May 25, 2020 ByAndrew Parker

Celebrity kids are immediately put into the public eye from the moment of their birth. While some celebrity parents try their hardest to keep their child out of the spotlight, there are some who have been followed from a very young age. It can be absolutely incredible to watch over time how our favorite stars’ children grow up before our very eyes. Because we’re all so closely connected via social media to celebrities, it can feel like we have a personal connection to their lives and family. That is why it is so incredible to watch their kids grow up to become their very own person. Here are some of the most recognizable celebrity and their kids, and how they have changed over the years.

The two biggest names in Hollywood were together for almost a decade. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise stepped out as a couple for the first rime in April 2005. During his appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Cruise jumped on the set’s couch to profess his love for Holmes. Cruise said, “I’m in love. I’m in love and it’s one of those things where you want to be cool, like, ‘Yeah I like her’…that’s not how I feel.” He added,  “I wanted to meet this person and I met her and she’s extraordinary.”

On June 29, 2012, Holmes announced she was filing for divorce from Cruise. A representative for Cruise said, “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.” According to People magazine, lawyers decided very quickly that Holmes would receive primary custody of 6-year-old Suri. According to Extra, Holmes revealed, “I have to say, I did recently see some fansite [about Suri] posted when she was a baby, and it was very intense. We were followed a lot when she was little…I just wanted her outside, so I would walk her around to find parks at, like, six in the morning when nobody would see us.” Right now Suri is 14 years old!
