THE ACTOR’S BEEN GIVEN THE TICK OF APPROVAL TO MARRY HIS LADYLOVE
Katie Holmes’ dream Paris wedding to Jamie Foxx is on, after her parents granted him permission to marry their girl!
Sources say the actor lost his trademark cool when meeting Katie’s dad, tough-talking lawyer Martin, to ask for his daughter’s hand. But a few minutes into Katie’s 40th birthday dinner last month, it was her mum, Kathleen, who was putty in Jamie’s hands! ‘Jamie was nervous as hell,’ dished an insider. ‘Not the least because Katie’s parents have long been suspicious of his motives, and the fact that he was never even engaged to his two baby mamas.’
But, the source adds, ‘Jamie assured them that he has nothing but love for their daughter, and he will honour that once they’re man and wife. He and Katie have been unofficially engaged for a very long time. Now it’s just a matter of when they want to announce it. Getting Katie’s folks to approve was a big deal.’
They seemed like one big happy family on Katie’s birthday, as the lovebirds enjoyed dinner at their favourite New York restaurant and then stopped by Serendipity for dessert. ‘Katie’s so relieved that Jamie’s won over her parents,’ says an insider. ‘Now she’s desperate for a winter wedding in the City of Light!’
