Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are celebrating after becoming parents to a healthy baby girl in Los Angeles yesterday.

The couple plans to call their daughter Suri, according to a statement from publicist Arnold Robinson, who insists "mother and baby are doing well."

Suri, which is Hebrew for Princess, is Holmes's first natural child--the actor has two adopted children, Connor and Isabella. It's the first child for Batman Forever star Holmes.

Cruise recently revealed he and his fiancee arrived at a name for their child after coming across it in a book.

He said, "Friends of ours gave us a book and we just opened it and instantly came up with the name."

The couple now plans to wed later this year after Cruise has delivered another baby--his latest Mission: Impossible adventure in May.

Holmes and Cruise started dating a year ago and first announced the news of their baby plans last October.

Ironically, baby Suri was born on the same day as Brooke Shields' new daughter Grier. Cruise and Shields launched a war of words last year when the Scientologist actor criticised the Blue Lagoon star for publicly championing medication that helped her overcome post-natal depression following the birth of her first child.
