Katie Holmes Gives Us a Rare Peek Inside Her Home (and a Rare Pic of Suri)

Katie Holmes is known for keeping her private life on the down-low, but that didn’t stop the 42-year-old actress from sharing a rare glimpse of her home—and Suri herself—in honor of her daughter’s birthday.

Over the weekend, Holmes celebrated her daughter’s 14th year by posting a series of photos on her personal Instagram account. The Dawson’s Creek alum kicked things off with a snapshot of the birthday girl, who is sporting a Coachella-approved flower crown.

She captioned the post, “birthday vibes,” along with heart emojis. We can clearly see by the pic that Suri is sitting at the kitchen table, which overlooks the backyard. If we’re not mistaken, the birthday girl is eyeing a pink box of doughnuts (as she should).

Holmes followed up with another photo—but this time, it featured the crafty “Happy Birthday” sign she made for Suri.

She wrote, “Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!!!!! I am so blessed to be your mom. May this year be incredible!”

Holmes and her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, welcomed Suri back in 2006. Although she’s their only child, Holmes admitted that she’s ready to take on the prime teenage years.

“I love her so much,” she 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.”

Shout-out to Holmes for making Suri’s quarantine birthday one to remember.
