It seems Katie Holmes is someone Victoria Beckham can rely on when she needs a friend to look after her children at the last minute.
After reportedly falling out with her mother-in-law over babysitting arrangements, it was Katie Holmes' turn to take charge yesterday.
The actress was seen out and about in Los Angeles with two-year-old daughter Suri and Victoria and David's youngest two boys, Cruz, four, and Romeo, six, MailOnline reported.
Along with another helper, thought to be a nanny for the Beckhams, they all ventured out in Santa Monica to go to The Children's Arts Studio.
Suri looked cute as she held Katie's hand, dressed in a blue-spotted dress and red-striped cardigan, complete with her favourite accessorry - a cuddly toy.
Meanwhile Cruz and Romeo cut a cool look in jeans and shirts and looked excited as they headed into the centre.
Perhaps Victoria had asked Katie to babysit as a favour after falling out with her mother-in-law Sandra recently.
The fashion designer was reportedly forced to rush back from Milan last week, where David is on loan to A.C. Milan, after her mother-in-law Sandra decided she wanted to go home to London.
Sandra was babysitting her three grandchildren, including Brooklyn, 10, while Victoria was househunting in Milan.
But a source revealed: ‘Victoria had been househunting in Milan, but then Sandra decided she wanted to be at her daughter’s birthday, so Victoria had to fly back early. Sandra and Victoria had a row.’
After looking gaunt and tired recently following a punishing detox diet, Katie is said to have undergone a £30,000 makeover during a recent trip to Tokyo.
She reportedly spent just under 48 hours camped out at the Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo for intensive pampering sessions by a team of beauty experts.
Among the purchases were hair extensions, spa treatments and tooth veneers.
