It looks like Tom Cruise is about to make his daughter, Suri, a very happy girl. The famous Scientologist will also make Katie Holmes smile while at it.
Both OK! magazine and Radar Online are reporting that in the past few weeks, the action star has taken several steps to make ensure that he sees Suri sooner than later.
A source told the publication that Katie’s ex-husband has reached out to the preteen to let her know the following: “He’s contacted Suri through a third party, who he trusts implicitly, to check in and make sure she’s OK. He wants her to know that he’s thought of her all this time and he got all of her messages. In fact, he read and listened to each and every word. Tom’s paving the way to come back in Suri’s life permanently, and many expect it to happen soon.”
The person went on to say that they might meet in Florida while Tom is there on official business for the Church of Scientology.
The person stated: “Tom’s paving the way to come back into Suri’s life permanently—and many expect it to happen soon.”
A second source, who is close to Tom, went on to say that the rules in the controversial church made it hard for him to have any contact with his child.
The insider claimed: “He was absent for one milestone after another in Suri’s life. Tom feels like he’s missed out so much. He wants her to be a part of his life.”
The source added: “Tom couldn’t reach out [to Suri] before because Katie fled the religion, But Tom believes he can bypass the rigid rule.”
The movie star will be in Florida to promote the Church of Scientology, “but what he’s really doing is setting the stage for a reunion with Suri.”
Suri has “made a plea to Katie to let her see her dad,” and Katie is eager for him to spend time with their little girl.
The family friend shared: “Katie would never stand in the way of Suri having a relationship with her father. If that’s what Tom wants, the better.”
Fans are hoping the reports about the reunion are accurate.
