These days, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman roll off the tongue just as easily as any other country star couple.

And, that’s no surprise seeing that the lovebirds have been married for more than a decade. The two of them celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past June!

But like all marriages, Keith and Nicole have had their fair share of highs and lows. The A-list starlet recently opened up about her relationship to Keith in an interview with Red Magazine saying that their 10-year milestone was a giant leap in their love life.

“That’s really big for us,” said Nicole, adding, “It was really up and down for the first three months. We’ve been through a lot for 10 years. And we’re stronger than ever. I say that while touching wood, and no way in a boastful way. I just say it with wonder. Absolute wonder.”

Keith and Nicole are parents to two beautiful daughters  — Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margarat, 5. The Oscar-winning actress added that her hubby considers her to be “deeply maternal.” And, we couldn’t agree more. After all, she’s also the mother to 23-year-old Isabella and 21-year-old Connor whom she adopted with previous her first husband, Tom Cruise.

Reflecting back on her previous marriage to Tom — which is something that we don’t hear about often — Nicole says, “I was so young when I got married. I look back now and I’m like, ‘What? You look at Taylor Swift I mean how old is she? She’s 26. I had two kids by the time I was 27.”

The Hollywood stars met on the set of “Days of Thunder.” They wed when Nicole was just 23 years old. But, of course, it didn’t last, and she was lucky enough to get that second chance of love with the Aussie hunk. And, through it all, she says she’s grown a lot and hopes for more happy years to come.


“When you’re older, you’ve been through things, you’ve made mistakes,” Nicole explains. “So, you come into [a second marriage], still giddy, but wanting it to last. We always consider the ‘us.’ We say, ‘Is this going to be good for us?’ It’s the simplest phrase, but it works.”
