Tom Cruise 'Orders Katie Holmes to Gain Weight & Get Pregnant'

January 13, 2009 by dino

Tom Cruise is desperate to have another baby – and has ordered wife Katie Holmes to gain weight and get pregnant, it has been claimed.

The pair – who are parents to daughter Suri, 2 – reportedly agreed that if Katie was to accept a role on Broadway, she’d have another child afterward.

And now the actress’ stint in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons is over – after the play wrapped at the weekend – and Katie is back in Los Angeles, Tom is urging his wife to prepare for a second pregnancy. 

A source tells British magazine Now, “Tom believes Katie needs to focus on their family again. She’s had her time being ‘Katie Holmes’ instead of just Tom’s wife, but in return she agreed to have a second child as soon as that time’s over. In Tom’s eyes, that’s now.

“Tom badly wants a baby. He thinks that if Katie has a little more weight on her, it’ll help the conception and also be healthier for her and the baby during pregnancy.

“He wants them to be parents again by the end of the year.

“As far as Tom’s concerned, he kept his side of the bargain by allowing Katie to concentrate on her career; now it’s time for her to keep hers.”

Tom – who has adopted kids Connor and Bella with ex-wife Nicole Kidman – has made no secret of his desire to have a big family.

He said in a recent newspaper interview, “I want 10 children. I love kids.”
