Katie Holmes and Tom CruiseKatie Holmes is pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Cruise, according to reports from the US.

The couple were spotted dining at The Ivy restaurant in Los Angeles last week when onlookers claim fresh-from-Broadway Katie hinted she is expecting.

A fellow diner at the restaurant told OK magazine that the couple spent the whole meal smiling at each other and when they came to leave, Tom placed his hand on Katie’s lower belly and she held it there: “It was identical to how Tom used to stand with Katie when she was pregnant with Suri.

“And the way they looked at each other! You could see the love in their eyes and there was a feeling that they were sharing something very special at that moment.”

The couple welcomed their first child Suri in April 2006 and have been repeatedly rumoured to be trying for the second baby since then. A source close to the family added that Tom, who also has two children from his previous marriage to Nicole Kidman, is desperate to expand their clan: “Tom would love to have another baby! There’s nothing that gives him more pleasure than his role as a father.

“Suri has been such a joy for Tom. As far as he’s concerned, he’d be happy to have another girl. Katie feels the same.”

Earlier this month, Katie returned to Los Angeles after a run on Broadway in All My Sons.
