LOS ANGELES – 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.

The baby was born in Los Angeles but the exact location was not disclosed.

It’s the first child for Holmes, 27, and the first biological offspring for Cruise, 43. Cruise has a daughter and son from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

Details surrounding the birth, which was planned under the tenets of the Church of Scientology as a silent procedure, weren’t disclosed.
