Kidman, on her part, doesn’t seem to take her due credit in her husband’s win against his old destructive habits. In 2007, she spoke about it with “Vanity Fair” and said that circumstances also played a part in the story.
As she sees it, the two had met at the perfect time. They were both lonely yet open enough to be vulnerable with each other. “We were a mixture of frightened and brave,” Nicole said.
The Wedding Down Under
On June 25th, 2006, Australian gentry gathered from far and wide to attend the couple's wedding. The ceremony was held in Manly, Australia (not far from Sydney), and attended by the biggest names down under.
The star-studded guest list featured Russell Crowe, BFF Naomi Watts, and Baz Luhrmann. The event's entertainment was covered by performances of Urban himself, Crowded House frontman Neil Finn, and Hugh Jackman.
Through Thick and Thin
While very much in love, the newlyweds faced a difficult challenge at the beginning of their marriage. Urban's old battle with substance abuse was back, threatening to ruin all the good things he had going on in his life.
Thankfully, this time he didn't have to go through it alone. With Kidman's help, he checked into a treatment facility again and emerged as a new man three months later. In a 2016 interview he gave to "Rolling Stone" magazine, he stated that it's a miracle that their marriage survived and that it was only made possible with Nicole by his side.
Expanding the Family
While Kidman was already a mother of the two children she'd adopted with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, Urban didn't have any kids. Well, until July of 2008. That was when the two welcomed their first child into the world.
They named their new daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban. Quite a mouthful for a baby, but when your parents are such a power-couple you need a powerful name to match.
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.
