Papa don't preach, she's gonna keep their baby.

Tom Cruise’s future father-in-law apparently isn’t a happy camper.
Katie Holmes’s dad is said to be very upset because his unmarried
daughter is pregnant with Cruise’s child. And, what’s more, the devoutly
Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his
daughter’s involvement in her husband-to-be’s controversial religion,
[Martin Holmes] was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie, the
forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes a close friend of Cruise
as saying. Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right
thing and get married before any baby came along. After scolding his
daughter, according to the mag, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by
declaring You’re no good.
He said he and his wife were very upset by the news, according to the
source, and demanded the pair get married quickly.
Furthermore, a member of Christ the King Church, which the Holmes family
belongs to, told L&S that Cruise and Holmes’ publicist, his sister Lee
Anne DeVette, sent a letter to parishioners, asking them not to talk to
reporters. Although a family friend told the mag that the Holmes family
is thrilled by the news of a grandchild, they’re also concerned.
It seemed like Katie was being controlled by Scientologists, the friend
told L&S. Now they wonder if it’s a Rosemary’s Baby situation, where
Katie is being groomed to provide Tom with a child.
DeVette didn’t respond to The Scoop’s repeated requests for comment.
Personally I've met Katie Holmes, about 4-5 years ago at a UCLA screening series led by Curtis Hanson. She was one of the most gracious celebs I've ever met, and she's damn smart too. I'm choosing to believe she's actually in love, and when she decided she might not be...I'd expect we'd hear about that too. Enuf of this whole child bride being held captive by Scientologists, if she wanted out I think she'd go...of course there could be an evil alien inside of her that's keeping her by Tom's side...but that's an entirely different matter altogether!
