Cruise's quickie wedding
13:30 14 October 2005
Tom Cruise and his pregnant fiancée Katie Holmes are rumoured to be planning a quickie beach wedding next month.
The smitten couple were planning Christmas nuptials but are now said to be tying the knot at the swanky Ritz-Carlton in Mexico in November - because Cruise doesn't want his baby born outside of marriage.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Tom's old fashioned. He wants his child to be born in wedlock. He's very romantic and wants everything to be in place before the birth.
"They both decided on the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun as soon as they got engaged and had set a Christmas date. Katie didn't know she was pregnant, so their arrangements had to be changed."
The source also told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "She didn't realise she would show so quickly and she's been stressed about walking down the aisle with a bump."
Earlier this week, Katie was photographed showing off a sizeable bump - sparking speculation she is more than three months pregnant as previously rumoured.
The pictures show her silky blue top clinging to her bulging tummy.
An onlooker told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "She had a very considerable bump. To me she looked more like a girl who was five months pregnant than three."
