They are one of the most loved-up couples in show business and now Nicole Kidman has revealed what keeps the flame alive between her and her husband of 12 years Keith Urban.
Speaking to Harpers Bazaar magazine, Nicole described her marriage to the country music star as “really good”, revealing they both make sure to switch off from the stresses of work when they’re at home in Nashville, USA, together.
“Obviously I work hard, but when I’m off, I’m off,” the 51-year-old Australia actress said. “Keith and I are very good at immediately clicking off because we have a really good life in Nashville that’s very simple, quiet and nourishing because we’ve made it like that.
“We’re pretty strict with the boundaries on what we allow in terms of work into our home. I used to have an office in my house and I just got rid of it – it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I finally went, ‘This is not a good thing.’
“We don’t have a TV in our bedroom, we’re that couple. I highly recommend that. And no computers in bed.”
The couple, who tied the knot in 2006, have two daughters together, 10-year-old Sunday Rose and seven-year-old Faith Margaret. They regularly speak openly about their love for one another and Nicole previously revealed that they follow a set of very old fashioned rules, which she credits with maintaining the spark in their relationship.
Despite the popularity of smartphones, Nicole revealed she had never once text her musician husband since they said ‘I do’, preferring either “voice to voice or skin to skin” contact.
“We’ve never texted,” Nicole told Parade. “That is so not our relationship, which is interesting right? We call. We’ve done this since the very beginning. The reason it started at the beginning was because I didn’t know how to text [laughs] and it just kind of worked for us. So now we don’t. We just do voice to voice or skin to skin, as we always say.”
Earlier this month the celebrity pair also sent fans wild when they shared a video of them performing a sweet duet together, in honour of International Day of The Girl — a United Nations initiative that works to increase the awareness of inequality faced by young women around the world.
Nicole, who has debuted her vocal abilities in a number of films, including 2001’s Moulin Rouge, showed off her impressive singing skills alongside Keith in a heartwarming video captured by their daughters.
In the clip, which Nicole shared on Instagram, the loved-up couple can be seen sitting at a piano as they belt out a rendition of Keith’s hit song, ‘Female’. The Aussie actress captioned the video: “To honor International #DayoftheGirl – filmed by Sunday and Faith!!!”
