Katie Holmes has proved her friendship with Victoria Beckham is still strong by offering to babysit the star's three sons.
Beckham is currently away from the family home in Los Angeles scouting for a house in Milan, Italy, where her husband David is living while he plays for top soccer club AC Milan.
The family left their three children, Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, six, and Cruz, four, in L.A. under the care of her mother-in-law Sandra, who reportedly had to fly back to London early.
But Holmes quashed recent rumours that the pair's friendship had cooled, by stepping in to look after the youngsters so her friend wouldn't have to cut short her trip.
The actress has been photographed taking the boys on an outing with her two-year-old daughter, Suri, to Santa Monica, California on Sunday (22Mar09) to visit the Childrens Art Studio.
A source tells British newspaper Metro, "Katie offered to babysit during dinner in Nobu. She has offered to let Victoria stay at her home in Telluride (Italy) and is being supportive. All relationships are tough, especially when you are living thousands of miles apart and Katie understands this.
"Victoria is determined to stay in L.A. and doesn't want to return to Europe but she knows that David doesn't feel the same way."
