Katie Holmes has said she is “so blessed” to be mother to her daughter Suri as she celebrated the girl’s 14th birthday.

The Dawson’s Creek actress shared a photo on Instagram of a handmade sign for her only child, decorated with roses and other flowers and a doll, reading “Happy Birthday”.

She wrote in the caption: “Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!!!!!  I am so blessed to be your mom. May this year be incredible.”

Holmes rarely posts photos of the daughter she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

However, she did post a photograph of the youngster taken from the back, which shows her wearing a flower crown.

She captioned it: “Birthday vibes.”

She last shared a photo of Suri in February 2019, which was also taken from behind.

Cruise and Holmes were married from November 2006 to 2012, after tying the knot in a Scientologist ceremony at Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy.

Suri, who was born in April 2006, was just a few months old at the ceremony.
