The son of Tom Cruise and ex-wife Nicole Kidman turned 18 on Wednesday and celebrated his milestone birthday doing what he loves: deejaying! But while most music aficionados his age would be psyched to spin records at a school dance or sweet 16 party, Connor was actually headlining a party at a London nightclub.
The budding young DJ was feted at a bash at the hip spot Boujis Bazaar – and the party, which lasted until 3 am, was sponsored by Grey Goose vodka. While there is no photo evidence that Connor was actually throwing back alcoholic beverages (though several reports stated he was), it wouldn’t have mattered anyway – the drinking age in the UK is 18.
The teen – who was casually dressed in a plaid shirt and black jeans – had a pretty lady by his side for his special day: his sister! Isabella Cruise, 20, hung out with her little bro all night and showed off a new copper-hued hairstyle. The siblings, who were both adopted, remain very close and Connor often tweets photos of them together.

Speaking of Twitter, before the party, Connor posted that he would be taking a “pregame nap cause I’m old,” sparking many replies, including one – that he retweeted – which said he isn’t old but his famous father, who turned 50 last fall, is. Ever the loyal son, Connor had a quick response to that one, which was complimentary to his dad: “This debate over age is hilarious. All I can say is you are as young and as old as you act. In regards to my pops all I can say is #IronMan.”
While Connor is tight with Tom – he resides with him in Beverly Hills – his relationship with Kidman is less clear cut. They haven’t been seen together very often since Tom and Nicole ended their marriage in 2001. One of the long-rumored reasons why is because the children are Scientologists like their father and Kidman returned to her Catholic roots after her divorce.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month, Kidman was asked by the controversial religion. "I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology," the 45-year-old, who is remarried to Keith Urban, replied. "I have two children [adopted with Cruise] who are Scientologists – Connor and Isabella – and I utterly respect their beliefs."
Connor tweeted this old photo of his sister and father last year, captioning it: 'Love my family.' (Twitter)
