Keith Urban Is Nicole Kidman’s ‘Great Love’
So many Hollywood relationships look pretty from the outside. Then years, or even months later, they end in divorce. This isn’t the case for country singer Keith Urban and his actress wife, Nicole Kidman, who are very much in love.
The starlet is used to having relationships in the public eye — after all, she was previously married to Tom Cruise. With this marriage, Kidman is trying to stay out of the limelight, focusing manly on the couple’s love. Part of what helps them do that is living in Nashville instead of Hollywood.
“I have stepped away from the fame part of it,” Kidman said in Vanity Fair (quote via ABC News). “I didn’t find what I was looking for in fame. So I went, ‘O.K., this is not for me.’ And it was such a blessing that I found somebody who said, ‘Well, are you willing to move to Tennessee?’ And I was ‘Oh, am I willing to move!’”
That’s quite the opposite from Kidman’s previous, high-profile marriage to the ‘Top Gun’ actor. The Aussie actress married Cruise when she was just 23, but admits now that it is Urban who is truly the one.
“With no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now,” Kidman gushed about Urban.
Now the two are even more lucky in love, and have the family to boot. It’s not always easy though, being full-time parents who just so happen to be celebrities.
“It’s a push-pull. It’s uncharted,” Kidman said. “My husband and I are in uncharted territory because we’re trying to find artistic expression but also we’re incredibly connected as a family — we’re very, very tight, very, very close, and I have a very, very primal protection of my family.”
