Despite living in the public eye, Tom Cruise wants daughter Suri to have the life any kid could enjoy.

“He’s going to try, despite all the attention, to have things be as normal as possible,” a source told People, about the newly single dad, who recently split from Katie Holmes.

Tom arrived in New York on Tuesday to visit his daughter, the first time since his divorce from Katie was finalized.

“It’s going to be challenging,” the source continued. “But he’s going to have a meaningful relationship with her, as he always has. [Suri will] visit him on movie sets when she’s not in school. He’ll call her all the time.”

Since arriving from filming his upcoming movie, “Oblivion,” in Calfornia, the actor has been seen taking Suri to gymnastics lessons and also in taking a ride in a helicopter on Wednesday.
