Does Katie Holmes's daughter Suri want to stay with her dad Tom Cruise as she turns 14?
Suri celebrated her 14th birthday on April 18 and is allegedly wanting to connect with her estranged father Tom Cruise
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's daughter Suri turns 14 on Saturday, April 18.
To celebrate her daughter's special day, Holmes shared a photo on Instagram with the caption, "I am so blessed to be your mom. May this year be incredible!" The photo showed a birthday banner decorated with some fresh flowers.
Speaking to InStyle earlier, Holmes had opened up about her daughter. "I love her so much. My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it. She came out very strong—she's always been a strong personality. She'll pick an activity and work her butt off until she's really good at it," she shared.
"Then she's like, "OK, I'm going to try the next thing." She's very focused and a hard worker," she revealed.
As per New Idea, In Touch Weekly had reported that a source revealed that Suri's father, Tom Cruise, had reached out to his daughter late last year. It is believed that Cruise saw Suri's latest pictures and felt that he wanted to be involved in his daughter's life.
"He saw a photo of Suri looking all grown up, and it changed everything. With Katie single again, and Suri not having a father figure in her life, it’s the perfect opportunity to reach out," the source shared. It is not known how Holmes feels about the reunion.
Suri and her father have had an estranged relationship for a long time and had stopped seeing each other after Holmes had filed for divorce in 2012.
According to a report by Star magazine, the father-daughter duo had a very emotional reunion after being separated for six years.
It was reported that Suri had allegedly attempted to reach out to her father many times but there had been no response until one day she received an email from her father asking to meet though this remains unconfirmed.
According to The Innersane, "There’s his acting world and his religious 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. Suri only has one father—and that’s Tom," an anonymous source revealed.
Holmes also opened up on how Suri was one of the most photographed kids in the world. "I have to say, I did recently see some fansite [about her] posted when she was a baby, and it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little," she said.
"I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, 6 in the morning when nobody would see us. But there's one video where I'm holding her — she was 2 at the time — and she starts waving at the cameras. She's pretty special," she continued.
Holmes started dating Tom Cruise in April 2005 and they got engaged in June 2005. Suri Cruise was born on April 18, 2006.
