Tom Cruise wants another baby, was “lovebombing” Katie while he was away

This morning, Kaiser asked a very relevant question: Why has Katie Holmes disappeared for the past month only to surface immediately before the NYC premiere of Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol? It’s like she’s been stuffed in a closet somewhere.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise has literally travelled around the world in the past week and a half to promote his latest jaunt as (the possibly washed-up) super-spy Ethan Hunt. He’s walked red carpets solo in Dubai, Moscow, Munich, Madrid, London (not to mention those fake fans in Mumbai). Now we have these photos from the Rio premiere on Wednesday, which took place immediately before Tom ‘coptered out of there and flew back to New York where he and Suri were snapped ogling a baby.

And there’s the rub. It seems that In Touch has received word that Tom’s gunning for another mini-Cruise (that is, besides himself), and Kaiser’s half-joking theory about Tom sending Katie back to the assembly shop for some “reprogramming” might be more correct than we’d like to seriously believe. It’s a scary possibility, really. However, in that vein of thought, Tom has been keeping tabs on Katie’s whereabouts while he’s away by “lovebombing” (a term of art where cults are concerned) her in their own home. Of course, Tom’s so hardwired to the Scientology mindset that he probably believes he’s only truly expressing his unconditional love to his amazing, remarkable, utterly devoted wife. In reality, what he’s telling her is to stay put, enjoy the pampering, and get prepared to pop out another one:

Tom Cruise’s real “mission” is to get Katie Holmes to agree to baby number two.

Tom Cruise may have been 5,000 miles away from his wife Katie Holmes, but he wasn’t going to let that stop him from serving her a super-romantic dinner in their Beverly Hills mansion. According to an insider, Tom recently hired the sushi chef from famed restaurant Nobu to prepare all of Katie’s favorites — and even got an assistant to make sure the table was bedecked with candles and fresh flowers. “She spent more than $3,000 on the sushi chef alone,” the insider marvels. “But he’ll do anything to keep Katie happy.”

You can say that again! On an all-out campaign to convince Katie, 33, to have a second child, Tom has returned to the over-the-top romance of their courtship — and has been showering her with pricey gifts on a daily basis. Even though he’s been traveling the globe promoting Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, he’s been working overtime to make sure Katie keeps him — and baby number two — in her thoughts. “Instead of pressuring her to get pregnant, Tom is trying to show her how committed her is to her,” a friend explains. And in Tom’s mind, nothing says committment like flowers. The friend reveals that Tom’s been having Katie’s favorites, orchids and hydrangeas, delivered to the house every day, along with her favorite foods. “He’s spoiling her,” the friend laughs. And it seems to be working. Even though getting pregnant again isn’t Katie’s top priority, the friend says she just might give in — for Tom.

Tom isn’t the only one lobbying Katie to get pregnant again. A friend of the couple shares that their daughter, Suri, 5, has been asking for a baby brother or sister for more than a year. “It’s Suri who really might be the one to persuade Katie to have another child,” the friend notes. After all, Katie lives to please her little girl!

So will another over-the-top courtship convince Katie to get out the turkey baster? It worked the first time, and Katie’s not exactly gaining a will while being married to Tom. If anything, she’s regressed further with the passage of time. Tom will probably get what he wants, but it might be because of Suri’s desire for a sibling also. She’s about the same age as when my daughter started asking for a baby sister; and although I haven’t given in yet, I’d like to think that I’m a bit more stubborn than Katie.

Just think — another pregnancy would do wonders to promote One Shot next year. In other words, Katie might very soon be doing more than merely wearing flats to promote another movie for Tom.

Here are a few more photos from the MI4 Rio premiere. Nice tent, Paula Patton.

    The whole thing is creepy!

  2. Aria says:

    I feel sorry for Katie and her child.

  3. ruby says:

    I think it would do Suri some good to have a sibling. She would have to share the attention and learn that she is not the center of the world. It’s an important lesson for all children and I think because she’s been so spoiled she especially needs it.

    That said I feel very sorry that Tom’s children are being raised in that cult… I hope it doesn’t impact their lives too much but I suppose that’s wishful thinking.

    • gg says:

      I think so too. I don’t know why Katie would even balk at having more – they can afford it, she’s obviously not going anywhere, and more people in the house might even dilute Tom’s controlling nature off Katie.

    • Nancito says:

      As for another Cruise sibling – I can’t see Suri giving up front and centre for anyone or anything – if there is another baby then they better be hiring round-the-clock bodyguards for the little tyke.

  4. Kelly says:

    I’ve given up hoping that Katie will come to her senses and run for her life. Suri is a spoiled little brat. It’s so sad.

    • podzol says:

      OMG yes. All the latest pictures of Katie and Suri on JJared make it look like a 5 yr-old Richie Rich out for the day with her non-descript nanny. That child is wearing the pants in that family.

      PS: Kaiser I don’t know if it affects in any way her non-appearances with Tom, but I really do believe Katie’s in the early phases of being knocked up. Then again, I also think Fergie’s pregnant, so what do I know…

    • Jaded says:

      Suri is such a spoiled brat that the arrival of a little brother or sister will probably turn her into a raging mini-monster hell-bent on destroying her new sibling’s life.

  5. charlotteanbella says:

    Off Topic: I wonder if/when Tom will acknowledge Connor as his biological child…that kid looks more and more like him every day.

  6. Jayna says:

    I think Katie is doing what she wants. Did not bow down to having a baby these last years. You know he wanted another one. She has worked steadily in albeit nonhit movies.

  7. Jessica says:

    Does anyone else think something is WAYY weird about Katie’s foot in the first picture???

  8. Zozo says:

    Honestly this makes sense, didn’t there relationship begin when he was promoting MI3?

  9. Relli says:

    Well I am sure that Bascom F. Anthony, M.D. could use the money.

  10. Sapphire says:

    He’s still got the weird lift shoes/boots going! Hmmm, any ads for sperm-donors?

  11. Criss says:

    Suri is by far one of the cutest kids in Hollywood.

  12. sandy says:

    it’s weir seeing them together like that. and suri should have a sibling.

  13. Hellen says:

    Every time I see Tom wearing those shoes, all I can think of is George Costanza in his Timberlands – he was afraid to take them off because his gf would then discover how short he really was.

  14. cruiz2 says:

    So sick of the big ass clonky shoes. It’s getting old. No more babies, please!!!

  15. Lucy says:

    My theory is she is already preggo…thats the reason she didn’t do red carpet with him and all the new pictures of her with Suri, she has loose clothes and a giant purse in front of her belly….and I have to say, Tom is looking younger than Katie these days…spooky!!!
