It was no doubt an emotional reunion, so it's no wonder Suri Cruise was feeling shattered last night.
The six-year-old has spent the entire day with her father Tom and appeared to be falling asleep in his arms as their day came to an end.
It was the first time the pair had spent time together since Tom and Katie Holmes announced their divorce.
Suri was still wearing the same orange summer dress that she was spotted in earlier on in the day, and also had with her the same cuddly toy.
Tom had apparently taken his youngest child to her gymnastics class before heading back to his hotel with her.
The dark-haired youngster was obviously feeling ready for bed and flung her arms around the actor and buried her face into his neck.
Tom headed straight to the Big Apple after shooting on the his latest movie Oblivion wrapped in California on Monday and he flew in overnight.
Suri was seen cuddling her father again with one arm and clutched a soft toy in the other as he carried her into the Greenwich Hotel.
They later emerged, seemingly having changed outfits, with Suri switching from casual red flip-flops into a pair of burnt red patent flats - although her orange dress remained the same.
Tom also seemed to have freshened up, wearing a navy T-shirt instead of a light blue shirt.
His sister Cass Mapother was also seen arriving at the establishment with toys in tow.
Tom had no contact with Katie when he made a five minute visit to her apartment to collect their child earlier this morning, according to TMZ.
Tom and Suri were last spotted in public together on June 16, when they dined at Sushi Samba in Reykjavik, Iceland, along with Katie.
It was no doubt an emotional reunion for father and daughter, who have been keeping in touch via phone and video chat in recent weeks.
It would have been even more poignant given last night's scare which saw Katie and Suri involved in a car accident, capping off a tumultuous time for the little girl.
The former Dawson's Creek actress and daughter were riding in the back of a black Mercedes sedan when it was struck by a dump truck in New York yesterday evening.
No one was reported hurt in the incident, which onlookers say was minor.
One source said: “It was nothing major other than the fact that it was Katie Holmes.'
Police arrived on the scene and noted the actress' chauffeur-driven vehicle had sustained a large dent and several scratches to the rear driver side panel after the Volvo truck - from Classic Sanitation Recycling New York Corp - had apparently backed into the luxury vehicle.
Katie - who filed for divorce from her daughter's father, actor Tom Cruise, last month - and Suri were not seen at the scene of the crash.
Last week the Mission Impossible star's lawyer, Bert Fields said the actor was eager to be with his daughter again, adding: 'Tom loves Suri very, very much, as he does his other two children. Tom is a family man, and dedicated to his children. They are the centre of his world.'
Tom's older children Isabella, 19, and 17-year-old Connor from his marriage to Nicole Kidman have both been spending time with him in recent weeks, including sombre birthday celebration on July 3.
Following her split from Tom on June 29, Katie has secured primary custody of their little girl in an undisclosed divorce agreement.
It was recently revealed she has enrolled Suri into New York's Convent of the Sacred Heart School.
The conservative school - where former pupils include Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton - was chosen because the actress wants her daughter to have a Catholic education, rather than being taught at a Scientology school as the Mission: Impossible star desired.
