Let the couch-jumping begin: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are expecting a baby. Holmes’ pregnancy was reported Wednesday by People magazine. The couple have been dating since April and became engaged in June. “Tom and Katie are very excited, and the entire family is very excited,” Lee Anne DeVette, Cruise’s spokeswoman, told People.

It would be Holmes’ first child. Cruise has two children, Connor, 10, and Isabella, 12, from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

No further details were available. Devette added that Holmes, 26, “has never felt better.”

Cruise, 43, is now shooting “Mission” Impossible 3.”

Let the jokes commence.

    I wonder who the father is?

  2. Patrick T. McGuire says:

    I am certainly glad you posted this news, I have been breathlessly awaiting word on this. Geez, I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for OTB keeping me up to date with all the breaking news out there.

  3. Jay says:


    It’s the immaculate deception.

  4. I guess the Mission wasn’t quite so impossible after all…

    That is what stuntmen are for.

  6. Patrick,

    You could look elsewhere for your news. I’m pretty sure James isn’t forcing you to look.

  7. DL says:

    With these actors, their marriages are nothing but a series of sequals of failed “B” movies to begin with.

  8. Roger says:

    What’s really scary is what he’ll name the kid. Hubbard Cruise?

  9. Scott says:

    James: I was going to post that too, because I keep wondering if she’s going to have the baby “naturally” (no drugs).
