Nicole Kidman: ‘I hope every month that I’m pregnant’
Nicole Kidman is baby crazy. And the things coming out of her mouth are exactly what you’d expect from a woman eager to be a mother again.
“I love babies ... kids, they are just extraordinary,” the Australian actress told radio hosts Jackie O. and Kyle on Australia’s KIIS 1065 on Friday. “I hope every month that I’m pregnant, but I never am.”
Not that Kidman has a small family -- she’s already a mother of four. She and ex-husband Tom Cruise adopted two kids, Isabella, 21, and Connor, 19, who stayed living with their dad after the actors split in 2001. Add to that Sunday, 6, and Faith, 3, whom she shares with husband Keith Urban.
“I would be jumping for joy if [I got pregnant],” Kidman continued. “I’m 47, it won’t happen.” (Faith was born via surrogate.)
Co-host Jackie O offered the blond stunner some encouraging words, saying that her gal pal got pregnant at 49. “That’s incredible, what a fabulous thing,” Kidman replied. “My grandmother had her last baby at 49, so you never know.”
Kidman joked that Urban, whom she married in 2006 when she was 39 and he was 38, wouldn’t necessarily share her excitement. “He might not be jumping for joy,” she said, laughing.
Though Kidman wants to fall in love again with another child, she seems to have found true love with her husband.
In August 2014, Kidman gushed about her country-crooner mate in Net-A-Porter’s online magazine the Edit. “Keith always says, ‘We’re lucky we met late in life,’” Kidman said.
“‘The sadness of that is we can’t have six kids together, but the greatness of that is [we are done] with all the other stuff, so now we are totally present for this.’ That’s a great thing to hear from a man.”
Kidman can be seen next on the big screen with Colin Firth in “Before I Go to Sleep,” which opens on Halloween.
