Suri Cruise is the spitting image of her mom Katie Holmes in new family photo

By Gemma Strong

Double take! Katie Holmes shared a sweet new snapshot of her daughter Suri Cruise on Instagram on Sunday (Mar. 19), and there's no denying the strong resemblance between mother and daughter. The actress, 38, posted a picture of her ten-year-old hanging out in LA with two of her older cousins, showing Suri looking very grown up as she sits on the shoulders of one family member. "Love those sweethearts who inspire me with all of their accomplishments and beautiful hearts and for bringing so much light to all our lives! #lalaland #losangeles #family #love #ontopoftheworld," Katie captioned the photo.

Katie, who shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, recently opened up about her decision to move from acting to directing for the sake of her daughter. "This business is so unstable, and you never really know where you're going to be," she told Town & Country magazine. "The thing about directing is I can say I have this window and that's when we're getting it done. My child is the most important person to me, and her upbringing is paramount to my work right now. It's very important that I'm present and she has a stable, innocent childhood. I feel so blessed to do what I do, but there's nothing in the world better than watching your child succeed."

Katie was married to Tom Cruise from 2006 until 2012

She also spoke about Suri growing up. "Every day, kids get a little further away from you," she said. "That's a positive thing. They should be becoming more independent, but it's heartbreaking. You want them to stay with you forever, but they're these amazing beings, and you have to do everything you can to give them what they need – and then they're going to go. And that’s going to be very, very sad for me."
