And Holmes ended the series of adorable family photos with a particularly sweet moment between the mother-daughter duo.

“#blessed #goodnight #gratitude #happybirthdaymom #family #love,” she captioned the photo of Suri nuzzling up against her mom.

Holmes shares her daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise. The couple were married in 2006 and Holmes filed for divorce in June 2012.

In a 2014 interview with PEOPLE, Holmes said Suri “means everything to me … I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom.”

Tom Cruise Completely Cuts Ties With Daughter Suri: Report

Back in April, we reported that Tom Cruise had not seen his daughter Suri in 1,000 days.

Now, he's reportedly inching close to the three-year mark with no apparent plans to break his shameful streak of negligent parenting.

Sources say Cruise justifies his abandonment of Suri through Scientologist directives that require Church members to cut ties with those who have abandoned the faith (known in CoS jargon as "suppressive persons").

Cruise refused all contact with ex-wife Katie Holmes immediately after she left the Church, and sources say he gradually distanced himself from Suri until he reached the point of having zero contact with his with his youngest daughter.

“They used to Skype and text, but that trailed off drastically,” one insider tells In Touch.

“He uses his film commitments as an excuse, but the truth is that doesn’t hold much weight with Suri anymore.”

Many who were formerly close to Cruise speculate that he was eager to remove Holmes from his life, and his relationship with Suri was simply collateral damage.

It seems there was a time when Cruise wanted 10-year-old Suri to be "reformed" by attending a school for Scientologist children.

Not surprisingly, Katie doesn't want her daughter to have anything to do with the Church.

As a result, Scientologist leader David Miscavige reportedly gave Cruise all of the justification that he needed to cut off contact with his daughter.

“Tom eats, breathes and sleeps Scientology,” one insider states.

“He’s disconnected from Katie, and then de facto from Suri, because of her connection to Katie. He hasn’t seen her since she was 7.”

"Miscavige would have hammered home to Tom that Suri has been infiltrated by a bad Thetan,” says former Scientologist and Cruise associate Gary Morehead.

Cruise has yet to respond to claims that he's abandoned he's not longer a part of his daughter's life.

Luck of the Irish or luck of the Katie Holmes?

The actress and her daughter Suri Cruise were spotted taking in the Notre Dame vs. Stephen F. Austin collegiate basketball game in Brooklyn on Sunday. The mother-daughter pair were front-and-center at the nail-biting game as Notre Dame’s Rex Pflueger tipped-in the ball with 1.5 seconds left, sending the Fighting Irish to the Sweet 16.

Holmes, 37, dressed in a casual attire sporting a white sweater and pair of jeans while Suri, 9, bundled up in a pink jacket and matching sweater.

Noticeably missing from the mother of one’s left hand was the diamond ring that recently fueled a slew of engagement rumors. (Which Jamie Foxx‘s rep said were untrue.)

Also trending online was Holmes’ fierce game face during the Notre Dame-SFA match.  CBS Sports cameras caught the A-lister scowling as she watched the 6-seed and 14-seed team duke it out.

The Ohio-native has been spending quality family time with Suri in their homebase in New York. Holmes shared a photo on Instagram Sunday writing, “#sundaymorning #familytime #blessed.”
