Suri Cruise has a crush on Cruz Beckham

Princess Suri Cruise has met her prince… and his name is Cruz. It seems everybody’s favorite little munchkin princess has a little-girl crush on Cruz Beckham, son of David and Posh. Suri is three, and Cruz is four, so we know Suri has a thing for older, athletic boys. But will she give up her royal title to marry a commoner?

This comes from The National Enquirer, and initially I thought it was just a really cute story, but now I’m a little perturbed by the creepy undercurrent. First, the cute stuff. Suri is so in love with little Cruz that she draws him special pictures with her crayons and makes sure her mom picks up an extra chocolate cupcake (Cruz’s favorite) when Suri knows they’re going to see each other. All of it very sweet, very innocent. But then there is this: “And Suri already seems to know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Seriously? Cruz Beckham is a “man” now? And Suri the three-year-old is hyper-aware of the way to “please her man”? Gross:

Little Suri Cruise has a crush!

The adorable 3-year-old daughter of Hollywood heavy-hitters Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes has flipped for Cruz Beckham, the 4-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham – and she’s been trying to woo him with cupcakes and crayon drwings.

“It’s too precious for words,” a close friend told The Enquirer. “Little Suri is smitten!”

The famous tots share frequent play dates since their parents are close friends and neighbors. They often have outings together to Coldwater Canyon Park in Beverly Hills, and both take art classes at The Children’s Art Studio in Los Angeles.

“The children are wonderful playmates, and Cruz has become sort of a big brother figure to little Suri,” said the friend. “She lights up whenever he’s around.”

After a recent art class, Suri gave Cruz one of her drawings, telling him it was a “special gift just for him,” said the friend. “She drew stick figures of the two of them – hers pink and his blue.”

“They were standing inside a gigantic heart, holding hands.”

And Suri already seems to know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Suri insists Katie buy a chocolate cupcake for Cruz during their twice-weekly outings to Crumbs Bake Shop in Beverly Hills.

Suri seems to have worked her charm on Cruz.

“Cruz is always begging Victoria to take him to Suri’s house because he loves jumping on her trampoline and playing on her jungle gym,” said the friend.

“They’re also both learning French and Spanish, so they practice together.”

Tom, Katie, Victoria and David get a kick out of their toddlers’ friendship. “They think it’s a hoot,” added the friend.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, May 25, 2009]

It’s probably all very innocent, but there were a couple of double entendres in there if you have a naturally dirty mind (me). Cruz loves to hang out with Suri “because he loves jumping on her trampoline and playing on her jungle gym.” Hey, slow down, cowboy! Oh wait, they mean an actual trampoline. Right. I knew that.

So do Suri and Cruz have a love match that will stand the test of time? They might, actually. The Beckham family seems invested in their relationship with the Holmes-Cruises, so I bet Suri and Cruz spend a lot of time together growing up. Hopefully, Cruz will understand how to treat Suri like the princess she is as the years go by, and twenty years from now we’ll be reading about their semi-royal wedding. Just as long as Suri doesn’t try to put the moves on Kingston Rossdale, who is obviously going to end up with Zahara Jolie-Pitt.

Cruz Beckham is shown playing on 5/6/09 and 5/7/09. Credit:

    She is three, she doesn’t know the first meaning of a crush or infactuation. I think what the National Enquirer meant to say was that Suri has found a play mate in Cruz. Very normal for toddlers.

  2. geronimo says:

    Um, sorry, kaiser, but you’re the one sexualising this, not the NE. If you read the story without your commentry, all you get is a sweet (if slightly sickly) story about two small kids.

  3. KDRockstar says:

    These poor kids are going to want to slit their wrists as teens when they read this drivel about themselves. They are not the stars… leave them alone.

  4. Anna says:

    Agreed, Geronimo.

    @Pufft: I had my first crush on a boy when I was two and I remember it perfectly. I caused a scandal in kindergarten because when I saw him, it was love at first sight and I just moseyed over and kissed him. So while we don’t know what’s with Suri and Cruz, I say it’s definitely a possibility that she does, in fact, have a crush on him.

