Actress Katie Holmes, who is engaged to film star Tom Cruise, has given birth to the couple's first child.

Holmes gave birth to a baby girl, Suri, on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Both mother and baby were "doing well", a spokesman said in a statement.

The baby is the first for Holmes, while Cruise has two adopted children from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

The couple, who have been engaged since June 2005, plan to marry in late summer or early autumn, according to Cruise.

Spokesman Paul Bloch said in a statement that the couple "joyously welcomed" the arrival of their daughter.

The baby's name, Suri, came from Hebrew, meaning "princess" or in Persian, meaning "red rose", the statement said.

The baby weighed 3.4 kg (7lb 7 oz) and measured 50.8 cm (20 inches), Mr Bloch said.

No details were given about the birth itself, which had been the subject of much speculation amid suggestion that Holmes, 27, would give birth in silence in accordance with Scientology doctrine.

Cruise, 43, is currently in the middle of promoting his new film, Mission Impossible III.

Given the quality of the new version, that might not be quite so bad. Now, if we're talking Dirk Benedict in all his glory -- yeah, that might be terminal. Besides, "Battlefield Earth" was the Scientology flick.

Incidentally, I'm gonna need to see two forms of DNA evidence before I ever believe Tom Cruise fathered a child.

The real father pretty much HAS to be David Crosby, right? He seems to be the "go to guy" for that sort of thing in Hollywood.

Ack, good call, CE. I always get my mediocore sci-fi franchises confused! ;)

Yeah I see some bizarre scientology ritual behind Kate's pregnancy for some reason...

Not to imply or state in any way that Mr. Cruise needs to come out of the closet or anything!!

What's 'sense-around' like some precursor to THX that involved a bunch of huge speakers?

Sounds very retro.

Giant speaker cases that make the sound extra loud, thus making you feel like you are there.

Retro... maybe... the Knack was pretty popular then.

I...I really like the name. A lot. Very pretty, I think. But I also kind of like Apple and Moses.

As the smart ones around me point out, any kids that I may have will someday have to attend middle school, so yes, it's probably better that I not breed.

Gemma and Hermione? Why would you saddle a kid with a name like that?

I think some people find ideas for names after a trip to CVS...

This is my son Motrine, and our twins Tylenol and Advil. :lol:

That's like that one actress who named her daughter Apple. Geez!

I could see the funny, little jokes they tell to all... "This is Apple. She is rotten to the core too."

Hope she doesn't ever get worms. ;)

Hermione might be rough because it'd be really apparent where the name came from (Harry Potter books). Don't know how well that'd go -- especially if you name her before the last book gets written. :laugh:

It'd be like naming your girl Leia -- although, I have seen quite a few "Leah" (Lee-AH) names around.

That's where Hermione comes from, obviously. Gemma is from the novel A Great And Terrible Beauty

Gemma is a great name (in my opinion -- remember I also like Suri), but it's very, very common in Britain, so not even technically a weird name. Hermione is more common in Britain than it is here, but not inherently common, I'd say.

Doesn't Eric Christopher write children's sports books? Or is that Matt Christopher?

I'd like to take a moment to point out that we're now discussing baby names on a baseball message board. Rock!

My Dad was a HUGE serial western fan.

They almost named me Randolph Scott Clark. :lol:

My younger brother's middle name is Cassidy (after Hopalong)..

But my Dad came from a family of 12. And if you saw the names they gave him, and his siblings, I can't complain. ;)

I'm not sure. Eric and Christopher were the names of my two best friends growing up. Eric was also her brother's name, who passed away, and she thought it'd be nice to someday remember him by naming a child after him.

I favor atypical names too, but don't care for "Suri."

Don't name your kids after places where chicks and ducks and geese scurry.

That's definately on par with Apple and Moses. And Courtney Cox's Coco.

Matt Christopher was the author of the popular childrens sport books. I have a friend, she's English, named Gemma and it's wildly popular there. She refers to her parents as sheep for naming her Gemma Louise.

It means "get out of here" in the local language, Hebrew.

That's what Katie screamed at Tom as she was 'laying with' the REAL father of her baby.

Cruise figured it must have been one of those speaking in tongue moments and L. Ron was trying desperately to get him a message
