Only child: Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise dote on daughter Suri, five
OK magazine in the US claimed that Miss Holmes told friends she is expecting.
When she became pregnant with daughter Suri in 2005 Miss Holmes waited, as normal, until she had passed her first trimester to make the announcement, despite growing speculation in the press.

The couple married in Bracciano, Italy in November 2006 following Suri”s birth in April.

Her made-for-television movie The Kennedys was dumped by the History Channel in the US for apparently being historically inaccurate.
A rep for the network at the time said: “While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand.
“We recognise historical fiction is an important medium for storytelling and commend all the hard work and passion that has gone into the making of the series, but ultimately deem this as the right programming decision for our network.”
A spokesperson for Miss Holmes and Cruise was unavailable for comment.
