Katie Couric's first day at CBS News was nothing short of a huge surprise scoop, as Katie shared with millions of viewers the first picture of Suri Cruise, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' child, as taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for this month's yet-on-stands issue of Vanity Fair. The pictures show what appears to be a lovely, normal couple, acted to perfection by Tom and Katie, admiringly smiling down on and giving kisses to their baby girl. Which also prove Jada Pinkett Smith right, when she declared that Suri had a very thick head of dark hair.
So, now, I suppose the real question that has us all annoyed - why the wait? Why the big secrecy campaign? After all the couch-jumping, PDA excitement of Tom...it seemed that he would only continue his publicity spree with Suri's arrival. Then again, if you consider Tom's first two children's history with the public, Suri's long awaited debut is nothing. Isabella and Conor, Tom's adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, were kept under wraps for three years before the photographers got a snap.
In the meantime, Suri is understandably pale - she hasn't seen much of the light of day! Maybe we will see her again as she enters kindergarten?
Needless to say, congrats are due - now that we know she exists, I can safely say It's a Girl!
