One Child Is Enough For Katie Holmes…For Now

Katie Holmes is tired of the media speculating about her plans to have a second child – because she’s putting off pregnancy for at least “a couple years”.

The actress/fashionista has been dogged recently by rumors she’s expecting a little brother or sister for her and husband Tom Cruise’s four-year-old daughter, Suri – and her spokesperson has continued to shoot down the claims.

Now Holmes is speaking out herself, insisting one child is enough for her to handle – for now.  She tells Marie Claire magazine,

“Maybe in a couple of years, but right now I want to make sure I’m really there for Suri. I’m the youngest in my family – my closest sister is five years older than me, and the next one is nine years ahead of me, so I was a bit of an only child, and I liked it! I liked having all of my mom’s attention, and sometimes I think I still do.”

And the way Suri can get her mom’s attention?  By the way she does her chores.

“We travel a lot, and so for me, it’s keeping a daily schedule for Suri that never changes,” Holmes tells me. “We wake up, and we do the same thing. She does her chores. I think it’s very important. If she doesn’t get her chores done, I notice she’s not really herself. She has to make her bed, she has to take her dishes to the sink, she has to put her clothes in the laundry — you know, that basic stuff. I try to do what my mom did for me … just spending time with her, making doll clothes and planting in the garden … When Suri comes to the set, we have art projects, and I just try to keep her busy and inspired.”
