Suri Cruise’s Birthday Bash

Friday, April 17, 2009

She doesn’t officially turn three-years-old until tomorrow (April 18) but Suri Cruise got an early jump on her birthday festivities yesterday (April 16) in Los Angeles.

According to a People magazine report, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise went all out for their little girl, planning a princess-themed party including a “Beauty and the Beast” cake and a treasure hunt.

And unlike past parties, this time TomKat kept the guest list to just close family and friends. A source told press, "They just wanted to keep it small and make it fun for Suri and her friends."

As for her education, Suri is said to be under the instruction of top teachers already. An insider revealed, "It doesn't matter what Suri is doing, Tom wants her to be able to do it better than any other child. All parents think that their kids are special, but Tom and Katie firmly believe Suri is gifted. She is learning French and Spanish and has a tutor she sees once a week. Suri has shown a real love of dancing, so Tom and Katie are encouraging her as much as possible. She practices ballet, tap and modern dance.”
