It has been a month since Tom Cruise, 50, has spent time with his daughter, Suri Cruise, 6, after her mother and Tom's wife of five years, Katie Holmes, 33, left the relationship, filed for divorce, and got the divorce finalized in a whirlwind split.

"He's wanted to see her as fast as possible since this started," a source told People of Cruise's feelings toward his daughter, though the fact that he's been wrapping filming on his sci-fi thriller, Oblivion, kept him occupied. "He couldn't shut down production, cost people their jobs," the source said. "People count on him."

On Tuesday Tom's wait came to an end, as he was reunited with Suri in New York City. Today he is continuing their time together, taking Suri out for the second day in a row of quality time — this time for a helicopter ride above the city. "They didn't look stressed," a source told the magazine.

The terms of Cruise and Holmes' divorce stipulate that Holmes will have primary custody of Suri, but that Cruise "will have a meaningful relationship" with her, says Bert Fields, Cruise's lawyer.

Oblivion, also starring Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo and Zoe Bell, has wrapped filming and is in post-production. It will hit theaters on April 26, 2013. First, however, you can see Cruise in Jack Reacher with Robert Duvall and Rosamund Pike, out December 21, 2012.
