Holmes and Suri were laughing while they stopped for an ice cream on New York City's East Village on Tuesday. She was also spotted at a supermarket early Wednesday in the city.
"I'm alright," the actress told America's Daily News. "Thank you," she said.

The photographs are the first images of Holmes smiling since the world learnt that she had filed for divorce from Tom Cruise after five years of marriage.
Holme's is believed to be followed by members of the Scientology doctrine to which Cruise belongs, according to several reports.
Celebrities' site TMZ claimed that two vehicles, a white Cadillac and a black Mercedes, have been keeping tabs on Holmes outside her New York City apartment the past week while she's been in New York City, though the report acknowledged another publication may be tracking her as well.
But the Church of Scientology said that no one is following Katie Holmes following her pending divorce from Cruise.
When the news of the split was announced, Holmes hoped that the divorce could stay as private as possible. "This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Holmes' attorney Jonathan Wolfe said in a statement on Friday.
"Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest." The couple have a 6-year old daughter Suri.
Suri is at the center of the divorce since Holmes is seeking sole custody of her daughter.
