It’s been more than five years since Tom Cruise and his former wife Katie Holmes ended their marriage — and now fans are wondering: Who is Tom Cruise dating nowadays? According to some sources, that half-decade mark meant freedom for Katie to openly discuss her relationship with Jamie Foxx. While it’s unlikely that Tom had similar stipulations when it came to discussing his love life, the father-of-three, 55, has definitely remained coy when it comes to his love life.
Of course, that doesn’t mean he’s been single, either! For months, the actor has been dating his former co-star Vanessa Kirby — and Tom Cruise and his girlfriend could be getting married in the future.
Insiders told In Touch that after Tom Cruise saw his new girl in The Crown, he knew he had to work with her. “Tom flipped for her work and told the other Mission: Impossible producers that he had to have Vanessa for a crucial role for the franchise’s sixth installment,” the insider said.
But it’s her role as the 54-year-old’s future new wife (Tom Cruise was married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes before now) that has the Top Gun star most excited. The insider gushed, “He wants to make her the next Mrs. Tom Cruise.”
Apparently his plan to bring her on for M:I6 worked like a charm — and the pair hit it off immediately. “They had instant chemistry, and of course she got the role,” the insider said. “He’s blown her away with his endless charm and energy. He thinks she’s perfect to be his next wife.”
With his desire to reintroduce his estranged daughter Suri into his life, along with his plan to be married again “by early next year,” Tom — who is also father to 24-year-old Bella and 22-year-old Connor with Nicole Kidman — is getting his life back where he wants it.
“His role as a husband and father is of the utmost importance to him,” the insider said. “He can’t wait to be a family man all over again.” Check out Tom Cruise’s dating history in the gallery!
