Suri Cruise Through the Years: See How Much Katie and Tom’s Daughter Has Grown Up!

Time flies! Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes welcomed their daughter, Suri Cruise, into the world back in April 2006 and fans have watched her transform from a precious toddler to a trendsetting teenager.

Katie raved about Suri’s incredible personality during candid interviews, calling her daughter “a great girl” with a big heart. In March, the Dawson’s Creek alum revealed her “biggest goal” is to mold her daughter into a self-sufficient young woman. Katie aims to “nurture her into her individuality” and to ensure “she is 100 percent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it,” she told InStyle magazine.

The single mom also revealed her little girl already has a pretty solid work ethic. “She’s always been a strong personality. She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it,” the proud mama explained to the outlet. “Then she’s like, ‘OK, I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker.”

While Katie and Suri are just fine on their own, the mom would like her daughter to have a paternal presence in her life. “Her No. 1 priority is meeting someone who can build a strong relationship with Suri,” a source exclusively told In Touch in October 2019, shortly after the beauty’s split from longtime boyfriend Jamie Foxx. “If they don’t tick that box, Katie’s just not interested.”

Suri and Tom have not been photographed together since 2013, and Katie would like to find a man who will fill that void. “So now Katie will only get serious with a guy who she knows will be there for her daughter.” Although she is “definitely not at the stage where she needs to start swiping” in order to “Mr. Right” the actress is not going to settle for just anyone.

Even though the preteen remains out of the spotlight for the most part, she is often seen out and about with her famous mom in New York City. Suri has proven to be quite the fashionista with her street style, and it looks like she already has some exciting career aspirations for the future.
