Mother’s Day is around the corner (May 13) and Keith Urban is taking a moment to praise his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, for being a great mom to their two children, Sunday Rose, 9, and Faith Margaret, 7.
“She’s an extraordinary mum, she really, really is,” Keith said. “Those girls are very, very lucky, and I feel very lucky that the children I should have in this world happen to be with Nic. I don’t know anything about raising kids and Nic does, and that comes in extremely, um, it’s really made for an experience I wouldn’t have had without that. Her patience, her recognizing them as people and not just little kids is really extraordinary. Her attention to honoring their feelings and listening to them right from day one – really being attentive to that is not how I was raised at all, so it’s really beautiful to see.”
Keith married Nicole in 2006 and welcomed daughter Sunday in 2008 and Faith in 2010. The couple have been through some ups and downs in their marriage, as most couples do, but they’ve stuck by each other’s sides, sharing their love with the world.
“She’s my best friend. I’ve never had anybody on the planet that knows me as well as she does,” Keith told People. “I would love to have been worthy of somebody like Nic, but I was a long way from it when we met. Somehow we just found there was love there, real love. I literally just feel like the luckiest guy on the planet.”
Happy Mother’s Day!
