Suri Cruise Dreams Of Being Future Gymnast Star
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s six year-old daughter Suri Cruise is said to have become obsessed with gymnastics after watching the London 2012 Olympics, announcing she wants to be a star gymnast when she is older.
Suri, was reportedly glued to the Olympic gymnastics coverage this summer, and is now telling everyone she wants to be an Olympic gymnast.
The American women’s gymnastics team performed amazing in the Olympics, winning both the team all-round event, as well as various individual medals, so it’s no wonder they have become an inspiration to young girl such as Suri.
Suri is said to have been in-particularly a huge fan of individual gold-medalist Gabby Douglas, who has become somewhat of a national hero since returning to the US following her incredible success in London.
A source close to Katie and Suri, spoke to the National Enquirer, about Suri’s new obsession, revealing unlike most young girls, who aspire to be pop stars, Suri wants’ to be a sports star: “Suri is gaga for Gabby and the whole women’s summer Olympic gymnastic team. Forget acting and modeling- Suri says when she grows up she wants to be an Olympian.”
The source added: “She really got caught up in the excitement. She’s been taking lessons at Chelsea piers, near Katie’s bachelorette pad for over a month and her coaches have been telling Katie and Tom their daughter has the right stuff and shows a lot of potential.”
Katie and Tom meanwhile, are said to be pleased that Suri doesn’t want to follow their footsteps in to acting, as the pair are keen their daughter concentrates on her education, unlike a lot of celebrities who expose their children to the world of showbiz at such a young age.
