Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are reportedly planning to move back to Australia to be closer to the actress’ mum, Janelle Kidman.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, the couple has already enrolled their daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret in a prestigious Southern Highlands girls’ school in New South Wales.

The publication reports Kidman is relocating to be closer to her ailing mum who has a cardiac condition that “first raised alarm bells” two years ago. Nicole’s father, Antony, died of a heart attack inside a Singapore restaurant in September 2014.

On Friday, the Moulin Rouge star posted a photo laughing with her mother in celebration of her 80th birthday. “Happy Birthday to my darling Mumma. I love you so much. This photo is so US,” she captioned the Instagram post.

Many fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous snap, with many claiming they could definitely see the family resemblance.

“What a darling picture,” one commentator wrote. Another added, “Such a beautiful photo! Happy Birthday to your Mum,” while a third wrote, “You look like your Mumma!!”

This isn’t the first time fans have commented on the pair’s uncanny resemblance. In 2018, Nicole shared a throwback photo of her mother in her younger years, and the resemblance between the two women is striking.

The actress posted a touching birthday tribute to her mother Janelle Ann Kidman, captioning the image: “Happy birthday to my beautiful Mumma. You’ve loved me, guided me and taught me and I am so blessed to have you. Your devoted daughter”.

In the black-and-white image, Janelle has a slim, straight nose, arched eyebrows and a defined jawline – all very similar to her 50-year-old daughter’s features – and it wasn’t long before fans commented on the physical similarities between a young Janelle and the Aussie-born actress.

One user wrote, “You got your mums face and your mums hands for sure,” while another added, “She looks a lot like you, happy birthday to her,” and a third wrote, “… wow, you look so much like her … it’s like looking in the mirror! Happy birthday to your mama.”
