Parenting poses challenges for everyone. Even high-profile parents like Nicole and Keith. But they seem to enjoy raising their family and keep a close relationship with them. In fact, Nicole states that one of them is always with the kids, which might prove difficult, given those parents’ busy schedules.
When the schedules happened to clash, Nicole reached out to her sister, Antonia, and asked her for help. Antonia was happy to lend a hand and moved into the Kidman-Urban home with her own kids for a while. This commune-like life with such a closely-knit extended family is much appreciated by Kidman.
You're Getting a Sister!
After not being able to conceive with Cruise, you can imagine how overjoyed Kidman must have been to have Sunday Rose through a healthy pregnancy. In 2011, however, the couple greeted their second daughter, Faith Margaret, into the world with the help of a surrogate. Talk about reproductive options!
Nicole's only regret, as she later told Vogue magazine, is that she hadn't met Keith earlier so she could have more kids with him.
When both your parents have such glamorous careers, you're bound to get a taste of the spotlight at some point. For Sunday and Faith, it happened pretty early. While starring in the HBO hit "Big Little Lies", Kidman had her daughters participate in the show as extras.
The cameo was kept secret until the actress accidentally told the world about it during a 2018 interview with Ellen DeGeneres. Both girls went on to have extra roles in the miniseries "The Undoing" (also starring Kidman), and voice roles in "The Angry Birds Movie 2".
Big Little Husband
The TV show "Big Little Lies" deals with dark issues, that could take their toll on anyone, let alone the actors portraying the suffering characters. When filming the second season of the show, this darkness wasn't easy to deal with, but she pulled through, thanks to — you guessed it — her husband.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said she considers herself lucky to have such a supportive man to call her husband.
Loving and Losing
2014 brought a new challenge for the couple to deal with — Kidman's father's passing away. Nicole and her father were very close, and losing him was obviously hard for her.
About a month after his passing, She came as a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres show (yet again) and spoke of how Keith has helped her through it. She said that his support was so amazing it almost made her cry and that she would "do anything for that man." Now that's true love, people!
