In Touch has exclusively learned that it’s been more than 1,381 days since the actor, 54, last saw his daughter, 11, after failing to spend another Father’s Day without his youngest child (whose mom is actress Katie Holmes).
This is especially shocking considering earlier this year, an insider exclusively told In Touch that Tom was hopeful for a reconciliation with his daughter, who has been out of his life since her parents bombshell divorce and her mother’s decision to leave Scientology. His decision to reconcile with his daughter was paired with his decision to marry for the fourth time.
“Tom has steered clear of Suri because of Katie and didn’t feel he’d be able to come back into Suri’s life until she was in college and away from Katie,” a source close to the Mission Impossible actor previously told In Touch. “But now that he’s in hot pursuit of a new wife, he wants Suri back in his life. He misses having a family.”
He’s made it clear that his daughter’s been on his mind — even if he has yet to see her; while doing press for The Mummy, a reporter asked Tom if his daughter caught the acting bug like her parents. He told the reporter “you never know,” but the source said that the question sparked something in the father-of-three.
“The reporter’s question triggered something in Tom and made him want to reconnect with Suri even more,” the source told In Touch exclusively. “It’s happening.”
Hopefully it’ll happen before next Father’s Day!
