Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are incredibly candid about their own love for each other, but they usually keep their children out of the spotlight, until now.
The couple have shared an intimate family photo in celebration of their eldest daughter Sunday Rose’s birthday, proving that just like most other parents, they can’t help but gush with pride about their offspring.
In the gorgeous black and photo, Nicole and Keith are seen cradling their newborn daughter with looks of utter adoration on their faces.
They captioned the photo: “Ten years ago today our little girl came into the world. You are our joy Sunday Rose. We love you, Happy Birthday.”
Nicole has since given birth to the couple’s second daughter Faith Margaret, aged seven, and has two adopted children from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise.
It’s a rare glimpse into the private life of the couple, who, while they’re open about their own relationship, have been careful to keep their girls out of the limelight.
Both Nicole and Keith have said in the past they work hard to keep their family together despite their hectic work schedules and will regularly fly across the world to be with each other, whether that means meeting Keith at one of his shows or keeping Nicole company on set.
The pair have been married for 12 years now and last week shared a peek into their stunning 2006 wedding ceremony at the beachside Sydney suburb of Manly.
Nicole also recently opened up about the very old fashioned rules she credits for keeping the spark in their relationship. The actress says she’s never text her musician husband once since they tied the knot – and prefers either “voice to voice or skin to skin” contact.
Shunning modern technologies like instant messages, texts and emails, the couple instead use FaceTime or even book last minute flights if they find they’re missing each other.
“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.”The Hollywood star said she doesn’t like how texts can be misread by someone, or may mean involving another person in the relationship – something she believes should be private.
