'Valkyrie' actor Tom Cruise - who is married to actress Katie Holmes - wants 10 children
Tom Cruise wants 10 children.
The 'Valkyrie' actor - who already has a two-year-old daughter Suri with wife Katie Holmes and two adopted children, Isabella, 16, and Connor, 13, with ex-wife Nicole Kidman - plans to have an enormous family.
He said: "I want 10 children. I love kids. But I feel really fortunate to have the teenagers and a two-and-a-half-year-old. It's a great dynamic."
The 46-year-old star - who insists he always makes time for his children, despite his hectic acting career - is convinced his love of parenting is due to his own father not being around a lot when he was young.
He added in an interview with Britain's The Sun newspaper: "My own father wasn't there much for me and I want to be a different dad to my kids. My family is the most important thing in my life.
"I'm a great parent. I want to be with my kids, and they get to do all the stuff that I wanted to do when I was growing up."
The actor also joked about the 16-year age gap between him and 30-year-old Katie, saying: "If I'm worried about anything, it's if she can keep up with me!"
