Katie Holmes gives birth to Suri Cruise

And to go along with the name that the child will be teased about for the rest of her life, she's got the Church of Scientology to deal with too. It's almost like being born with a handicap.

Yahoo -- The Tomkitten has arrived. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the high-profile pair dubbed TomKat by the media, had a baby girl Tuesday, said Cruise spokesman Arnold Robinson. The baby, named Suri, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measured 20 inches long, he said.

"Both mother and daughter are doing well," Robinson said in a prepared statement.

The name Suri has its origins in Hebrew, meaning "princess," or in Persian, meaning "red rose," the statement said.

No word on whether any drugs were administered, whether it was a silent birth, whether any Thetas stopped by with gifts, or whether Tom Cruise actually ate the placenta.

He'd probably want to do that last one kinda fast. I hear those don't keep too well...
