You are a warrior."
Katie, who shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, recently opened up about raising Suri in the spotlight. Chatting on The View, she said: "I raise my child like [how] my family, sisters raise their children and how I was raised. I love being a parent and I feel really blessed to have such a sweet little girl. I am the baby of five. I have a lot of cousins. I'm the youngest grandchild on the Holmes side. So I have an amazing family and we're always in Ohio. I'm really proud of my nieces and nephews."

Earlier this year, the actress confessed that her most significant role is being a mother. "My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now," she told Town & Country magazine. "It’s very important that I’m present and she has a stable, innocent childhood." Katie added: "I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there’s nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed."
