As Katie Holmes celebrated her 30th birthday in NYC yesterday, her hubby Tom Cruise was across the country at the LA premiere of his new flick Valkyrie. But did you think that would stop him from sending her a big b-day surprise?
As Kate finished up her nightly performance of All My Sons, the cast and crew brought out a specially-made birthday cake courtesy of Tom.
"Tom Cruise, our good friend, devoted fan to the show, doting husband of Katie, could not be here tonight," Katie's costar John Lithgow told the audience. "He's heartsick that he couldn't be here ... but he wanted to make his presence felt. So, he's joining us, inviting all of you, to celebrate Katie's birthday."
Katie brought Suri out on stage, where everyone joined in for a resounding rendition of "Happy Birthday," then she and her little girl blew out the candles.
"Thank you for coming out to the show tonight," a truly surprised Katie said. "It was a real pleasure."
While the theater emptied, the cast and crew continued to party, eating cake and sipping champagne, all provided by Mr. Cruise himself.
Cute and sweet or over-the-top and barf-worthy?
