She’s all grown up! Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise‘s daughter, Suri Cruise, is 14 years old! The former duo’s only child turned a year older on Saturday, April 18. To commemorate the big moment, the former “Dawson’s Creek” actress left a sweet message to their daughter on social media showing DIY decorations for Suri’s at-home birthday. Leaving a sweet birthday tribute to her daughter, Katie Holmes posted an adorable snap of their homemade banner that read “Happy Birthday” and was held up with a branch from outside.
The banner also featured an array of hanging flowers including red and pale pink roses, as well as a fairy. Pairing the birthday snap with a message from her mommy, Suri Cruise’s famous mom wrote, “Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!!!!!” The “Dawson’s Creek” alumni called herself “so blessed to be your mom,” while adding, “May this year be incredible! ????.” While Suri Cruise is like many and celebrating her birthday at home instead of having an elaborate birthday party, it appears her mom went all out to ensure her special day was perfect.
Katie Holmes has an unbreakable bond with her teenage daughter and the actress works hard to make sure Suri has the most normal life possible. Tom Cruise and Kate Holmes welcomed their daughter in 2006, just six months after the then-couple tied the knot. Their marriage lasted for six years before the actress filed for divorce in 2012. It was finalized two weeks later. It’s believed that the “Mission: Impossible” star has zero interaction with Suri reportedly due to his involvement in Scientology. Tom Cruise hasn’t been photographed with his daughter since 2013.
In an interview with In Style last month, Katie Holmes confessed how hard their divorce was, especially as a single parent. “That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. [Suri and I] had some funny moments out and about in public,” she told the outlet. According to New Idea, a source told In Touch that Tom Cruise admitted “he made mistakes” back then and his relationship with Suri isn’t over. “There’s his acting world and his religion world, but there’s also this huge missing piece: Suri. I truly believe he wants a relationship with her and that they will be close again. At the end of the day, Suri only has one father – and that’s Tom,” the source reportedly told the outlet.
