3. They leaned on each other after Katie's divorce from Tom:

Following the split, Suri and Katie moved to New York in 2012.

"That time was intense. It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. We had some funny moments out and about in public."

While the paparazzi were relentless, Katie was determined to give her daughter a normal life.

"We were followed a lot when she was little. I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, 6 in the morning when nobody would see us," she said to InStyle.

4. Katie cares more about raising Suri than her career:

Suri always comes first. “My child is the most important person to me and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now," she told Town & Country in 2017.

"It’s very important that I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood.”

5. They have been learning a lot about each other during quarantine:

It has been a trying time for many celeb parents, that is for sure.

Katie opened up in a recent interview with Australia's The Daily Telegraph.

"Just really looking at everything you have and celebrating the simplicity of making dinner and [spending] that time together."

Like mother, like daughter. It took a lot of bravery for Katie to leave Tom Cruise back in the day.

She continued by saying:

"Then she's like, 'OK, I'm going to try the next thing.' She's very focused and a hard worker."

7. Katie can relate to Suri being an only child:

While the actress has siblings, she always felt like an only child since they are older than she is. So she had to learn to be on her own.

She continued by saying, "I like to stay busy."

This is something that Katie's been trying to instill in Suri since she was little. "I've always wanted Suri to feel empowered [in that way] too."

To make this happen, they went to a fabric store to get everything they needed for fairies.

"I wanted her to create things instead of having stuff done for her. That way she was always in charge," she told InStyle.

Katie attributed this to having Suri in her 20s.

10. Katie is worried about “bad influences” on Suri:

Now that Suri is 14, Katie has a lot more to worry about.

12. Katie has raised Suri as a single mother since her split from Tom Cruise:

There were even reports that Cruise hadn't seen his daughter in at least six years.

While his rep denied these claims, Katie does go through the struggles of being a single mother.

“Am I enough? Am I doing enough? Have I seen her enough?” she pondered to People in 2014.

"Guess what? You’re not enough, she hasn’t seen you enough, you’re horrible: That’s how it can feel sometimes.”
