Baby Suri Makes Waves in Vanity Fair
September 6, 2006

She's the baby the world has been waiting to see, and in the October issue of Vanity Fair, Suri Cruise is making her cover girl debut in style.

Inside, the little cutie playfully bites her dad, Tom Cruise's, nose and gets a kiss from her adoring mommy, Katie Holmes.

"Giggling, cooing… just a sweet little baby," revealed Vanity Fair's Jane Sarkin.

Sarkin got the scoop of the century at the couple's secluded Colorado compound. She revealed to "Extra" that nothing was off limits during her 5-day visit with the world's biggest movie star and his beautiful fiancée, Katie.

"No door was closed to us," she said. "He's never done that before, and I don't think he'll ever do it again."

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz took the portraits, which were guarded by armed security until now. The couple had planned to release their own pictures months ago, but held off after nasty rumors about their daughter exploded in the tabloids.

"Katie took me aside and said that she was really very, very hurt," Sarkin dished.

Ms. Holmes comes out swinging in Vanity Fair: "It's really frustrating the amount of s--- that's out there," she told the magazine. "You shouldn't say that about us, and you can't say that about my child."

But what about Tom and Katie's much publicized decision to buy their own sonogram machine? They told the magazine it was so their doctor could visit them to avoid paparazzi frenzy.

However, even with the Vanity Fair debut of their daughter, the shutterbugs thirst for a rare TomKat photo has yet to be quenched. Photographers swarmed Katie, her mom and Tom's mom on a rare afternoon out in Beverly Hills Tuesday.

The trio did not go unnoticed as they dined at the famed Ivy and then shopped for baby clothes on ritzy Robertson Boulevard. Both families, including Tom's children with Nicole, Connor and Isabella, were present during Vanity Fair's visit to Colorado.

"Tom Cruise changed the diapers, Tom Cruise gave the baby a bottle, gave the baby a bath," Sarkin recalled. "Katie's very hands on as well."

So who does Baby Suri look like?

Well, with genes like Tom's and Katie's, the pink bundle of joy can't lose! But in her first few months, Suri has her mom's baby blues and cheeks, while she has her dad's jet black hair and button nose.

And with the magazine already flying off the shelves, fans of the world's biggest superstar agree:  that's one beautiful cover girl.
