Countdown to Mother's Day 2008: Top 10 Celebrity Moms: #6

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

In honor of Mother’s Day, join us as we continue our countdown of the Top 10 celebrity moms. We’ll be highlighting 1 mom daily leading up to the big day, and to our #1 Celebrity Mom herself!

A Top Celebrity Mom

Katie Holmes Cruise
Katie – or Kate, as husband Tom Cruise has redubbed her – is mom to one of the most famous celebrity babes of all times: Suri (princess) Cruise. After Katie’s whirlwind romance with Tom – and her super quick pregnancy – rumors began swirling about the authenticity of their claims of love… and even whether Tom was the baby’s real father.

Hysteria intensified after Suri’s birth on April 18, 2006 (the one-year anniversary of the couple’s first date), since Tom and Katie kept their little princess shielded from the paparazzi for weeks. When Hollywood’s most talked-about couple finally introduced Suri to the world, pictures of the gorgeous, blue-eyed baby girl squelched the gossip. Suri is the perfect genetic combination of both mom and dad.

Once the naíve girl next door on the WB series Dawson’s Creek, Katie Holmes Cruise is now one of Hollywood’s hottest fashion plates. From running the New York City marathon to walking the red carpet, Katie does it all with sophisticated style. Of course, her favorite person to accessorize is little Suri, whose shoe collection probably rivals that of the wife of a former South American dictator.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the crunch is on to find the perfect gift. Of course, mom says that all she wants is a homemade card and maybe some breakfast in bed. But we know that even the most selfless mother (and aren’t they all?!) wants and deserves a little pampering.

So whether you’re the husband, parent, child or best friend of a new, veteran or expecting mommy, you’ll find the perfect gift (in a variety of price ranges) in our Guide to Mother’s Day Gifts.
