Their bond in Scientology now sealed, Tom Cruise, 42, proposed to Katie Holmes, 26, early this morning at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, just two months after their relationship was announced in April.
“Today is a magnificent day for me, I’m engaged to a magnificent woman,” Cruise, who is in France promoting his new film War of the Worlds, said magnificently.
Reporters spotted a large object reputed to be a diamond ring on Holmes’ finger, the weight of which seemed to cause her to lean to the left.
Cruise said, “Yes, I proposed to her. It was early this morning at the Eiffel Tower, so I haven’t slept at all.”
Why here? “I’ve never been to the Eiffel Tower. It’s Paris, it’s a beautiful city, it’s very romantic.” And very magnificent, of course.
Holmes, who co-stars in the new Batman Begins, will be Cruise’s third wife. He was married to Mimi Rogers, then Nicole Kidman for ten years and the pair share custody of their two children. Holmes was engaged to actor Chris Klein for five years, but he goes home without the cigar.
No wedding date has been set. “We haven’t discussed that – one step at a time,” admonished Cruise. Holmes spoke not.
