Actor Tom Cruise reunited with his daughter Suri in New York yesterday for the first time since his split from wife Katie Holmes.
Shooting on his latest movie Oblivion wrapped in California, Tom Cruise flew to New York overnight to see his youngest child.
Suri Cruise, 6, cuddled her father with one arm and clutched a soft toy in the other as he carried her into the Greenwich Hotel.
They later emerged, seemingly having changed outfits, with Suri switching from casual red flip-flops into a pair of burnt red patent flats – although her orange dress remained the same.
Tom Cruise, 50, also seemed to have freshened up, wearing a navy T-shirt instead of a light blue shirt.
His sister Cass Mapother was also seen arriving at the establishment with toys in tow.
Tom Cruise had no contact with Katie Holmes when he made a five minute visit to her apartment to collect their child earlier this morning, according to TMZ.
The actor and his daughter were last spotted in public together on June 16, when they dined at Sushi Samba in Reykjavik, Iceland, along with Katie Holmes.
It was no doubt an emotional reunion for father and daughter, who have been keeping in touch via phone and video chat in recent weeks.
Last week Tom Cruise’s lawyer, Bert Fields said the actor was eager to be with his daughter again, adding: “Tom loves Suri very, very much, as he does his other two children. Tom is a family man, and dedicated to his children. They are the centre of his world.”
Tom Cruise’s older children Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Connor from his marriage to Nicole Kidman have both been spending time with him in recent weeks, including sombre birthday celebration on July 3.
Following her split from Tom Cruise on June 29, Katie Holmes has secured primary custody of their little girl in an undisclosed divorce agreement.
It was recently revealed Katie Holmes has enrolled Suri into New York’s Convent of the Sacred Heart School.
The conservative school – where former pupils include Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton – was chosen because the actress wants her daughter to have a Catholic education, rather than being taught at a Scientology school as Tom Cruise desired.
