He's one proud dad!
Tom Cruise hit up London nightclub Chinawhite on Thursday, and, no, he wasn't there to go dancing. The actor was on hand to support his 17-year-old son Connor, who was deejaying at the hotspot. And he brought his nieces and nephews along, too.
"Tom walked in and went straight over to Connor and hugged him," says an onlooker. "Then he sat down with a glass of water in the corner and just proudly watched his son for the rest of the night."

After besting Spain in the gold medal game Sunday, some of Team U.S.A.'s Olympic basketball stars celebrated at TAO/Marquee's Club Bud in London.
Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony made the bash a family affair, bringing wives Vanessa and La La, who both happened to be wearing leopard-print dresses.
"Kobe rarely left his wife's side," a source tells PEOPLE. "They were very affectionate as he had one arm draped across her as she danced against him."
As the night wore on, Alicia Keys's husband Swizz Beatz, who was DJing, invited the basketball stars on stage and blasted Queen's "We Will Rock You" – before spraying the crowd with champagne.
Rapper Nas was also on hand for the celebration, and closed out the evening with a surprise performance that had the nearly 2,000 partygoers singing until well past 3 a.m.

With two successful Olympic outings and six gold medals between them, swimmers Natalie Coughlin and Nathan Adrian had plenty to celebrate when they went out for late night Lebanese food on Monday.
Adrian, 23, and Coughlin, 29, were joined by fellow gold medalist Matt Grevers and his fiancée Annie Chandler when they grabbed 3 a.m. kebobs at a London's Ranoush restaurant.
Adrian – who had attended a party with Michael Phelps earlier – was also spotted giving Coughlin a back rub. But even though the two have been seen hanging out in London on multiple occasions, they are just friends: Coughlin is married to California-based swim coach Ethan Hall.

Johnny Weir is fabulous. The figure skater, who placed sixth in the 2010 Winter Olympics, has been skating professionally since he was 12 and is no stranger to fierce competition – and fantastic costumes! With winning routines set to hits by Lady Gaga, the sparkle-loving athlete also recently married and now will blog for PEOPLE.com with the same fun energy he brings to the ice.
I love the Olympic Games.
The Olympics are an event that few can fathom but all can enjoy and that's why athletes work our whole lives to put on the greatest show on earth. My hope from this Olympic Games is that people don't lose faith in the Olympic movement.

Tennis player Andy Murray won Olympic gold (and revenge!) Sunday when he unseated world champion, Roger Federer, who beat him at Wimbledon last month.
After four losses (three to Federer) in the Grand Slam finals, Murray surprised spectators when he defeated Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to win the men's single finals at the Summer Games.
"The atmosphere was unbelievable," Murray, who is Scottish, said of the crown in London. "They helped me get a few extra miles an hour on the last couple of serves, that's for sure. The adrenaline was pumping. I went for some big serves and got them. To be fair the whole week they've been amazing."
Federer won the silver medal for Switzerland while Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina was awarded bronze.

Australian glamour mingled with Swiss elegance on Saturday in London, as Nicole Kidman helped launch Omega House on behalf of the watchmaker, an opening timed to the Olympic Games.
Kidman, 45, and her husband Keith Urban, 44, were the guests of honor at a soiree held by Omega, the official timekeepers for the London 2012.
The couple braved a crowd of enthusiastic fans to get into the building, but later looked relaxed and held hands as they mingled with around 400 guests in the garden, including actors Eddie Redmayne of My Week with Marilyn and Kit Harington of Game of Thrones.
They also watched some Olympic swimming action, and their timing was perfect, as Kidman beamed when Team Australia won the gold in the women's 4x100 relay.
