Kidman hopes for baby for Holmes

KOLLYWOOD: Nicole Kidman's adoptive children are desperate for a baby brother - and she's calling on ex-husband Tom Cruise's wife Katie Holmes to give them one.

Kidman and Cruise adopted Isabella, 17, and Connor, 14, before their 10-year marriage ended in divorce in 2001.

Kidman subsequently married country singer Keith Urban and had daughter Sunday Rose in July, while the Top Gun star wed Katie Holmes in 2006, seven months before welcoming daughter Suri together.

And although the two teenagers dote on their younger sisters, Connor is desperate to have a brother.

And Kidman is hoping Holmes will step up and provide a new tot for the family.

She tells Britain's Easy Living magazine, “Connor and Isabella are very adoring of Sunday Rose. They’re used to having a little one around because of Suri. Bella is very maternal. Connor would like one of us to have a boy. Katie?”
