During her first marriage, Nicole Kidman failed to conceive biologically, leading her and her husband, Tom Cruise, to adopt. After she married her second husband, Keith Urban, she chose a life outside of Hollywood, and a surprise happened at age 40 while living at his rural farm!
Nicole Kidman wanted to have children as soon as she and Tom Cruise were married. At the time, the actress had just started her career and met Tom at 22 during her audition for the 1990’s “Days of Thunder.”
After falling in love and getting married that same year, by age 23, Nicole was pregnant with her first child. Sadly, she lost the child to an ectopic pregnancy, leading the couple to opt for adoption.
They initially adopted a baby girl, Isabella, before her brother, Connor, joined the family. Reports revealed that the actress conceived again before suffering a miscarriage. Still, it all coincided with the heartbreaking news that she and Tom were divorcing, with Nicole stating this about her losses:
“There’s an enormous amount of pain and an enormous amount of joy on the other side of it,”
Tom cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for his divorce. He and Nicole never publicly explained what had caused their separation, but rumors said it had something to do with the actor’s role in the Church of Scientology.
The actress never fully joined the church, and because her children with Tom were part of the faith, she allegedly became estranged from them. Connor and Isabella were raised in the religion after living with their father after their parents split.
A year after her divorce, Nicole won an Oscar Award for her role in “The Hours.” Back in her hotel room, the star didn’t feel as fulfilled as she thought she would be but felt utterly alone.
The actress questioned what she would do now that she was divorced and envisioned a different path. One where she owned a farm in Oregon and a life as a single mother.
MEETING THE MAN OF HER DREAMS AND BUILDING A FAMILY WITH HIM
During her 2017 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Nicole confessed that she had a massive crush on Keith Urban when she first met him in 2005 at a Los Angeles event. At the time, she’d thought he wasn’t interested in her.
The “Lion” star revealed that Keith never called her for four months after their initial meeting! During an “Oprah!” interview, Keith later admitted that it was like Nicole was floating when he first saw her.
In 2011, while speaking to her “Just Go With It” co-star, Jennifer Aniston, for Haper’s Bazaar, Nicole recalled praying to God about Keith when she saw him. She negotiated with God that she’d remain “completely devoted for the rest” of her life if she got a man like the singer, adding:
“I remembered praying after I met him that I’d meet somebody, if not him, like him.”
