Los Angeles, CA (April 18, 2006) – Tom Cruise, 43, and his fiancee Katie Holmes, 27, joyously welcomed the arrival of a baby girl, Suri, today. The child weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and was 20 inches in length. Both mother and daughter are doing well. This is the first child for Mr. Cruise and Ms. Holmes. Mr. Cruise also has a daughter, Isabella, 13, and a son, Connor, 11. The name Suri has its origins in Hebrew meaning “princess,” or in Persian meaning “red rose.”

By the way, Tommy. Hannibal called. He said he looks forward to meeting you for dinner. Bon appetit, buddy.
Update: In other cosmic, not glib news, Brooke Shields also gave birth to a baby girl today. Brooke and husband, Chris Henchy, named the baby Grier Hammond Henchy presumably because “Tom Cruise Sucks” was already taken.
