Katie Holmes on Daughter Suri Cruise: “It’s Really Important to Me to Be a Mom That Is Dependable”


So sweet!

Katie Holmes gushed about life with her 11-year-old daughter, Suri Cruise in a recent candid interview — and revealed being a good mom is her No. 1 priority.

“When I’m not on set, I’m being a mom. I’m doing mom stuff,” the 38-year-old actress told Modern Luxury. “When I go to an event, I leave at 10 pm because it’s really important to me to be a mom that is dependable.”

“I think the most important thing in my life is giving my child the childhood I want her to have,” she continued. “That comes first. That dictates where I work and when I work because it’s my main job right now.”

Katie welcomed Suri with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, 54, in April 2006. The former couple was previously married from 2006 until 2012.

Katie added in another interview, “This business is so unstable, and you never really know where you’re going to be… My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now.”

“It’s very important that I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood. I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there’s nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed.”
