It’s not uncommon for mothers and daughters to look very similar and have the same traits, but when the two of you practically look like twins, that takes the familial bond to a whole other level.
Katie Holmes’ daughter, Suri Cruise, looks almost exactly like her mom did at this age.
The proof is undeniable, thanks to all of the sweet #TBT pictures Holmes shares on social media. Suri also bears a resemblance to her mom at present (Holmes is 38 and looks fab!), but the similarities between the two at the same age is what’s really uncanny.
Holmes’ Instagram account is full of photos of her and her mini-me, so if you just can’t get enough of this mother-daughter duo, it’s definitely worth following her on social media. Take a look at the snap below that shows Holmes at about the same age that Suri is now.
According to an interview with Town & Country, Suri is one very important little girl, especially to her mom.
“My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now,” Holmes told the magazine. “It’s very important that I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood.”
When your mom is Katie Holmes and your dad is Tom Cruise, it’s somewhat difficult to have a “normal” childhood, but Holmes and Suri really seem to keep a relatively low profile, other than the occasional photo on Instagram.
Suri was born in April 2006, but was not spotted by the paparazzi until September of that year. We can only assume that Holmes kept baby Suri out of the public eye because being followed by cameras doesn’t exactly lead to the “stable and innocent” childhood Holmes had in mind for her little girl.
Holmes talked with People magazine after Suri was born saying, “I think she has Tom’s eyes. I think she looks like Tom.”
But, Suri’s dad had a different impression: “She has Kate’s lips and eyes. I think she looks like Kate,” he said at the time.
And, it turns out, he was right! Like mother, like daughter, indeed.
