When it comes to raising daughter Suri, Katie Holmes looks to her own mum, Kathleen, for parenting cues.
"She's just so kind and has such a pure heart; she really leads with those two qualities, so I try to do the same," Holmes, 37, told WHO at the Sept. 8 opening of the restaurant Avra Madison in New York City.
"She's just so kind and very generous, so I try my best to embody that and pass that on to my own daughter," Holmes says.
The night before the restaurant launch – which the actress-director hosted – Holmes took her mother as her date to the re-opening of the Cartier Mansion in New York, an outing that doubled as a birthday celebration for Kathleen.
"It's always a blessing to be able to have time with my mum – especially time in the city with her," Holmes says. "We always have a good time."
The mother-daughter duo always have a good time with Suri, now 10, too.
More recently, over the weekend, Holmes posted some sweet shots on Instagram of her family at a more intimate surprise birthday party thrown for her mother, captioning the family photos with gratitude-filled hashtags, from "#blessed" to "#love."
As for how Holmes and Suri enjoy their time at home? The Kennedys After Camelot star says they spend time in the kitchen making her go-to: "Chocolate chip cookies!"
