Spitting The Dummy

by | 20th, April 2006

‘BOOK the birthing therapist. News is that Katie Holmes spat the specially made adult-sized dummy Tom Cruise had had made for her and screamed “Get me to a hospital now!” as she gave birth.

Love is…the taste of placenta

The Church of Scientology and its follower Tom Cruise dictate that the mother must remain mute in the throes of birth lest the baby become traumatised, maladjusted and suffer later in life. Nature dictates the mother should scream her head off.

And, as the Star reports, when the moment arrived, Katie ignored the signs demanding silence that had been placed around the Hollywood mansion she shares with Tom and let rip.

But while the Star watches Holmes defy another of Tom’s rules that she have the baby at home and leaves for a private hospital, the Mail hears, well, nothing much at all.

According to the paper’s sources, Katie was “as quiet as a mouse” when she gave birth to her daughter. “You couldn’t hear anything coming from the room,” says one hospital worker.

Katie is a game girl. Having silently communicated her desire to leave for hospital, Katie endured the ordeal of birth without uttering a word.

The Sun says that not only was Katie quiet but so too were the nurses, who used hand signals to tell the actress when to push.

While these versions of events appear at odds with the Star’s take on the matter, readers are offered a reason as to how Katie might have pulled off this epic feat. The Sun says Katie had an epidural.
