto, who plays emergency pediatrics specialist Dr. Natalie Manning on the Chicago-based NBC drama, confirmed the news on Instagram Sunday, posting a Ross-taken smooch selfie, kissing his cheek in the black-and-white photo.
“Love him madly,” she wrote with a red heart emoji. Ross, 44, liked the photo via his Instagram account.
The actress, 36, had previously teased the news of the relationship last week after attending a Cubs game in Cincinnati against the Reds. In a photo of Cincinnati sights, DeVitto included a final photo of Ross from behind the dugout, drawing a squiggly red heart around his head. She included the hashtag #SaveTheBestForLast.
The former catcher and World Series hero Ross, 44, ensured he will never have to pay for a drink again in Chicago after hitting a Game 7 World Series home run against the Cleveland Indians, making him the oldest player to do so in World Series history. The Cubs went on to win the game 8-7 in 10 innings.
Ross appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2017, and his 23-year-old partner, Lindsay Arnold, improbably finished runner-up in the entire competition. He is divorced from his high school sweetheart, Hyla Ross, with whom he has three children.
Born and raised in Huntington, N.Y., DeVitto is best known for her recurring roles, including Melissa Hastings in “Pretty Little Liars” (2010-17), Dr. Meredith Fell in the CW drama “The Vampire Diaries” and as Carrie in the CW drama “One Tree Hill.” In 2013, she was seen as Maggie Hall in the final season of Lifetime’s “Army Wives.”
On “Chicago Med,” Dr. Natalie Manning is single after moving on from her complicated relationship with Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss).
DeVitto’s representatives have not commented further on the posting.
