No matter how busy their lives are, award-winning actress Nicole Kidman and country music superstar Keith Urban always manage to find a way to put their marriage first.

And even though the married power couple of 11-years sometimes finds themselves in the middle of irritating false breakup rumors, Nicole can confidently say that her bond with Keith is stronger than ever after all these years.

The “Big Little Lies” star, who shares two daughters with her famous husband, 9-year-old Sunday Rose and 7-year-old Faith Margaret, is now revealing her secrets to a successful marriage.

“I think its commitment,” Nicole told “Extra” correspondent Renee Bargh at the 7th annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards. “And also just going, ‘I love you and I like you,’ and really contributing to that. I also see it as I am also incredibly fortunate to have met the person I just love being with more than anyone in the world besides my kids. I mean, that’s a rarity.”

Although being playful isn’t a requirement for a successful marriage, according to Nicole it definitely serves as a nice bonus in keeping the romance alive.

You may recall that Keith and Nicole flirted it up with each other on New Year’s Eve in Nashville when they spoke with CNN co-hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen via satellite. At the time, the couple revealed what they bought each other for Christmas, with Keith saying, “I gave Nic a backpack, some amazing jewelry, and um, things we can’t talk about!”

Afterwards, Andy asked the couple what the temperature was in Music City, and Keith replied, “Well, there’s only one ball dropping tonight!”

After his response, Nicole reacted in shock and joked that she would take over the interview from there.

“He’s cheeky, you know that,” Nicole told “Extra” while recalling that particular New Year’s Eve moment. “I’m very lucky. He’s got an incredible sense of humor. He’s a great guy. He’s fun, very fun.”

We just can’t get enough of these two, y’all!
