She’s growing up fast! Katie Holmes’ daughter Suri Cruise, 13, checks her new cellphone on stroll in New York
Suri Cruise looked like a quintessential teenager while out with her mom in New York on Monday.
The daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise was spotted checking her new cellphone while strolling around Manhattan.
The smart phone may have been a gift for her 13th birthday, which she celebrated with a trip to France in April.
Meanwhile, Katie, 40, sipped on coffee and looked chic in a purple and white floral dress and trench coat.

While it is not unusual for young teens to have a cellphone – it is a matter that does polarize parents. (In a recent British Vogue interview, Madonna said giving her older children smart phones at 13 was a ‘mistake’, adding it effectively ‘ended’ her relationship with them.)
Katie has worked hard as a single parent to raise a well-adjusted ‘good human.’
When discussing her approach to parenting last year, she told Today: ‘I do a lot to put perspective on life.
‘We help out the homeless. We do small acts of kindness. Again, it’s a daily thing. I don’t over-gift. I don’t inundate my child with a lot of things. We’re trying to raise good humans and some days we’re better at it than others. You don’t always get treats.’
‘We just focus on what she’s passionate about and how you feel when you achieve your goals. Be true to your sense of opinions. I listen to her. It’s a daily thing. I try to reward her for her hard work, and not necessarily the results of the hard work,’ she added.
And she’s strict when it comes to education, noting: ‘I also demand a 100 on a spelling test!’
Suri the teenager: The 13-year-old kept a close eye on her new smart phone during the outing
Batman Begins actress Katie initially began dating Tom Cruise in 2005, and seven weeks into the relationship, they were engaged.
Their Scientologist wedding was held at the Castello Orsini-Odescalchi in Bracciano in November 2006, seven months after their daughter Suri was born.
Katie filed in 2012 for a divorce that was finalized only 10 days later, with Suri’s mother retaining primary custody, though Tom could visit, according to People.
(He hasn’t been pictured with his daughter in many years.)

Ron Miscavige, father of Scientology leader David Miscavige, told the MailOnline in 2016 that Katie’s misgivings about Scientology – including the effect it could have on Suri – contributed to her decision to leave Tom.
Katie and her current beau Jamie Foxx went public as a couple in late 2017, though there had been speculation they were an item since 2013.
Katie has only been married the once, but Tom had previously tried matrimony with Mimi Rogers – who quipped in Playboy after the divorce that ‘he thought he had to be celibate to maintain the purity of his instrument’ – and Nicole Kidman.
