NY Team/Most Wanted

For 2½-year-old Suri Cruise, anytime is a good time for ice cream. So said her dad, actor Tom Cruise, during a Wednesday appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. Despite having the world at her fingertips while living in New York City — where mom Katie Holmes currently stars in the Broadway production All My Sons — "the ice cream store is Suri’s favorite place" to visit in the Big Apple, Tom revealed. "It doesn’t matter the temperature [outside]."

When asked by co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Regis Philbin what might be awaiting Suri under the Christmas tree, Tom was coy, pointing out that since his daughter might be watching he wouldn’t "want to give anything away." He did confirm, however, that Suri is hoping for a furry friend to accompany her on her New York City adventures.

"She just loves dogs, loves puppies, loves animals. She’s hard to say no to, that Suri. She’s so sweet. All my children are."

Tom went on to reveal that he and Katie have found an ally in Tom’s daughter Isabella Jane, turning 16 next week, in their ongoing efforts to diversify Suri’s wardrobe! "She dresses herself [when] Kate lays the [clothes] out for her," Tom explains. "She won’t wear pants, and it’s very difficult getting the coat on…But having a big sister helps, because she looks to Bella."

In addition to Suri and Bella, Tom is dad to Connor Antony, 13 ½, with ex-wife Nicole Kidman. His new movie Valkyrie opens Dec. 25.
