Video: First public photos of baby Suri

updated 9/6/2006 10:39:38 AM ET 2006-09-06T14:39:38

With a cherubic face and a shock of dark hair, Suri Cruise — subject of the world’s most anticipated baby photo — made her debut Wednesday on the cover of Vanity Fair.

The magazine’s 22-page spread of 4½-month-old Suri and her famous parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, includes photos taken by Annie Leibovitz for the October issue, on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on Sept. 12.

The cover photo shows Suri peeking out of a jacket worn by Cruise with Holmes looking on. Katie Couric, in her first night as anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” revealed the photo Tuesday.

Born April 18, Suri had not previously appeared in any published photos, prompting some public speculation about her very existence.

“She has Kate’s lips and eyes,” the 44-year-old Cruise is quoted as telling the magazine. Counters Holmes: “I think she has Tom’s eyes. I think she looks like Tom.”

Leading up to the frenzy over the photos, “We were just living our lives, being a family,” Cruise says. “Actually, we were taking our own photos and always planned to release those at the right time.”

But “then all the craziness began,” Holmes, 27, says. “This ‘where is Suri?’ controversy. Tom and I looked at each other and said, ‘What’s going on?’ We weren’t trying to hide anything.”

Holmes also explains their purchase of a sonogram machine, saying she and Cruise were followed by paparazzi and as a result, her doctor had to make house calls.

“The sonogram was for his use!” she says.

Holmes says of her daughter: “She’s a glorious girl. She’s the miracle of our life.”
