'Tis the season! Katie Holmes’ gets 'Christmas panic'


Katie Holmes gets in “a little bit of a panic” when it comes to buying Christmas presents for her daughter. The former Dawson’s Creek star has eight-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise. Katie dotes on her child, but finds the run up to the festive season quite stressful. “We are getting ready for Christmas in my house," she told Ellen DeGeneres on her chat show.

'I start to, like, get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa'

"My daughter's eight years old, and she already has her Christmas list ready. It's written out. She's very organised. I start to, like, get a little bit of a panic because you cannot screw up talking to Santa. You cannot miss any item on that list, because if you screw that up, that's years and years of hearing about it, and then probably therapy."

The 56-year-old jokingly asked if Suri was abusing Santa and if she had a particularly long list of gift ideas. The Divergent star laughed and gave an example of how “specific” her child is.

“Like, 'I want a puppy, and then I want a pink collar that has sparkles on it that says the puppy's name. Then I want shoes for the dog...Then I want a purple clip.' Like, it's all very detailed,” she confessed.

While Katie might be struggling to fulfil all of Suri’s requests, she admitted recently that life in general, is great.

“"I feel very happy,'' she told USA Today. "And I am excited for projects that are coming up. I'm excited to do [TV miniseries] The Kennedys again. I love being a mom. It's challenging sometimes, but it's such a beautiful relationship.''
