  • Holmes' followers flooded the comments with birthday greetings for Suri

Katie Holmes celebrated her daughter Suri's 15th birthday on Sunday with a series of never-before-seen photos.

Holmes took to Instagram to wish her daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise a happy birthday. She also shared three black-and-white pictures of her and Suri together.

One photo showed Holmes holding Suri close. Another snap features the mother and daughter wearing matching plaid as a smiling Suri gives the actress a hug.

"Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you!!!!!!!! I can’t believe you are already 15!" she wrote in the caption.

Her post was flooded with sweet messages for Suri wishing the teen a happy birthday.

"Happy birthday," Malcolm Carfrae wrote.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUR!!" DJ Quintero added.


"Happy happy 15th!! Can’t believe she is 15 now. All my love to you both," Bailee Madison wrote.

Holmes has raised Suri as a single parent since 2012 after she divorced Cruise. In a previous interview, she said that her daughter is the most important person in her life.

"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. I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there's nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed," the actress continued.

At the time, Suri was only 10 years old. The "Batman Begins" star said she realized that "kids get a little further away from you." While she finds her daughter becoming more independent a positive thing, Holmes said she thinks it's heartbreaking at the same time.

"You want them to stay with you forever, but they're these amazing beings, and you have to do everything you can to give them what they need—and then they're going to go. And that's going to be very, very sad for me," she added.

Meanwhile, Holmes found new love in NYC chef Emilio Vitolo Jr. following her split from Jamie Foxx in 2019. In November 2020, an unnamed insider told Us Weekly the actress "feels so blessed to be with a centered, down-to-earth, kindhearted companion," adding that the 33-year-old chef "treats her like a total princess."
