Every December, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, and their daughters Sunday Rose, 9, and Faith Margaret, 6, board a plane to Australia to celebrate the festive season with their loved ones. But this year, the clan has decided it's time to make it less an annual event, and more of a more permanent move!

Hot on the heels of Nicole pledging to take on more work in Australia, Woman's Day reported that the couple, who both turned 50 this year, has decided to make Sydney their permanent base. "Nicole has been longing to move back to Oz for some time now," a source close to the couple revealed. "She and Keith have always said they'd eventually settle here, they were just waiting for the right time."

And it appears that time could be now. Nicole has found huge success in home-grown projects including award-winning film Lion and acclaimed TV series Top of the Lake: China Girl. Having been showered with praise for the roles both in Australia and overseas, Nicole has said it's important to her that she continues to support the Australian film and television industry. "I'm as definite as you can be in this world and this life," she said of her plans to take on more work Down Under.

"There is hopefully more to come (in Australia). I hope that is not it. There is a lot of things still happening… it is exciting," she continued. Also making the journey home more pressing is the fact that Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret are inching ever closer to their high school years.
