Katie has enjoyed a busy few days, celebrating her beloved daughter Suri Cruise’s 11th birthday earlier in the week. A keen cook, the devoted mum regularly posts photos of herself baking in the kitchen, and made sure that when it came to celebrating Suri’s big day, that they were treated to not one, but three tasty looking cakes. Sharing a photo of the creations on Instagram, the Dawson’s Creek actress lovingly captioned the snap: “A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweetie."

Katie, who shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, recently opened up about her decision to move from acting to directing for the sake of her daughter. "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."

She also spoke about Suri growing up. "Every day, kids get a little further away from you," she said. "That's a positive thing. They should be becoming more independent, but it's heartbreaking. You want them to stay with you forever, but they're these amazing beings, and you have to do everything you can to give them what they need – and then they're going to go. And that’s going to be very, very sad for me."
