(Los Angeles, California-AP) April 18, 2006 - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are welcoming the baby girl born Tuesday and named Suri.

She weighs seven pounds, seven ounces and measures 20 inches long.

A spokesman for Cruise says, "Both mother and daughter are doing well."

The name "Suri" has Hebrew origins meaning princess, and in Persian meaning "red rose."

The baby was born in Los Angeles but the exact location was not revealed. Neither were details of the birth planned under the tenets of the Church of Scientology as a silent procedure.

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