The black and white photo captured the loving essence of the couple. Sumpter was pictured looking classy in a long-sleeved denim shirt and peaked cap.

The "Ride Along" actress' long dark hair fell below her shoulders while her face was illuminated by a huge smile as she wrapped her arms around James from behind.


James, dressed in a dark-colored T-shirt, rocked a jubilant smile under his rugged hairy face. He also had his arms rested on Sumpter's while holding a cellphone in the other hand. The post was captioned:

"Merry merry and happy everything. From mine to you and yours."
