Nicole Kidman is taking a page out of Grace Kelly's rulebook: Choose love over everything else.

The actress, who plays the Hollywood starlet-turned-princess in "Grace of Monaco," revealed that family and husband Keith Urban are her top priority when asked by Australia's Woman's Weekly if she would leave it all behind just like her royal predecessor.

"If it were the choice between my family and Keith, and my career, I wouldn't even bat an eyelid," the 46-year-old said. "The most important things to me are the love of our relationship and my children.

"At this stage of my life, and with time being so precious, the joy I get from us as a family outweighs any joy in any other area of my life, by far."

Kidman wed Urban in 2008 and they welcomed their first daughter, Sunday, that same year. They had their second daughter, Faith, in 2011 via surrogate.

"The Hours" star rarely speaks of her two adopted children from her previous marriage to actor Tom Cruise, but the Oscar winner beamed with pride over her eldest, Isabella, 21, and Connor, 19, in the interview.

"They are generous, kind and hardworking," she said. "And these are traits that I love to see in my children."

Cruise and Kidman adopted the pair when they married in 1990, but after the actors divorced in 2001, Bella and Connor went on to live with Cruise, according to Us Weekly.
