What’s Behind The Change Of Heart Katie? Holmes Now ‘Open’ To
Having More Kids — But Wasn’t A Year Ago!

By Jon Boon

It appears Katie Holmes has done a sharp 180 when it comes to the subject of having more kids, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

As we previously reported, the 34-year-old recently told Allure magazine that she is “open” to the idea of adding to her family — however, a family insider claims that towards the end of her marriage with Tom Cruise, the "Dawson’s Creek" beauty was adamant that she did not want any more kids!

“I think it was just that Katie didn’t want to have another baby with Tom,” the insider tells Radar.

“He was very interested in adding to the family early last year and giving Suri a brother or a sister, but Katie kept putting him off.

“She would tell Tom that she wanted to concentrate on her career, or that they should focus on bringing up Suri first.

“Either way, Katie made her excuses and turned him down whenever it came up for discussion because she had enough on her plate.

“In fact, around that same time, Katie was talking to her family about divorcing Tom — so having another baby with him would have been the last thing on her mind,” the insider reveals.

Since splitting with Tom, Katie has continued to blossom, even posing almost topless in a sexy ad campaign for the jewelry company IRIS.

She is more confident than ever,” a friend of hers told Naughty but Nice .

“She would have never been allowed to do a shoot like this when she was married to Tom. He was very controlling and had strong views about what projects she would accept and pass on. Now, Katie is making all the decisions about her career and her life as a single mom.”
