Raising Suri Alone Wasn't Easy For Katie Holmes After Leaving Tom Cruise

Single parenthood is tough for anyone, but it’s especially challenging if you do it after such a highly controversial divorce. Speaking with InStyle, Katie Holmes described her experience raising Suri as “intense” when she parted ways with Tom Cruise since everyone’s eyes were on them. “It was a lot of attention, and I had a little child on top of it. We had some funny moments out and about in public,” Holmes recalled. Luckily, the mother-daughter duo received lots of love from the people around them, allowing them to pull through.

While Holmes had plenty of help, including her own mother, she couldn’t help but feel traces of self-doubt while raising Suri. “Am I enough? Am I doing enough? Have I seen her enough?” she told People in 2014, two years after her divorce from Cruise. “Guess what? You’re not enough, she hasn’t seen you enough, you’re horrible: That’s how it can feel sometimes.” But she hasn’t let that interfere with her desire to become the best mom she can be. “You do the best you can. Some days you feel really good about yourself and some days you don’t.”

But now the two have reached a point where they’re each other’s best friend. “You’d struggle to find a mom-daughter duo who are more in sync with each other,” an insider close to Holmes and Suri shared with Us Weekly. “They’re a real team — their connection is a beautiful thing to witness.”
