The Cruise Clan Get A New Home

Tom Cruise has plunked down $35 million for a Beverly Hills home for himself, Katie Holmes and baby Suri, according to the Los Angeles Times. Tom had been renting a home in Beverly Hills for the past several years, but that lease runs out next year, according to the paper. Tom and Katie who married last year in a large ceremony in Italy have been rumored to be looking for a place since their wedding. The new address, which reportedly was not even on the market when Cruise made his offer, is described as a " traditional-style residence."

It was originally built as a 10,000-sq.-ft. structure in 1937, the house was expanded four years ago and currently contains seven bedroom and nine bathrooms, say those familiar with the property. The Cruises will have their privacy: the house sits on 1.3 acres behind gates and a lengthy driveway, and sports a tennis court and a pool. As for the Cruises' current residence, according to this week's issue of PEOPLE, the compound also serves as a gathering place for Cruise's children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman: Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12. And, of course, Tom and Katie‘s daughter, Suri who turned one on April 18th. The actor's mother, Mary, 70, also lives there.
