Looking back on happier times in Tom Cruise‘s life, we spotted this sweet shot of him from a couple of years ago, planting an adoring smooch on the cheek of little Suri. (She looks so little there, doesn’t she?)
But of course, he doesn’t have a monopoly on affectionate parenting. Many other celeb parents have been caught by the cameras getting all mushy with their offspring. We did some searching and found a sampling of wonderful shots of moms and dads showing their love in public.
You’ll notice that the kids in these pictures are all fairly young – because of course, at a certain age, “Wanna kiss, Mommy” becomes “MOOOOMMMM! Not in front of the guys!”
Have a look at our sweet smoochy gallery – and then go give your own kids a kiss!
