Katie Holmes assures she’s `alright` post Tom split

New York: A smiling Katie Holmes spoke her first public words on Wednesday after filling for divorce from her husband of five years, Tom Cruise on Friday.

The 33-year-old was seen enjoying the American Independence day with daughter Suri.

“I’m alright,” the New York Daily News quoted her as saying, as she pushed a shopping cart carrying the couple’s adorable daughter.

“Thank you,” she said graciously.

The mother-daughter duo was spotted buying buys ground beef, hamburger rolls, strawberries and bananas as they got ready to celebrate Independence Day without Cruise.

The former “Dawson’s Creek” star flashed a grin as she strolled the aisles of a Whole Foods grocery store in Chelsea.

Holmes also grabbed a new sun hat, which a laughing Suri plopped on her head to mug for her appreciative mother.

They were accompanied by a security guard on their Wednesday morning shopping spree.

As they left the store, 6-year-old Suri gave her doting mother a big holiday hug.

Holmes is seeking sole legal custody of Suri in her divorce filing.

The brief outing came a day after her estranged husband Cruise spent his 50th birthday flying alone to California.
