On Sunday May 9, the actor posted a black-and-white photo of her kissing her daughter's cheek as a baby. In the snap, Cruise can be seen looking directly to camera and covering her mouth with her right hand while her mother gives her a big smooch.
'I am so grateful to be a mum to the sweetest daughter. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mums!!!! [sic]' Holmes captioned the photo.
The actor rarely shares photos of her daughter to Instagram, apart from the occasional snap of her at specific milestone moments in her life, like on her 15th birthday last month.
Cruise lives with her mother in NYC and the pair are regularly spotted out and about together, looking more and more alike with each passing day.
Last September, the teen was seen on an outing in the Big Apple with her famous mother while grabbing some frozen yoghurt.
For the walk in the city, Cruise wore a pair of black flared jeans, white trainers and a white cardigan, while her mum wore a pair of green sliders, light-coloured jeans and a cream knitted jumper.
The pair coordinated their looks in patterned face masks during the Coronavirus pandemic.
In a recent interview, the former ELLE UK cover star opened up about her bond with her teenage daughter.
‘I love her so much,’ Holmes told InStyle.
‘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. She came out very strong — 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.'
Speaking about the press intrusion on their lives, the actress continued, adding: 'I did recently see some fan site [about her] posted when she was a baby.
‘And it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little. I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at six in the morning when nobody would see us. But there's one video where I'm holding her — she was two at the time — and she starts waving at the cameras. She's pretty special.'
In 2019, Holmes told ELLE UK that she and her daughter ‘kind of grew up together’, noting: ‘I was happy to become a mum in my twenties... It’s been nice that our ages fit… how do I put this? Every age that my child has been and my age at that time has been a good match.’
Holmes was married to actor Tom Cruise for six years until 2012. In 2013, it’s believed she began dating Collateral star Jamie Foxx but the pair split in 2019, despite having never gone public with their romance. The star is now in a relationship with restauranteur Emilio Vitolo Jr.
