Actress Katie Holmes is not ready to marry "right now", despite her recent engagement to new love Tom Cruise.

The former DAWSON'S CREEK star and the Hollywood hunk began dating in April (05), and after a whirlwind romance and many public displays of affection, Cruise popped the question in Paris, France last month (17JUN05).

However, at only 26 years old, Holmes wants to enjoy her engagement before becoming the third Mrs Cruise.

Holmes says, "Everybody in LA says they never want to get married, well I don't want to get married right now, but I do want to grow old with somebody."

When Cruise and Holmes do decided to get married, she will be stepmother to ISABELLA, 12 and CONNOR, 10 - Cruise's children from his 10-year marriage to Nicole Kidman.
