Katie Holmes Took Suri Cruise To Meet All Her Cousins For The First Time
By Jon Boon
Suri Cruise is finally finding out what it’s like to be part of a big family, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The 6-year-old spent last weekend with mom Katie Holmes, 33, in Toledo, Ohio and got to meet all of her cousins for the first time!
It’s Katie’s latest attempt to normalize her spoiled daughter’s life and young Suri took to meeting her extended family like a duck to water.
“The purpose of Katie’s trip with Suri to Ohio was to introduce Suri to all her cousins,” a family insider revealed.
“As the youngest of five, Katie loved growing up in a big family, so she wants exactly the same experience for Suri.
“She worries that Suri doesn’t get enough exposure to kids her own age and Katie wants her to be brought up in a similar environment to which she was raised in.
“Tom was very protective over Suri, and liked to keep her close to him, the Church and his family all the time.
“Now he is out of the picture, Katie decided Suri should meet her eight cousins for the first time in an attempt to give her a normal childhood, away from the glitz and glamor she had become accustomed to.
“It’ll take some getting used to for Suri, because she always gets things her own way. At first, she wasn’t thrilled with the idea of sharing some of her toys with her cousins when they all played together.
“But, soon enough, Suri won them all over with her bubbly personality and they can’t wait to have her visit again.
“They’d only ever seen Suri in magazines and in family photos, so they felt extra special to meet a celebrity their own age,” the insider revealed.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Katie has finally moved her belongings out of the $30 million Beverly Hills home she once shared with Tom.
Her possessions were picked up by a moving and storage truck on Wednesday afternoon, and X-17online managed to get the pictures.
The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion, which also features a movie theater, tennis court and swimming pool is Tom’s to keep after the pair reached a divorce settlement out of court.
And as RadarOnline.com first reported, Suri will start her first day at school in New York with both her famous parents there in tow to give her a big send off to calm her nerves.
“Tom has been filming his latest movie in London but has made plans to be in New York for Suri's first day of school, which will be after Labor Day," a source close to the former couple revealed.
“Tom and Katie have been speaking on the telephone regarding Suri and Katie has been very supportive of Tom wanting to be there when Suri goes to her new school for the first time.”
