Suri Cruise was spotted out and about in New York City celebrating her birthday, and many people are wondering if Tom Cruise sees her these days. Suri’s father, it turned out, was conspicuously absent from her 15th birthday celebrations. Meanwhile, on her daughter’s special day, her mother, Katie Holmes, shared a sweet birthday message.
“Congratulations on your 15th birthday, Sweetheart!” “I love you,” Katie wrote on Instagram, sharing some rare family photos of her daughter. “I can’t believe you’re already fifteen!” Suri, meanwhile, celebrated her 15th birthday with friends in Manhattan on Sunday, April 18. The teen was photographed all over town as she posed for selfies and stopped for ice cream with her friends. Katie, Suri’s mother, was not photographed with Suri and her friends, but she was nearby; the Dawson’s Creek alum gave her daughter some space while she went shopping for birthday presents nearby. But where had Tom gone? The 58-year-old Mission: Impossible star was not in New York City, let alone the same country, on Suri’s birthday.
Suri’s birthday was missed because Tom was in England filming scenes for the seventh installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise with co-star and rumored girlfriend Hayley Atwell. At the time, the two were spotted shooting at a railway in Pickering, North Yorkshire. This comes months after it was reported that filming on Mission: Impossible 7 would wrap in December 2020, following Tom Cruise’s now-famous rant on the M:I7 set, in which he berated staffers for breaking social distancing protocols.
While it’s unclear whether Tom communicated with her daughter on her birthday, one source tells HollywoodLife that Tom “still loves” Suri, before hinting at the status of their relationship. “When he decided to have a family with Katie, Tom never intended to be estranged from his daughter, and he looks forward to repairing the relationship one day,” an insider told the site on Tuesday, April 20. Suri is Tom’s youngest child; he also has two children from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman, which he divorced in 2001 after 11 years of marriage. The couple has a son, Connor, 26, and a daughter, Isabella, 28.
