Quotes

"Having a little girl is incredible." - Michael on his only daughter

"When my daughter Carys wants to get married I'll be as rough with the guy as Catherine's dad was when he checked me out. He gave me the once over and then some." - protective papa Michael on his daughter's future boyfriend.

"The kids recently started new schools, which means having to make new friends. I like to get them up in the morning and get them ready for school. I make them breakfast, and we talk about their day. I like to know who their friends are. I can see the tightness of the bond we feel and the security they have. It is tremendous, unequivocal love with no judgment, and that is the best feeling in the world." - Michael on his two youngest children.

"My career was the most important thing in my life, followed by marriage and children. And it's completely reversed now. I never anticipated starting a family and the joy of raising kids at my age. I think it's easier for me to be a good father. I'm not so concerned about my career. I like to be home a lot more now. I see the confidence my kids have got versus the struggle for confidence that I had or that Cameron might have dealt with." - Michael on admitting his faults during his younger years, making reference to his eldest son's federal prison sentencing due to drug charges.

Quotes

"I said to Rowan, 'The baby is going to live in our house.' There was a long pause, then she looked at me and said, 'She is going to live in my house?' But she's been helping me decorate the room. It's been sweet. I'm glad she'll have a sibling." - Brooke on her second daughter.

"There are so few children I like. If you’re not polite, you can’t come to my house. Manners [represent] respect and kindness. I want people to like my kids, and if they’re bratty, they’ll have a harder time in life.” - Brooke on teaching her girls important life skills.

"My version of being selfish has shifted. My old version was to be comfortable, to get sleep and exercise. Now it’s my children’s worlds. They’re not going to remember Mom was tired. They’re going to remember I did the weather chart or story time at school. So you just do it. And you’re tired. I sit there and think, My brain’s turning to mush! It’s the mundane stuff that’s important.” - Brooke on how motherhood has changed her.

"I feel like they need me, but I feel like they're able to be more self-sufficient and their real personalities come out with their father. For my girls, mom is sort of laden with emotions. When they're sad, they want Mom. When they're hurt, they want Mom. So much of it is based on them needing me. And also, because I'm mom, I'm more of the disciplinarian. It feels like they need their dad in a sort of more independent level. My older daughter Rowan really loves watching any type of sports with her dad. She's not really interested in the sport, per se, but she has this unique bond with him about it. It's almost like she has this inside joke with her dad. They're friends; they act like buddies." - Brooke on her daughter's relationships with their father.

Name: Suri Cruise

Date of Birth: April 18, 2006

Parents: Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise

Siblings: Isabella, 19, & Connor, 17

Facts:


 Suri was born at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif.
 
 Suri wasn't seen in public until September 2006 and was first photographed for the October 2006 cover of Vanity Fair, which was incidentally the magazine's best selling issue of all time
 
 Some say her first name means either "princess" in Hebrew, or "red rose" in Persian, while others have said that Suri is a Yiddish form of Sarah.  Suri can also be translated into a Hindi boy's name and it means "pointy nose" in some Indian dialects and "pickpocket" in Japanese.
 
 Her second birthday party made headlines when Tom and Katie spent a reported $100,000 on the event. The theme was butterflies, and the lavish cake had an excessive $5,000 price tag alone. Catering cost the couple $45,000 and the sweets didn't end with the cake. Reportedly, $230 was doled out for cupcakes from LA's Sprinkles bakery as well.
 
 Last year, Suri celebrated her 5th birthday with a lavish tea party alongside mom and dad at their Beverly Hills mansion.
 

Quotes:

"Becoming a mother has been the most amazing experience--in an instant you become strong. You have to be a little bit wiser; it's the most important job you have in the world." - mama Katie on motherhood.

"We like to be together, so we use the house for our [business] meetings. [We] play Yahtzee, board games, Scrabble. We grill; have pool parties. We play 'The Three Little Pigs' and Suri is the Big Bad Wolf. [Tom] reads story books to Suri and we all laugh. When a good song comes on, he'll break into dance. We'll watch movies in bed--recently Madagascar and Cinderella, for Suri. We have a really good time." - Katie on her family.

"She's really such a special girl -- strong and funny. She's her own person. She has a great sense of humor." - Katie on her first born daughter.

"Some of the stuff [people said about Suri] was such absolutely horrible things to say about a child... It was so uncalled for and so disgusting. Enough is enough." - Katie on the rumors that followed Suri's birth.

"My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day. I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do.'" - Katie on what it takes to be a mom.

"It comes down to the same thing as when I was a kid. Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make [Suri] laugh? And you know what? She makes me get better and better, because she's always asking me to do it again." - papa Tom on his youngest daughter's ability to make him a better person.

"I'll never forget the moment I became a dad. But it's hard to describe -- that level of responsibility, the desire to give such joy. The clarity: Nothing is more important than this." - Tom on fatherhood.
