This is so heartwarming. Tom Cruise and his sweet daughter Suri have finally reunited after far too much time apart, according to a new report. He just couldn’t bear staying away any longer!
Tom Cruise, 52, reportedly got a short, but treasured, three hours to spend with 9-year-old Suri Cruise on July 27 — the first time he’s seen her in a very long time! Tom was in New York City for the premiere of Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation, and took the opportunity to reunite with little Suri in what a source is calling an “emotional” moment for the two. We’re so happy that this daddy-daughter pair are together once again!
To rectify their distance, Tom reportedly set up a playdate when he was on his M:I circuit, meeting Suri at an apartment near Central Park that belongs to someone in his management team, according to OK! Magazine; going to ex Katie Holmes‘ apartment in Chelsea would only lead to paparazzi sniffing around!
It’s thought that Tom has stayed away from his youngest because of Katie’s negative views on Scientology; it was enough to keep him away from his daughter for a long, long time. He hadn’t seen Suri in more than three months, with their July meeting only their second playdate in a year, according to OK! That’s at least better than previous reports, which have stated that Tom and Suri have been apart for two years because of his beliefs. It’s a shame that this father and daughter aren’t together, no matter how long!
Their day was apparently lovely, with Tom giving little Suri a huge teddy bear as they played a game of hide-and-seek and read stories. Katie was there too! How sweet! “Suri was so excited,” a source told the mag. “It was emotional for both of them. [Tom] was overcome seeing Suri again. He knows he could miss seeing her grow up if he’s not careful.”
One way he’s not letting that happen? Tom’s reportedly looking into buying an apartment in NYC, with Katie’s support, to make it easier to see Suri whenever he wants. We think that’s a great idea!
Tom May Leave Scientology For Suri
Tom and Suri apparently speak on the phone and video chat all the time, but it’s not enough; he reportedly got choked up when hearing his little girl talk excitedly about her ballet class, and he realized he’d never seen her dance. He wanted to never miss another moment — and this might be the way to do that.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Tom will move to NYC to be closer to Suri?
