Daughter for Cruise
13:30 03 April 2006
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are having a baby girl.
The Hollywood couple spent $20,000 on bedding and furniture suitable for a daughter during a massive shopping spree at the Petit Tresor boutique in Los Angeles, inadvertently revealing the sex of the child.
The store's co-owner Samantha Winch told America's Access Hollywood website: "It's very easy to rack up an expensive bill especially when you are as excited as Katie is and it's your first baby."
Among the items chosen by Cruise and Holmes, were wallpaper featuring classic nursery rhymes, a $178 nappy bag, a stuffed elephant, and a faux-mink teddy bear complete with several items of designer clothing, including a $155 shawl.
The shop's other owner Nina Takesh said: "The bear was adored by Katie and Tom, and Katie can't stop squeezing the elephant."
The couple's first child is expected this month and will allegedly be born in complete silence in accordance with the rules of the Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a devoted follower.
