Posted by Adam
TOM Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ adorable daughter Suri has been idolizing Olympic gymnastics star Gabby Douglas.
According to a new report from American tabloid the National Enquirer, Suri, 6, has told her parents she wants to win a gold medal “just like Gabby!”
“Suri is gaga for Gabby and the whole women’s summer Olympic gymnastics team,” a source said.
“Forget acting and modeling – Suri says when she grows up she wants to be an Olympian!”
Suri caught the tumbling bug after watching the 2012 Summer Games with her mom.
“She really got caught up in the excitement,” the source explained. “She’s been taking gymnastics lessons at Chelsea Piers, near Katie’s bachelorette pad, for over a month. And Suri’s coaches have been telling Katie and Tom that their daughter has the right stuff and that she shows a lot of potential.”
Katie has been pulling strings to arrange a meet-and-greet between Suri and the 16-year-old gymnastics champ.
“Katie already promised Suri it’s going to happen soon,” said the insider.
“Despite their bitter divorce, they’ve found common ground in regard to Suri. They love that she wants to pursue something other than acting and are encouraging her to go for the gold.”
