Suri Cruise Is Mom Katie Holmes’ Mini-Me! See the Teen Grow Up Through the Years

It seems like just yesterday when Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise announced they were officially the parents of a newborn baby girl, Suri Cruise, in April 2006. Since then, we’ve been watching the teen grow up right before our very eyes.

There’s no doubt she is one of the most beloved celebrity kids around, considering fans have been obsessed with the mother-daughter duo’s sweet outings and public appearances. Even more so, they admire the bond that Katie, 40, and her mini-me share.

In March 2017, the Dawson’s Creek alum — who suffered through a messy divorce battle with the Mission Impossible star in 2012 — made it clear she considers Suri her No. 1 priority. “My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now,” the brunette beauty once gushed to Town & Country magazine. “It’s very important that I’m present, and she has a stable, innocent childhood.”

Considering Katie and Suri are as thick as thieves, we have no doubt that the proud mom is giving her the best upbringing possible. After all, the actress said her “biggest goal” in life is to empower her daughter to be the best person she can be.

“I love her so much,” Katie, 41, gushed to InStyle on Wednesday, March 11. “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.”

So far, the Jack and Jill star has been doing an incredible job! When Katie looks at Suri, she’s proud of the person she sees. “She came out very strong,” Katie said. “She’s always been a strong personality. She’ll pick an activity and work her butt off until she’s really good at it. Then she’s like, ‘OK, I’m going to try the next thing.’ She’s very focused and a hard worker.”

Like mother, like daughter!
