Katie Holmes has always kept her daughter, Suri Cruise out of the public eye, but she's been surprisingly more open about her of late.
It's definitely a good idea when you consider how many young stars have very public meltdowns in their later years.
Katie took to Instagram on Thursday to show off a picture of her 10-year-old daughter as a toddler with a cute caption.
The cute picture above was accompanied by the following caption: "#tbt my sweet angel."
It sure was a throwback, and a welcome one at that.
With all of the questions about when Tom last saw his daughter, maybe the throwback picture will help him realize how much of her life he has missed.
Katie married Tom in 2006, but their marriage came to a conclusion in 2012, with there being no solid answer given for the parting of ways.
That's not to say there was not a lot of rumors swirling about what happened. When a celebrity couple is dubbed "TomKat" by fans, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a lot of media attention when they break up.
Katie shocked the world when she uploaded a picture of Suri in November because nobody knew what she looked like because of the media blackout that surrounded her.
You can see that picture below.
"Strong little girls that will become strong women. Let's keep fighting to make it a better world for our children," Holmes wrote at the time.
Like we said earlier, it is a wise idea to keep the young ones away from the cameras. Katie is obviously a doting mother who cares very much about her welfare.
Even Katie keeps quiet about her own personal life. Sometimes, it's best to let the world speculate, and that sure seems like what Katie wants to do.
Either that, or she does not want her ex-husband to know what the heck she gets up to.
What do you think about all of this?
