A new life! Tom Cruise 'has been spending time with daughter Suri and is romancing a British woman' as he settles down in England

Tom Cruise has been making movies back-to-back since his 2012 split from Katie Holmes.

That meant the icon spent little time with daughter Suri, now aged 10, and he didn't make room for romance.

But there has been a change in the Jack Reacher star's life. According to UsWeekly, the 54-year-old actor has started spending time with his daughter again and he has found love with a British woman.

Seeing Suri again is a big step for the action star.

At one point, he went over a year without seeing the child, it was alleged by InTouch Weekly.

But in June the Top Gun vet saw the young girl again. And for his birthday in early July, he had her flown to England to spend five days with him.

The two visited the Cotswolds and stayed in the village of Bourton-On-The-Water in Gloucestershire for two days.

Then they were in London for three days.

The trip was very secret as Tom did not want word getting out about it, it was claimed, and he enlisted the help of his sister Lee Anne DeVette to make sure there were no leaks.

'Everything was treated very discreetly,' a source said.

Along for the trip was a bodyguard and Suri's nanny, but no Katie.

The insider added that Suri is 'very important' to Tom and a 'special part of his life.'

The father and daughter were last photographed together in August 2012. She lives most of the year in the Calabasas neighborhood of Los Angeles with Katie, and often the two visit New York City.

As far as Tom and Katie (who has been dating his friend Jamie Foxx, 48, for three years), they don't have much of a relationship, it was asserted.

But he has a new love in his life.

UsWeekly claimed that Tom has been seeing a 'very pretty' and 'normal' British woman. Her name was not released and it is not known how they met.

The two have been together since at least June, when he took her to the same village he took Suri to, Bourton-On-The-Water.

They stay at his rental cottage and go on bike rides in the country.

'Tom wanted some companionship,' the source said.

And he's serious about the lady. 

In addition to Holmes, he was also wed to Nicole Kidman (with whom he has two adopted children, Bella, 23, and Connor, 21) and Mimi Rogers.

In 2015 Cruise was linked to personal assistant Emily Thomas, but both denied a romantic relationship. 

This comes after Tom commented during a Jack Reacher premiere that Scientology is a 'beautiful religion.'
