Katie Holmes' daughter Suri Cruise has made a furry new friend! The youngster was seen cuddling up to a baby kangaroo, in a photo posted on Instagram by proud mum Katie. The ten-year-old was the picture of happiness, cradling the joey in her arms and beaming down at the animal while Katie posed behind her daughter, giving her winning smile at the camera.

The Dawson's Creek alum was making an appearance on Good Morning America in New York City. Joining her and Suri backstage was fellow celebrity guest and animal activist Jake Hanna, who brought along the baby kangaroo. For her TV appearance, Katie, 38, looked gorgeous in a white summer dress. She opened up about playing Jackie Kennedy Onassis in The Kennedys: After Camelot.

Katie Holmes shared an adorable photo of her daughter Suri

Discussing the former First Lady's style, Katie said: "Well she had such impeccable taste." The actress added: "She had a beautiful Cartier watch, she had beautiful jewellery and we found an antique Cartier watch just for our wardrobe because I thought that's very important because we're going to see that quite often, so I fought for that. I fought for that Cartier."

Katie is never far from her young daughter, who she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise. The mother-daughter pair are incredibly close, and Katie recently opened up about her decision to move from acting to directing for Suri's sake.

"This business is so unstable, and you never really know where you're going to be," she told Town & Country magazine. "The thing about directing is I can say I have this window and that's when we're getting it done. My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now. 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."
