Katie Holmes' Lookalike Daughter Suri Cruise Spotted Just Days Before 18th Birthday

Katie Holmes

Suri Cruise, the daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, is turning 18 years old on April 18. But ahead of her big day, the teenager was spotted in New York City in a rare appearance while hanging out with friends.

Looking like her mother's twin, Suri had a bright smile on her face as she talked with a friend in new photos shared by Page Six. She emulated Holmes' relaxed fashion style as well, wearing a white maxi skirt, a red striped button-up sweater and slip-on shoes, while her long brown hair was parted in the middle with two clips pinning it away from her face.

The young woman will celebrate a milestone birthday in a few days, although it's unclear how she plans to spend the day. Suri lives quite a private life, shielded from the media by her mother, but she is occasionally seen exploring NYC either alone, with friends or with Holmes.

The mother-daughter duo has lived in the city together for years, ever since Holmes divorced Cruise in 2012, with the settlement giving her full custody of Suri. Cruise and Holmes got married in 2006 after a high-profile, public romance, welcoming their daughter a few months earlier.

While Holmes doesn't often talk about her private life while working, she shared a little insight into Suri during an interview last year, telling Glamour, "I’m very grateful to be a parent, to be her parent. She’s an incredible person."

She also touched on her decision to keep Suri out of the public eye, adding, "What has been really important for me with my daughter, because she was so visible at a young age, is I really like to protect her."

Since her divorce from Cruise, Holmes has not gotten married again, although she has had a few serious relationships since, including a years-long romance with Jamie Foxx.
