Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Katie Holmes is sharing her experience as a young mom.
Holmes was 27 years old when she gave birth to Suri in 2006. She has raised Suri as a single mom since splitting from Cruise in 2012.
"I was happy to become a mum in my twenties," Holmes said.
"It's been nice that our ages fit... how do I put this? Every age that my child has been and my age at that time has been a good match," she added. "We kind of grew up together."
"I have a lot of pictures. I like vintage art from flea markets. Because we're in New York, I want our apartment to be very cosy and soft -- the city around us is so intense and hard. So that's our style. And a lot of colors," the star said.
Holmes occasionally shares photos of Suri on Instagram but largely keeps her personal life private. She is still surprised by public attention to her life, including her fashion choices.
"It's a lot. It's a lot. Honestly," the actress said. "I try to keep it in perspective because it just is what it is. I try to look nice when I leave the house. I'm very private and quiet, so it's interesting that there's that part of my life."
Holmes previously told Today.com her goal in raising Suri is to bring up a "good human."
Holmes will star in the upcoming films Brahms: The Boy II and The Secret: Dare to Dream.
