With fiancée Katie Holmes close to giving birth, expectant dad Tom Cruise still found time on Saturday to sit for a brief interview on German TV to promote his movie Mission: Impossible 3, set for worldwide release next month.
Speaking on the program Wetten, dass ..? (loosely translated: “Wanna Bet?”), Cruise said he arrived directly from the airport but worried he would have to head right back again “because Katie could be having our baby at any minute.”
In fact, he said that two pilots were at the ready to fly him home should Holmes go into labor. “If Katie calls, I’m gone.”
He also assured his interviewer that Katie was feeling good.
As for marriage, he said they would tie the knot over the summer. “First the baby, then the film,” he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press. “Then, in summer, we want to get married. I won’t let this woman get away.”
Mostly Cruise discussed M:I3 and how arduous the stunts were, though as he was saying goodbye, his hosts managed to sneak in one last question about the impending arrival.
Have the parents-to-be picked out a name? Yes, Tom answered, though he wouldn’t reveal it.
