The question on everyone’s minds lately is if Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban will be having more children. Together, they have daughters Sunday, 8, and Faith, 6, and she has two children, Isabella, 24, and Connor, 21, from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise.
A recent article in the Daily Mail, published January 7, quoted Kidman as saying that she “would love to have more babies” and that she was holding out “the faintest hope that something may happen to [her] this year.”
The article continued, “Keith and I would love to have more babies. My grandmother gave birth to my mother at 49! I would be beyond happy and just welcome it with open arms. Children are the joy of my life.”
Just one day later, her tune changed a bit. After presenting an award at the Golden Globes on Sunday evening (Jan. 8), Kidman caught up with Entertainment Tonight’s Nischelle Turner, who asked if she wanted to have more kids.
“No,” Kidman replied instantly “I would have loved to, if I would have had more kids, but I think I’m past that point now. But I’m very thrilled with what I have. As my husband says, ‘Let’s just enjoy what we have!’”
The Australian actress was nominated for her work in the film Lion, where she plays an adoptive mother, a role she knows quite well. She recently sat down with BBC News’ Victoria Derbyshire and spoke with her about one of the themes of Lion, which is “that an adoptive mother’s love for a child and a birth mother’s love for that same child, is the same love.”
“It makes me cry, it really is [the same love],” Kidman says. A reason she gets emotional about this topic is because she is “so connected to it,” having adopted two children during her marriage to Cruise.
Having so much love to give, Kidman is often asked if she would expand her brood, which she has previously given different answers to, but she is finally setting the record straight.
“I wish I’d had more children,” she tells Derbyshire. “My husband says, ‘that is the wanting mind, Nicole, shut it down’.”
She says she would have liked “two or three more children,” it is not a regret of hers.
“I hate to use the word ‘regret,’ because I have no regrets in terms of, ‘I am so blessed.’ But would I enjoy giving to more young people? Yeah,” she says.
Although they are done having children, Kidman and Urban seem happier than ever after 10 years of marriage. Watch their super cute karaoke of Urban’s song “The Fighter” below.
