With additional reporting by Nisha, Sarah and Danielle.

Tom Cruise, 43, and his fiancée, actress Katie Holmes, 26, are expecting their first child together.

Though no due date or gender has been revealed, Tom’s publicist (and sister) Lee Anne Devette said that "the entire family is very excited" and that Katie "has never felt better." Tom also has two children, Isabella, 12, and Connor, 10, with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman.

He and Katie begin dating six months ago, and got engaged in June at the Eiffel Tower. They have yet to announce a wedding date. Katie was allegedly a virgin who was waiting for marriage but apparently could not resist Tom’s masculine wiles.

Sarah says: Perhaps this isn’t the sham relationship many thought! I had assumed he was sterile. And the Katie’s a virgin rumor? Not true. She made that comment in ’98 to CosmoGirl-years before her longterm relationships with Joshua Jackson and Chris Klein. I’m going to guess that she’s about 16 weeks along after looking at that People photo.

Danielle says: It has been previously rumored that Tom’s boys couldn’t swim so I wonder what will be spun of this. If she’s pregnant, maybe something fell in by accident?

I received this insightful comment from CBB Reader Nicole: "Better hope she doesn’t suffer from severe postpartum depression….the kind that isn’t fixed by vitamins and exercise…"

Thanks to the over 150 people who emailed Danielle to let us know about this. Thanks also to Danielle’s husband who suggested the moniker "TomKitty" for the baby.
