Tom is hoping to expand his family quite a bit!
“I want 10 children. I love kids,” Tom exclaimed in an interview with UK’s The Sun.
Tom, 46, is also dad to Connor, 13, and Isabella, 16, his adopted children with Nicole Kidman.
“I feel really fortunate to have the teenagers and a two and a half-year-old. It’s a great dynamic,” he said.
How does Katie, who just celebrated her 30th birthday, feel about expanding their family Brangelina-style?
“If I’m worried about anything, it’s if she [Katie] can keep up with me,” Tom joked. “I’m very active…jumping on couches and whatnot.”
Tom added that he’s “a great parent.
“I want to be with my kids, and they get to do all the stuff that I wanted to do when I was growing up,” he said. “My own father wasn’t there much for me and I want to be a different dad to my kids. My family is the most important thing in my life.”
(And despite his split from Nicole, he said: “Nic and I are very committed and successful in sharing the parenting.”)
In addition to raising Suri, whom he calls “so charming, so beautiful…just great,” Tom said he’s teaching Connor how to motorbike.
“I go to the children’s groups like other daddies,” Tom said. “At first people look at me like, ‘My God, it’s him!’ and they treat me a little differently.
“But then they realize I’m just a father with my kids,” Tom added. “It’s up to me to make everybody else feel okay about the fact that I’m there, and then everything just goes on.”
Tom also likes to lavish attention on wife of two years, whom he called “a very strong, gracious woman and a great comedian.”
“I like doing romantic things, such as bringing flowers and surprising her with things,” Tom said. “I love candlelit evenings with nice music.
“Married life is very good, very lovely,” he added. “I feel lucky to have Kate as my wife. She’s an extraordinary woman. She is funny and smart and she likes the same things that I do.”
