Tom Cruise was "super excited" to spend Thanksgiving with his daughter Suri.
The 50-year-old actor has been working on All You Need Is Kill in London and hadn't seen his six-year-old daughter - who lives in New York with her mother Katie Holmes - in over three months and Tom was thrilled when Suri flew to the UK so they could spend the holiday together.
"He's super excited about the visit," a source told People.
Tom sent a family member to New York to pick up Suri and a friend added to Usmagazine.com, "It's the first time he's seen Suri in a long time."
Meanwhile, Katie, 33, who had the day off from her Broadway play Dead Accounts spent the holiday with her family in her native Ohio.
Katie Holmes is reportedly planning to adopt a little girl.
The Dead Accounts Broadway actress is said to be eager for their six-year-old biological daughter Suri to have another sibling and is looking into adoption. A source close to the 33-year-old actress told Star, "Suri has been asking for a sister lately - she's even praying for one at night, which tugs at Katie's heart. Her goal is to have a new addition to their family within the next year."
The insider claims that although Katie has only just begun looking into the process, she has already consulted a high-end adoption agency and would prefer to adopt a two-year-old toddler in need of a home rather than a newborn.
Meanwhile, Kate is rumoured to be spending Thanksgiving with her ex-husband next Thursday as she thinks it is in their daughter's best interest. "Tom and Katie are determined to show Suri that they're still friends and devoted parents. They know it will mean so much for her, and both are happy to swallow their pride to make sure she has a fun holiday. Thanksgiving has always been a really big deal for them," a source said at the time.
Katie Holmes will reportedly spend Thanksgiving with Tom Cruise.
The Dead Accounts Broadway star - who split from the Mission: Impossible actor in June after six years of marriage - is said to be eager for their six-year-old daughter Suri to enjoy the holiday with both of her parents and is preparing to fly to a luxury ski resort in Telluride, Colorado with her ex-husband later this month.
"Tom and Katie are determined to show Suri that they're still friends and devoted parents. They know it will mean so much for her, and both are happy to swallow their pride to make sure she has a fun holiday. Thanksgiving has always been a really big deal for them," a source said.
Earlier this week a source close to the 33-year-old actress revealed she has never been happier. "Katie's happy, she's a totally new person," the insider said. The actress is currently starring on Broadway and makes sure to work her schedule around her daughter. "Most performances are in the evening so Katie can have an early dinner with Suri," the insider added.
Tom Cruise is getting special treatment from Scientology leaders.
The 50-year-old actor has allegedly been granted exclusive visitation privileges to see his daughter Suri since his divorce from Katie Holmes thanks to his A-list status, despite Scientology normally banning members from contacting those who have left the church.
Nancy Many, ex-president of the religion's Celebrity Center, told RadarOnline, "They have already bent the rules for Tom. If Tom was any other Scientologist, including lesser celebrities, he would not be allowed to continue seeing and maintaining communication with Katie or Suri, because they are no longer in Scientology. So far, because of who he is, Cruise has spent time with Suri, which has already upset the parents and children of existing Scientologists who can't talk to their loved ones. If he is supposed to be a Scientologist, why don't the rules for every other member apply to him?"
The Mission Impossible actor hasn't seen Suri, 6, since their fun-filled trip to Disney World on August 5, and even missed her first day of school due to filming new action flick All You Need Is Kill in London.
Tom Cruise misses daughter Suri "very much."
The 50-year-old actor is currently in Europe filming new movie All You Need Is Kill, while the six-year-old tot is in New York with her mother and Tom's ex-wife Katie Holmes, and the distance is starting to take its toll on Tom.
"Tom talks to Suri several times a day. He misses Suri very much. Tom and Suri are very, very close. He's up on everything that's going on in her life," a source close to Tom told People.
Tom's attorney Bert Fields recently revealed the Rock of Ages star was calling Suri twice a day as he wants to play a big part in her life. "Tom has been in England shooting a film. He calls Suri every day, sometimes twice a day. He loves Suri and is a constant presence in her life. As in the past, when he's shooting in a foreign country, he has to rely on daily phone calls," he said.
Katie Holmes is finding it hard not to give daughter Suri everything she wants.
