Nicole Kidman Opens Up About Her Kids

Nicole Kidman has opened up for the first time about why her two older children have chosen to live with ex Tom Cruise and not her and hubby Keith Urban.

“They live with Tom, which was their choice. I’d love them to live with us, but what can you do?” she told Hello! magazine.

Nicole adopted Isabella, now 18 and Connor, now 15, with Tom but they have lived with Tom consistently since their divorce in 2001. Nicole hasn’t been seen in public with her kids since 2007 when she was filming Australia and they came to holiday with her on set.

“They are healthy and sane and together and are great, great people. So I’m not one of those people that needs to be reminded of what I have.”

She admits that having daughter Sunday Rose has made her cope without having her older children live with her.

“It’s a beautiful thing at 43 to have a two and half year old!”

Nicole has been in Sydney with Keith and Sunday Rose for several weeks, appearing on Oprah’s live Australian shows and yesterday secretly popping into the Sydney Children’s Hospital where she spent two hours chatting with children and parents, something she does every year.

And why did she and Keith chose the name Sunday? “When we were both alone, before we met each other, Sunday was the day we dreaded most, because when you don’t have someone in your life Sundays can be really lonely.

“Then when we met, we went from dreading Sunday to really loving it. It was the day when nobody was going to bother you, you could stay in bed, you could do what you wanted to do. We just thought, What a great name for our baby!”
