Nicole Kidman opens up about fertility struggle and motherhood
Nicole Kidman gave a candid interview with Australia's "60 Minutes" in which she talked about her troubles with fertility and motherhood.
"Anyone that's been in the place of wanting another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility," Kidman said according to People. "Fertility is such a big thing, and it's not something I've ever run away from talking about."
The 43-year-old actress and her husband Keith Urban recently welcomed a daughter late last year named Faith Margaret Kidman Urban. The baby was born on December 28 at Nashville's Centennial Womens Hospital. She is the biological daughter of both Kidman and Urban and was born through a gestational carrier.
The new addition to the family joined older sister Sunday Rose, 2, and Kidman's two adopted children from her marriage to actor Tom Cruise - Isabella, 18, and Connor, 16. Kidman and country music singer Urban, also 43, were married on June 25, 2006.
It was after the actress gave birth to Sunday Rose that the couple decided to use a surrogate with their next child.
"We were in a place of desperately wanting another child," the actress revealed. "This opportunity arose for us, and I couldn't get pregnant."
In a previous interview with E! News, Kidman said she named her newborn baby Faith "because we needed to have that through the whole pregnancy, actually. I mean, that's what it required -- a lot of faith."
Kidman tells the "60 Minutes" interviewer, "Children are children -- you'll die for your children. And when you feel that as parent -- that's the unconditional love."
