Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are planning to wait until their baby is born before they wed in 2006.

Cruise tells US broadcaster Barbara Walters in an upcoming TV special that the couple are planning a wedding ceremony for next summer (06) or early autumn, but they're yet to set a date.

Cruise has also revealed that he has bought his own sonogram machine so he can follow the baby's progress. He plans to donate the high-tech hospital equipment to an undisclosed maternity ward.
