The star gets a surprise message of support from her daughter.

For her entire adult life, Bella Cruise has looked upon her own mother Nicole Kidman with barely disguised disdain.
Only a few years ago, she is thought to have described Nicole as a "f**king SP" – a Suppressive Person – a label given to people who either leave or speak out against the Church of Scientology, of which Bella is a devoted follower, like her dad, actor Tom Cruise.
Now, aged 27 and living in London, it appears Bella has reached out to her 53-year-old Aussie actress mum, who is currently filming Nine Perfect Strangers in Byron Bay, NSW.
"All of a sudden, a few weeks ago, Bella started liking Nicole's Instagram photos," says a source.
"Don't get me wrong, Nicole is pleased, but it's come a little out of the blue, given they've barely spoken since Bella was eight."
This comes after Bella launched an Instagram account last year to promote her T-shirt line, using both Nicole and dad Tom Cruise's surnames.

A hairdresser by trade with a passion for design, Bella lives in London with her husband, Max Parker.
Her 25-year-old brother, Florida-based Connor, is in close contact with the couple.
"The kids chose Tom when he divorced Nicole," says a source.
"Their faith in Scientology was stronger than their bond with their adoptive mother, and Nicole eventually came to terms with the fact that their relationship would be limited to a couple of phone calls a year, if that.

"But now, Bella's made a different kind of contact and Nicole has a glimmer of hope about what it all could mean.
"She won't chase Bella – she learned not to do that a long time ago, but she's hoping now Bella's all grown up she's realised she needs her mum."
