The holidays are fast approaching, and families are already making reunion plans. For divorced couples, now is the perfect time to get together (at least for a night) and spend time with the kids. Adding to the list of Hollywood ex-couples who will be spending Christmas Day together are Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.
For the sake of their 8-year-old daughter Suri, Holmes has decided to reunite with ex-husband for the holidays. According to a source, the 36-year-old actress wants to make her daughter happy during this time of the year. Although she wants to spend the holidays with her own family, the actress has prioritized her daughter’s happiness, even though that means reuniting with her ex-husband, 52-year-old Cruise.
After five years of marriage, the much-loved Hollywood couple divorced in 2012. With Holmes having custody of her daughter, she gets to decide how she wants Suri to grow up. Despite wanting a good relationship with Cruise, Holmes is careful to shield her daughter from her father’s interest in Scientology.
When asked where the family will be spending the holidays, the source revealed that Holmes has invited her ex to visit their new home. This way, the former couple could throw a fitting Christmas party for their child and set aside their differences.
"There’s no way Katie will set foot in Tom’s home or be in the same room as the rest of his family, because they are all so involved with the Scientology movement," the source explained.
With Holmes’ invitation, Cruise will be fitting his schedule to accommodate the event. Even as he is busy filming the upcoming “Mission Impossible 5” movie, Cruise will be taking time out to spend the holidays with his daughter.
Last year, Suri spent Christmas Day with her dad. Being able to spend Christmas Day with her daughter will be a great experience for Holmes. And for Suri, having both parents around during this memorable time surely means a lot. Even if they won’t get back together as a family, it still is a good experience for all of them to be together over the holidays.
