They’re official!

Katy Perry and John Mayer made their red carpet debut for the premiere of Broadway’s A Christmas Story: The Musical in New York City on Wednesday. The Manhattan event marks the couple’s first official appearance together.

The singers looked smitten as they posed for pictures with cast members, the show’s composers, and even Santa Claus himself. The two were joined by Mayer’s father at an after-play dinner at Sardi’s in Manhattan’s Theater District.

Perry and Mayer have been quietly dating since July, with a short break back in August and again in early October.

But the “Wide Awake” singer was by her man’s side as he celebrated his 35th birthday in New York City in October. The two shared a romantic meal at Freeman’s on the Lower East Side before dancing the night away at hot-spot The Box.

But Perry is cautious about where things are going with the unlucky-in-love crooner.

“She doesn’t want to get her heart broken again, but she feels a real connection and wants to see where things go with Mayer,” a source told Us Magazine.

Perry divorced comedian Russell Brand earlier this year, and dated Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd for a short while in the spring.

What do you think of Perry and Mayer making it official?
