During a recent interview with People magazine, Nicole Kidman sat down to discuss something extremely personal to her and her family– her husband Keith Urban’s sobriety.
Just 4 months after Keith and Nicole said “I do” in 2007, Keith checked into the Betty Ford Center for a recurring problem with alcohol abuse.
After 10 years of marriage, Nicole shared what it’s been like to support someone battling addiction, “You can’t save someone. They’ve got to save themselves,” she shared.

For Nicole, it was especially difficult to realize she couldn’t be the one doing all the work, “It’s a very big thing for people like me who go, ‘I can take care of you. I can do it.’ At some point, you just have to say, ‘I love you and I’m here when you decide to do the work. If you don’t, then that’s it.’ “
Since getting help Keith and Nicole are living what they call an extraordinary life, “”It’s not easy, but there’s an extraordinary life if you do get there through help.”
