BABY SURPRISE FOR TOM CRUISE AND PENELOPE

Published on: October 31, 2001

Nicole Kidman is seething -- her ex-husband Tom Cruise's new love Penelope Cruz is bragging that she plans to have his baby!

Penelope has told close pals she's certain she can have Tom's child, whereas Nicole couldn't -- fueling a feud between the two actresses that began last winter when Tom suddenly filed for divorce from Nicole.

"The implication is that Nicole somehow failed Tom by not having his baby -- and that makes Nicole livid," a source disclosed.

The issue that goes on sale Friday also reveals how Penelope has sparked renewed heartache for Nicole over her miscarriage earlier this year, Nicole's continuing anguish and confusion over the breakup of her marriage ... and more.
