After six years of marriage, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have split. The decision couldn’t have been easy for Holmes, but she had planned it well when she started renting an apartment in secret two weeks before the file for divorce. Some odd days later, the divorce between the two stars has been settled and Holmes seemed happy with the results.
It is known that through the settlement Holmes has gained full custody of their only daughter, Suri, and Cruise will be allowed visitation, but under certain guidelines.
On Monday, a source spoke about the custody settlement, “Tom is really sad at the thought of not being able to see Suri. You can tell he really loves his kids.” The child custody results contrast to Cruise’s previous marriage to Nicole Kidman. When the former couple had split, Cruise had full custody of their two children Connor, 17, and Isabella, 19.
Katie and Tom had made their divorce settlement as quick and painless as possible. Both of them released a joint statement earlier to reaffirm their commitment to work peacefully together as parents for Suri:
“We are committed to working together as parents to accomplishing what is in our daughter Suri’s best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other’s commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other’s roles as parents.” (La Times)
The full details about the settlement haven’t been revealed to the public yet. It is unknown what else Holmes has received from the settlement besides Suri.
Speaking of family, Kourtney Kardashian gave birth last Sundy to a beautiful baby girl, Penelope Scotland Disick. The reality starlet, 33,and her boyfriend, Scott Disick, 29, welcomed the new member to the family at the Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical center. The little girl was born at 7 pounds and 14 ounces.
The couple has been together for five years and already have a child, their two-year-old son Mason. Last November, the happy couple had confirmed Kourtney’s second pregnancy and went to Mexico last February to celebrate.
During an episode of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” the happy mother proudly talked about her new daughter. “I am excited to have a girl, to have a new experience. I’m really excited for Mason to not have to compete with a little brother!”
The starlet’s mother, Kris Jenner, threw her daughter a baby shower in May. The guests to the shower included the two sisters Kim and Khloe, Kanye West, Lamar Odom, and other stars.
Khloe has stated, “I have bought Kourt’s daughter so many tutus. All I want to do is dip my niece in glitter and put a tutu on her!”(US Magazine)
All of the family members have shown their excitement over the newest member. The family’s reality show displayed many proud and happy faces.
