Nicole Kidman’s publicist has confirmed that the Aussie actress is indeed pregnant with her first child. The New York Post reported this morning that she put her film career on hold, dropping out of Stephen Daldry’s post-World War II Germany drama The Reader which she was about to shoot, to protect her fetus. Nicole tried having children with ex-husband Tom Cruise, but it never panned out for whatever reason — cough, cough — so they chose to adopt two children instead. She’s reportedly suffered miscarriages in the past and seems to be taking no chances this time around. News.com.au writes,
Wendy Day said in a statement that the Australian actor and her country music singer husband Keith Urban were expecting a child and were “thrilled”.
Day said she learned only this morning that the Oscar-winning actress was expecting.
“I personally didn’t know, so I’m excited today, very excited,” Day said.
“For years I’ve seen speculation and for years it’s never been right, so I didn’t think it was right this time. And then she’s just rung this morning.”
Finally, we did it. I mean, she did it. On a kind of related note, I read that the first time Nicole and Keith Urban consummated their relationship, it went something like this.
Nicole: “Wait, hold on. THAT’S what a penis feels like? What the hell?” [Stops. Picks up cell phone. Frantically dials Tom’s number.]
Keith: [Looks on in stunned silence]
Nicole: [Tom picks up] “Tom! What the hell?!”
