How Ironic! Shields Beats Cruise to the Parent Punch

4/19/2006 11:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

brooke tomBrooke Shields has beaten Tom Cruise to birth. Brooke had a girl, Grier Hammond, just hours before Tom Cruise's fiancee, Katie Holmes, spawned her own baby girl, Suri.

Both sets of mothers and daughters are said to be doing well.

Last year Brooke and Tom, who co-starred together in the 1981 film 'Endless Love,' traded barbs in the media over Shields' use of psychiatric drugs while suffering from post-partum depression. Cruise, a staunch critic of psychiatry, believes the ailment can be treated through exercise and vitamins.

Shields' daughter weighed in at 7 pounds even, measuring 20 inches. Holmes' little bundle of joy weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces and also measured 20 inches long.

Grier Hammond is the second child for Shields and hubby Chris Henchy. The couple's other daughter, Rowan, turns 3 next month.

Suri is the first child for Tom and Katie. Tom has two children: Isabella, 13, and Connor, 11.

UPDATE: 11:05PM ET -- TMZ cameras were outside Tom and Katie's home in Beverly Hills. We caught paparazzi milling around the grounds and cars going in and out. Word is the black Excursion in the video going into Tom's home is his. We spotted that same Excursion leaving the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre shortly before that.

I have been a fan of Tom Cruize for many years. I enjoy watching each an every film he makes. I never knew he was a doctor though.
Yes, it is said that post-partum depression can be cured with psychiatric medication. I have heard that vitamins and exercise can helps too, but it all seems like it is trial and error. I have been told post-partum depression is very rare in China because the women there comsume so much Omega ffrom all the fish oils.
I am not sure who Scientologist praise, but I know one thing. Tom Cruize should get down on his hands and knees and thank which ever God he believes in for all he has. His new found love seems to have gone to his head. I know it can make you do stupid things like...jumping on Oprah's couch for one.
I understand many people now-a-days have babies without getting married. He needs to realize no one is coming down on him for having a baby out of Wed Lock.
Lately people have been saying 'what comes around goes around.' This has been a motto of mine for over 12 years. So, all I am saying is just humble yourself a little and don't cast stones. Especially when you have things of your own you don't want people throwing in your face.
Just remember..."Carma will get you!"

Dear Tom Crusie : Have you gone mad? You can believe in what you want, Do not ever tell someone they cannot get help they need.I used to have alot of respect for this talented actor but ..Katie Holmes look like death warmed over and Brooke Sheilds looks pretty good. Tom I agree with the first blog maybe you need to stay out of others business,It doesn't look good for you, Makes me think you are on the controlling side....Katie I hope everything works out for you .
