Thanks to Gopher, who oversaw this little tidbit on the cover of OK! magazine. (Gopher was quick to point out that she took this picture at the Chicago airport and did not herself buy OK! magazine. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

The story is about the possibility that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are expecting another baby:

What they really really really need here are some hyphens to turn his mommy to be gifts into his mommy-to-be gifts. ‘Cause I don’t think they meant that Tom’s mommy will be the gifts for the mommy-to-be.
