Tom Cruise buys sonogram machine for Katie Holmes

Movie star Tom Cruise has made an unusual purchase for his fiancee Katie Holmes - one that will let them see the development of their baby.

The 43-year-old actor said the couple will do their own sonograms, which show fetus development with ultrasound waves. Cruise said he will donate the machine to a hospital after the baby is born. Sonogram machines range in cost from $25,000 (Ђ21,200) to $200,000 (Ђ170,000) .

Holmes' pregnancy was announced in early October. The couple, who have been dating since April, became engaged in June.

Cruise said he didn't know if the baby is a boy or a girl. He has two children, Connor, 10, and Isabella, 12, from his marriage to Nicole Kidman. It will be the first child for 26-year-old Holmes, AP reports.
