Fresh after announcing his divorce from his wife of more than two decades, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was spotted entering the parents' home of his new girlfriend, his former spokeswoman Lis Smith, on Wednesday morning.

The New York Post reported that its photographer captured images of Spitzer and Smith — "with Christmas gifts in hand" — going into the home in Bronxville, just north of New York City, for a holiday party.

Smith, 31, currently communications director for Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, the Post reports.

"Both he and Smith were seen clutching a bevy of gifts as they entered the home and were joined by a parade of other Christmas revelers arriving in glossy sedans," the Post reports.

Spitzer, 54, "waved at a Post reporter" but declined to answer questions.

On Tuesday, Spitzer and his estranged wife, Silda Wall Spitzer, said in a statement, "We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end."

Married in 1987, they have three adult children.

Mrs. Spitzer was with her husband when was elected state attorney general in 1999 and governor eight years later. She also attended a news conference with him after he admitted to paying for sex with prostitutes in 2008. The scandal forced him to resign that year.

Spitzer re-entered politics earlier this year, after a hosting a talk show on MSNBC that failed, only to lose in the Democratic primary in his race for New York comptroller.

Mrs. Spitzer did not campaign for him. The couple reportedly had been living apart for months — and news reports of Spitzer's relationship with Smith surfaced on Monday in the New York Daily News.
