Not really a TV post but just how freaky is it that Tom Cruise's daughter with Katie Holmes, and Brooke Shield's second child with husband Chris Henchy were born on the same day? You will of course recall that Cruise toed the Scientology party line against psychiatry when he critcise her use of the antidepressant Paxil in an interview with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush. Shields had bee prescribed Paxil for post-partum depression following the birth of her first daughter Rowan. He also implied that the drugs - which Shields weaned herself off of before becoming pregnant the second time - had put her career in the crapper. Shield's response to Cruise's "concern" for her was an op-ed piece in the New York Times that outlined exactly what she went through.

The new "Tomkitten" is named Suri (which means "princess in Hebrew and "Red Rose" in Farsi). Shield's second child is named Grier Hammond Henchy.
