Word on the street is that lovable ladies man Tom Cruise has finally set a date to marry his one true love, Katie Holmes. While most celebrities would try to hide their wedding date from the press, Tom wants the world to know his wedding is set for July 4th 2006 reports Best Week Ever Blog
Meanwhile, Celebrity Weekly Star Magazine details Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes’s Delivery Dramas!
1. Will Katie Be Separated From Her Baby?
In Scientology, mother and child are separated for days after birth to reduce trauma and provide to recover, says a source. The mother is discouraged from holding or cuddling the child. “The baby should not be bathed or chilled but should be wrapped somewhat tightly in a warm blanket, very soft, and then left alone for a day or so,��? Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote in Dec. 20, 1958, bulletin titled “Processing a New Mother.��? “Katie has said she is not willing to do that,��? says a Scientologist friend of Tom, “so Tom will probably agree.��? Even though it’s in black and white, a rep for Tom denies that Scientology calls for any separation.
2. No Painkillers
“A qualified doctor or midwife can be present at the baby’s birth,��? says a source, “but the person is usually a Scientologist, and the use of drugs or painkillers is discouraged.��? This means Katie will have a completely natural delivery, which leads to the next sticking point…
3. No Screaming Allowed
According to Sci-Ti dictates, women aren’t supposed to scream about the pain of giving birth, so the child can greet the world in a serene setting. Music is also not allowed. Says a source, “Katie will be able to moan, but she cannot say anything, especially anything negative about the pain or the experience. In fact, no one in the room is supposed to talk. A silent birth is about creating a calming, soothing, quiet environment during childbirth,��? according to a Scientology spokesperson.
4. Tom’s Got Her On A Schedule
Katie may appear seven-and-a-half months pregnant, but sources who have seen the actress recently say that she appears to be farther along. “Either Katie is carrying a really large baby, or she is closer to eight months along,��? says a source – which makes her recent flying visit to Australia with Tom seem ill-advised.
5. She’s Going To Give Birth In The House She Doesn’t Like!
Too bad the Tudor-style Beverly Hills, California mansion Katie and Tom are renting feels so cold and sprawling to her. She’s anxious to move, but that won’t happen until after TomKitten is born. Tom wants to give mom and baby time to heal before undergoing the stress of a move, says a source. So he’s contacted the landlord and arranged for a six-month extension on the lease!
6. They’re Arguing Over Baby Names
“Tom has talked about naming the baby after himself and three generations before him – Thomas Cruise Mapother,��? says a source. If it’s a boy, he has also talked about naming the child Ron or Hubbard (after sci-fi writer and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard), the source says. Katie, however, is concerned that calling the child Hubbard would make her baby a laughing stock. And she wants a more traditional name, like Martin, after her father. Undeterred, Tom loves to rub Katie’s belly and say hi to his “little Hub,��? a source says.
7. Does He Want Her Family Out?
Scientology encourages delivering in a room without anyone who holds negative feelings for the couple, the baby or the procedure. Could this eliminate Katie’s parents? “They have expressed a lot of concern over Katie’s new interest in Scientology,��? says a source. “But you can be sure that Tom’s two sisters (Lee Anne DeVette, 46, and Cass Mapother, 42), avid Scientologists, will be in the room. And, very likely, so will be Tom’s two adopted children, Connor, 11, and Isabella, 13, who are both practicing Scientologists.��?
