Will Baby Cruise Be A Boy or A Girl?
November 11, 2005

It was a media crush for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Thursday night, as the happy couple talked about their budding bundle of joy for the first time. Cruise's bride-to-be showed off her growing bump and tackled all kinds of questions, from wedding rumors to the baby's name.

"We're very, very, very excited," Cruise said. "We don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but we'll find out soon."

The Hollywood super couple spoke about the future member of the Cruise family while signing autographs for fans outside the Beverly Hilton, where Anthony Hopkins presented Cruise with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award.

"He has a tremendous warmth and energy and friendliness," Hopkins said of Cruise.

Elizabeth Taylor was also honored Thursday night, making a rare public appearance to accept the Britannia Award for Artistic Excellence. "It's a little heavy," Taylor admitted.

The night didn't slow down the rumor mill, however. Hollywood insiders were still buzzing about the rumor that Cruise and Holmes may actually tie the knot this weekend, as Tom is heading overseas in a few weeks to continue work on "Mission: Impossible 3."

"Extra" spoke to Cruise's people, and they assured us that while Tom and Katie will walk down the aisle, it won't be this weekend.
