She has settled into her independent New York life, is flourishing on the Broadway stage and revelling in single motherhood – and now Katie Holmes is ready for the next big step: baby number two!

EXCLUSIVE: ADA NICODEMOU – NEW BABY, NEW BODY
Shaping up for her first Christmas as a mother, glowing Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou radiates happiness like a string of fairy lights. With a huge smile on her face and tiny four-month-old son Johnas cradled on her hip, she’s counting the days until the family’s festive celebrations – but she’s not counting kilojoules. ‘My outlook has changed since I became a mum,’ confides the 35-year-old Summer Bay favourite. ‘I tend not to sweat the small stuff anymore, it’s all about the bigger picture. I reckon I’m still about 5kg above my normal 48-50kg – I don’t have any scales, so I don’t weigh myself – but that’s not really important. I think it would be a lot worse to stand here like a stick figure right now, four months after giving birth, and tell other women: “You can do it too!”’
