Katie Holmes lands the April cover of Elle UK, and inside the magazine she opens up about her six-year-old daughter, Suri, living in New York and much more.
She admits that Suri’s upbringing is much different than her own, which was spent on the western end of Lake Erie in her native Toledo. “Children are exposed to so much more than we were, I suppose every generation goes through that feeling, “Oh my God, it’s so different from how I grew up,’” she said. “I think the basics are very important: the number one thing is making sure my child feels loved. And good about herself. And that what she does and who she is, is special and important, and should be celebrated. And my mum always said, ‘No one loves you like your mother.’”
Katie, who gave birth to Suri in 2006 when she was married to Tom Cruise, admits that motherhood has changed how she views women. “I think all of our experiences bring us to a greater understanding of ourselves and help us realise what is most important. That being said, I have three older sisters and one older brother and I went to an all-girls school, and have always been a fan of women. I support women and all experiences give you more insight into others, as well as yourself.”
