KATIE Holmes wants to adopt a little girl!
The actress — who split from husband Tom Cruise in June — is eager for their six-year-old biological daughter Suri to have another sibling and is looking into adoption.
“Suri has been asking for a sister lately — she’s even praying for one at night, which tugs at Katie’s heart,” a source said.
“Her goal is to have a new addition to their family within the next year.”
The insider claims that although Katie has only just begun looking into the process, she has already consulted a high-end adoption agency and would prefer to adopt a two-year-old toddler in need of a home rather than a newborn.”
Meanwhile, it’s been claimed Holmes still feels trapped by Cruise.
“Because of Suri, Katie is tied to Tom for life whether she likes it or not,” said an insider.
“If I were in her shoes, I’d be looking over my shoulder every step to see Tom’s reaction. I know how she must feel. It would be torture almost 24 hours a day. I don’t see how Katie would ever be able to relax.
“However she looks at it – she’s trapped.
“The ongoing communications between Katie and Tom about Suri’s schooling, visitation, her health or his financial obligations are certain to be a constant reminder of the control that Tom will probably always have.
Adding to her anxiety is the fact that the couple would have celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary on Nov. 18.
“She’s got to be torn up emotionally because it dredges up both good and bad memories of their marriage,” explained a source.
“And there will be a battle over Suri’s affection for the holidays.
“Katie must be fretting over where Suri should spend Thanksgiving and what she should buy her for Christmas. There’s always the worry that Tom will outdo Katie and make her feel inadequate as a mother.
“Katie must have already been out of of her mind worrying about their safety and then she had to deal with Tom trying to call from London.
“It must have brought back all the unhappy memories she had during their marriage. And Katie must have buckled at the knees when she saw one in a series of Scientology recruiting posters in the subway near her home,” the source added.
“Katie really wants to start dating again. But now she will have to struggle with how to introduce a new man to Suri, and get her to accept him, when Tom remains such a huge presence in their lives.”
