Things don’t seem too happy at the Cruise and Holmes household.
The National Enquirer is reporting that Tom Cruise is desiring another baby while wife Katie Holmes isn’t too eager for another one right now.
“It is as if the relationship has become a battleground over the baby issue,” a source said.
“Friends and loved ones believe if Katie doesn’t have another child soon, Tom will pull the plug on their marriage.”
I know some of you out there might be thinking that if Tom ends the marriage it might be for the best, considering media rumors of Tom’s controlling ways. Apparently Holmes – who had daughter Suri (4) with the Mission Impossible star – told an interviewer that she isn’t planning on expanding the family anytime soon.
“Maybe in a couple of years, but right now I want to make sure I’m really there for Suri,” she said.
“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!”
This was not music to Tom’s ears. According to a source, Tom went “ballistic.” over the comment.
“I think he’s furious because not only has Katie backtracked on a long-standing promise to produce another child, but she’s embarrassed the fiercely private actor to no end by saying so in the magazine interview,” the insider explained.
“Tom assured Katie last year that she could focus fully on her career for a while, but he still hoped that she would get pregnant this year.
“Tom thinks she was acting selfishly with her about-face on having a baby.
“I’m sure Katie often feels she’s under Tom’s thumb, and work is an escape for her.
“At one time, she did want more kids. But another baby will mean giving up freedom right now.
“It’s a standoff. Either Tom or Katie is going to give in, or the marriage is done for.”
Do we think their marriage will be over soon, or will Katie give into having another baby?