    However, I personally think that this might have a little less to do with actual what we grown ups call being in love and more with the fact that Suri is probably overjoyed to be allowed to play with someone her age who is not tainted by Scientology indoctrination and is more carefree than her controlling parents. She’s just happy to be allowed to be a kid!

    I think it’s a little creepy when adults talk about babies and toddlers as if they’re adults in this way — “Oh, he’s such a little ladykiller!” “She’s such a flirt!”

    I secretly wish those kids grow up gay.

  6. Ria says:

    Ok, my daughter is three also, and there is not way she can draw stick figures and hearts so you can tell what they are(nor can any child in her dayschool class of three year olds – just three – not 3-1/2, almost four, etc – just like Suri’s age). I’m calling BS or maybe Katie is drawing pictures of her and Becks.

    My daughter has a boyfriend at school and another at home. The school boyfriend makes her pallet for naptime and then puts it up afterwards. He also helps her put her shoes on and off.

    The boyfriend at home is an older boy across the street. She lights up when he comes over and when we go there. We pick up extra candy to take there, she asks to go play, etc. It’s all normal kid stuff.

  8. eternalcanadian says:

    Um, just to put a pin in thie balloon of happy heterosexual pairings, but anyone even stop and think there’s a 50-50 chance the kids won’t be into opposite-gender relationships? ;)

  9. Courtney H says:

    eternal: the likelihood of that is actually much lower than 50%. even high estimates put the figure more around 20% of the population. i realize what you meant, though :) .

  10. embertine says:

    Aw. Whatever I may think about the crazyness of Cruise, you have to admit that that little girl is the cutest thing EVER. And this is from a child-hating spinster.

  11. Leighton says:

    This is the stupidest story I have ever seen. These kids are 3 and 4? And Suri Cruise is already doing “dance shows” and getting her relationships dissected on the internet? These kids are going to be severely messed up teens.

  12. Annie says:

    I think it’s adorable. Kids behaving like kids. NE’s coverage is sickening, but the two kids enjoying each other’s company? Not so much.

    And as for the picture drawing part, I believe it. My little sister was extremely bright at a very early age and could formulate full ideas that would surprise you.

  13. MARKY MARK says:

    From what I gather this Cruz kid has a lot of energy and personality–We all had someone like him in our pre-schools-the one the other kids flocked to:and to Suri he looks like a fun playmate–The enquirer is just being the enquirer—INSANE

  14. Wresa says:

    First, we were discussing her social life, and now we are discussing her romantic life…what’s next, pregnancy rumors???

  15. j. ferber says:

    Ria, that is just adorable. My 4 year old daughter likes older boys–she got the 9 year old boy across the street to come to our house, introduced him to all her stuffed animals and made him read Amelia Bedelia to her (he couldn’t read the script part, so my husband had to). I have the photo of them and she has a huge smile plastered across her face. Little kids are just too cute.

  16. Kiki says:

    Ugh! Who writes this garbage?

  17. Liz says:

    Seriously, sexualizing a 3-year-old’s crush is disgusting. She’s 3 freakin years old!!! Sure, little kids have adorable little friendships and crushes and stuff, but this is taking it too far. Leave the little girl (and boy!) alone!

  18. Magsy says:

    I guess we’ve offically run out of Holmes/Cruise fodder if the media is now cooking up love stories about their little babies.

  19. Moon says:

    WTH?? The Beckhams as “commoners”?! As far as I know and can see all along..the Beckhams are exactly the true royalties of the commoners which make them SLIGHTLY lower than the actual monarch of the British, and the European too, and perhaps even the whole world! That means, they the royalties of the common people all over the globe. The difference between the Beckhams’ and the so-called Cruise-Holmes’ royalty is that the Beckhams actually try to live as much as the common citizens despite their vast fortune and wealth, while the Cruise-Holmes are just distancing themselves from other people more and more! We can clearly see that from the children appearances and their day to day activities. And this story is sick!! How can you dare to sexualize the innocent friendship of a toddler?!

  20. RJB says:

    Enough already, many of us are sick and tired of hearing about Suri, Katy and Tom. Lets hear about someone that is worth while.

  21. Persistent Cat says:

    So it’s come to this has it? No Jen/Angie/Brad stories to blow out of porportion so you are seriously covering this? This is why I visit this site less and less. It used to be good, now it just grasps at anything.
