Nicole Kidman Wants More Babies At 49, Says Her Grandmother Did So With Their Family's Strong Maternal Instinct
Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman might have it all but she is hoping for something big this year. The 49-year-old actress said that she hopes to have another baby with husband Keith Urban and she's leaving it all up to hope.
It's no secret that Kidman has a hard time conceiving and had a miscarriage as a younger woman. Her two older kids with Tom Cruise — Isabella, 24, and Connor, 21 — were adopted, while she had Sunday Rose with Urban, 8, via surrogacy. Youngest daughter Faith Margaret, 6, was conceived naturally.
"After so many years of trying, it was so against the odds," the actress said, per The Sun. "I felt my chances of conceiving again were slimmer and slimmer, and then we got Faith," she added. She was 41 when she gave birth to her last child.
Kidman, however, strongly hopes that she gets pregnant again at 49. She revealed that being maternal is a strong family trait.
"My sister has six children," she said, according to Daily Mail. "My grandmother had her last child at 49."
Her maternal side might have also been the reason why she signed up for her latest movie "Lion." It is based on the life of Australian woman Sue Brierley who adopted a boy from India who tracked down his birth family as an older child.
Kidman said that she found a lot of similarities with Brierley and in doing the movie, they have developed a good friendship. "She had that vision, and I had a similar [vision]," the Oscar-winning mom said. "I just always knew I was going to adopt. I just always knew," she added.
Meanwhile, the actress revealed that she and ex-husband Tom Cruise are "at peace," according to News Australia. With their kids a lot older, Kidman said that Isabella and Connor have their own lives and need their parents less. But she also said that she will always be their "mother for life."
