Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Engaged to be Married

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are now engaged, which will either end speculation that their relationship is a publicity stunt or fuel it.

Cruise, speaking at a Paris news conference with Holmes, said: “Yes, I proposed to her.” The couple often shared smiles and blushes as Cruise turned to look at her, with a massive diamond ring on her finger. “It was early this morning at the Eiffel Tower, so I haven’t slept at all,” he said. “Today is a magnificent day for me, I’m engaged to a magnificent woman.” Asked why he chose the famed Paris landmark, he said: “I’ve never been to the Eiffel Tower. It’s Paris, it’s a beautiful city, it’s very romantic.”

Cruise said no date for a wedding has been set: “We haven’t discussed that — one step at a time,” he said. “Let’s see. We’re not sure.”

Cruise, 42, was in Paris to promote the French release of the Steven Spielberg film “War of the Worlds” next month. He and 26-year-old Holmes went public with their romantic relationship in April.

Let’s just hope Katie is taking her vitamins.
