Katie Holmes’s precious little cupcake got a sweet treat on her birthday.
Twelve sweet treats, to be exact.
Suri Cruise celebrated her 8th birthday Friday, and proud mama Katie took to Twitter to share her excitement about the festive occasion.
The actress, 35, posted a black-and-white snapshot showing a dozen cupcakes with the message “Happy Birthday Suri,” the goodies tantalizingly laid out on a checkered platter atop polka-dot ribbons.
“Best day ever!!!!!!” Holmes captioned the pic, which she shared with her 88,000 followers.
Holmes, who is gearing up to return to TV to play a Manhattan socialite in an upcoming ABC drama, has made it clear that her daughter will always remain her top priority.
“The No. 1 thing is making sure my child feels loved. And good about herself,” she recently told Elle U.K.. “And that what she does and who she is is special and should be celebrated.”
