All eyes were on the daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, who was escorted by a handsome teen on the night.

Now, the identity of Suri's date has been revealed as budding musician, Toby Cohen. 

The fellow senior at La Guardia High School beamed alongside Suri, and at one point, in photos published on the New York Post, he confidently placed his hands around her waist as he stood behind her.

Suri has kept her personal life out of the spotlight - with the help of Katie - in her years growing up in New York. But now, as an adult, she's forging a future for herself in the arts. 

It was recently revealed via a TikTok video that Suri would be attending Carnegie Mellon University.

Suri has amazing vocals and acting skills too and in addition to headlining several school productions over the years, she sang the opening credits of her mom's movie, Alone Together, in 2022. 

Ironically, the tune was "Moon River", the very same one Toby was heard singing in Eva's Instagram post.

It's hard to believe Suri is ready to leave home

Katie has branded her daughter, "very, very talented," in the past and while it'll be difficult to see her move away from their home in New York, there's no doubt, the Dawson's Creek star is unbelievably proud.
