She is reportedly "leaning toward" a career in fashion and applied to several different high-profile colleges — but Carnegie Mellon is especially prestigious.

As for her proud mama, the Batman Begins actress is said to be "overwhelmed" by her daughter's next stage in life. A separate insider told the outlet, "Katie takes great pride in her but is also extremely overprotective."

"What has been really important for me with my daughter, because she was so visible at a young age, is I really like to protect her," Katie told Glamour in a past interview. "I’m very grateful to be a parent, to be her parent. She’s an incredible person."

Katie's protective nature may also have to do with her daughter's non-existent relationship with her ex-husband. The pair split in 2012 and the mother-daughter duo later moved to New York to live a quieter life away from the spotlight.

"Suri does not know her father anymore and she has not spent time with him in a decade," an insider previously explained. "Tom has always maintained his responsibilities when it comes to financial obligations to Katie and Suri."

The insider shared that Tom pays for all "medical, dental, insurance, education, college and other extracurricular costs."
