OK! Exclusive: Tom & Katie Finally Ready for Baby #2!

OK! Magazine

While Katie Holmes has been busy in the U.S., bringing daughter Suri to the Dizzy Feet Foundation’s Inaugural Celebration of Dance at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Nov. 29, and shooting indie flick The Romantics in Long Island, N.Y., husband Tom Cruise is overseas filming the action-romance Knight & Day with Cameron Diaz.

Although rumors that the couple — who celebrated their three-year anniversary on Nov. 18 — have been separated because of marital tensions and not just work, OK! can exclusively report that the Cruises have reached a deal on expanding their family: Katie plans to get pregnant sometime in the next year.

“She no longer feels like she’s just Mrs. Cruise. She’s her own person again,” a pal tells OK! of the couple’s decision. “She and Tom have their disagreements, but deep down they love each other very much. That’s what is important.”
