Nicole Kidman has opened up about her fears of being an “older mother” to her two beautiful daughters with husband Keith Urban – Sunday Rose, 8, and four-year-old Faith Margaret.
As she approaches her 50th birthday next year, the star has shared that she hopes she is around long enough to see her children “thriving” as adults.
Opening up to CBS Sunday Morning, Nicole revealed “It makes me sad — I would just like to be here long enough to have my children grow up and for me to see them thriving.”
“So that’s all I ask,” the star continued tearfully. “And that my husband and I are with each other. Simple! Simple requests.”
Nicole, who also has two children – Isabella and Connor – with her first husband Tom Cruise, also revealed the impact of her own father’s death last year, and how her family’s unwavering support helped her through the darker times.
“When my father passed away, I literally was down saying, ‘Please, give me the strength just to be able to wake up tomorrow.’ Because I was shattered beyond belief at that.”
“I didn’t even know how to get up from this. I had a husband that came right back. I called him screaming and crying. And he was about to go on stage. And he walked off stage and he got on a plane — he had just gotten there.”
“He flew six hours and he was right back there. And he literally picked me up and pretty much carried me through the next two weeks. And I also had, you know, my children going, ‘It’s gonna be all right, Momma.’”