The former Dawson's Creek actress - who was given primary custody of the six-year-old tot as part of her divorce settlement from ex-husband Tom Cruise - knows it's important Suri is not spoiled but has told friends it's not easy telling her no because Tom is happy to indulge in his daughter's every whim.
"She said the divorce has been hard on Suri and she's acting out. Katie says no to some things, but gives a little leeway. She knows Tom is going to spoil her," one friend said.
While Katie wants Suri to stay grounded, it was recently revealed Tom had set up a "sizeable trust fund" for the little girl. The Top Gun actor - who is giving his former spouse $400,000 per year in child support until Suri turns 18 - has created the additional payment plan for the youngster upon Katie's request, although the youngster will be unable to fully legally claim the money until she's in her 30s.
Cash-strapped Katie Holmes is considering charging for personal appearances.
The 33-year-old actress - who chose not to take a huge payout following the breakdown of her marriage to Tom Cruise - has been looking in to ways to make money since the split with paid for appearances just one option.
"People are putting the word out she's willing to do paid appearances and just seeing what opportunities come to her. Katie never did this before her split with Tom. Brands (want) Katie to wear their clothing for money, and then she'll get photographed in it," a source told The New York Daily News.
Katie will receive $400,000 per year in child support until hers and Tom's six-year-old daughter Suri turns 18 and the actor has also set up a "sizeable trust fund" for the youngster, which Katie won't be able to access. "Katie wanted the trust fund put in place for Suri so that their daughter will be able to tap into after she turns 18 years old. Katie has absolutely no access to the money and didn't want to. She just wanted to ensure that Suri would have financial security as she becomes an adult. It's a sizable trust fund, but Suri won't be able to fully legally claim it until she is in her 30s," a source said.
Katie Holmes tries to keep her life in "perspective."
The former Dawson's Creek actress - whose divorce from ex-husband Tom Cruise was finalized last month - admits being in the public eye can be tough but knows she's a lot better off than some people.
Katie - who was given primary custody of the couple's six-year-old daughter, Suri, while Tom was awarded extensive visitation rights - said, "I have a lot of feelings about the press. But there are a lot of people with much bigger problems and who are less fortunate. I try to keep it all in perspective."
Katie also says she tries her best to keep Suri grounded, despite the youngster being born to incredibly wealthy and successful parents: "I spray-paint shoe racks, because, why not? I think, 'Oh, I'm a great mom' - and then it doesn't really pan out the way I think it's going to. But the intention's there. I've always painted and done crafts at home - I have to stay creative in every aspect [of my life]. My sister teaches art, and she gives me a lot of ideas."
Suri Cruise is "adjusting well" following her parents' split.
The six-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes is now living in New York with her mother following the actress filing for divorce last month, and insiders say the couple are keeping their problems away from the little girl in order to make the separation as easy as possible for her. "Both Katie and Tom have really gone out of their way to make sure the transition between both households is as easy and normal as possible for Suri. Tom and Katie aren't fighting with each other because they haven't seen each other and so Suri has been protected from any uncomfortable situations. And both have agreed to not say anything derogatory about the other," a source said.
Insiders believe that Suri is adjusting so well as she was used to Tom being away for long periods of time with his work before he and Katie split. "Suri is used to her dad being away filming and not spending every single day with him. She loves the daddy/daughter time they get together and loves the trips so this isn't a new thing for her. She always spent time with him either on set or at home and even on vacation so she's really adjusted well," the source added.
Tom Cruise is set to buy a new home in New York City so he can spend more time with daughter Suri.
The Rock of Ages actor is said to be looking into purchasing a new property in the city after estranged wife Katie Holmes relocated to "The Big Apple" following her decision to divorce Tom and was then given primary custody of the six-year-old girl in their divorce settlement.
Katie, 33, intends to live permanently in New York with Suri, so Tom wants a base their so he can see his child whenever he wants. "Tom's looking for a new home here. He wants a fresh start. He doesn't want to go back to the East Village apartment where he was living with Katie. He's looking for something that's very private where he won't have to deal with going through a lobby, and people outside all the time," a source told The New York Post.
