"I painted, we had a sewing machine, so we were making quilts, we were cooking; we were on a perpetual vacation," Katie told the sophomore issue of Amazing magazine.

"We were also on a lake and there was a hammock, so I would wake up, sew, have coffee, take a nap on the hammock [laughs]… Oh and, by the way, I have to throw this in; we were staying by a lake, so we probably watched Dirty Dancing ten times. Let me tell you, I danced to it in the living room, and it still holds up. It was fun."

Last year, Katie gave another rare snippet into her relationship with Suri, telling InStyle: "I love her so much. My biggest goal has always been to nurture her into her individuality. To make sure she is 100 per cent herself and strong, confident, and able. And to know it.

Katie and Suri have a very close relationship

"She came out very strong – she's always been a strong personality. She'll pick an activity and work her butt off until she's really good at it. Then she's like, 'Ok, I'm going to try the next thing.' She's very focused and a hard worker."

Katie welcomed Suri on 6 April 2006. Shortly after, Tom described the birth as "everything that we wanted it to be. ... It was spiritual. It was powerful. It was indescribable".
