It’s no secret that the dad-of-two is supportive of his wife. “I have the most extraordinary partner in life. I will always say that about him,” Nicole told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m one of the very fortunate women in the world to have had a wonderful father, and I have a wonderful husband, and I’m just very — I love to be able to say that because to talk about the good men that have influenced me and affected me.”
Nicole knew from the moment she met Keith that he was the one. “It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York,” the blonde beauty told People in January about her first interaction with “The Fighter” singer. “That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.’”
The “Female” crooner and the Destroyer actress share two kids — Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8. Do the girls take after their parents? Keith revealed that their kiddos both play instruments and Sunday even has an interest in acting, but Nicole doesn’t want to steer them in a certain direction.
“You can’t really get kids into anything, I’ve realized,” the Oscar winner told Vanity Fair. “You can push them a bit, but motivation is a really hard thing. I mean, nobody motivated me to be an actor. If anything, they tried to deter me.”
The mom of four is also just like us! She even created a couple of household rules for her kiddos. “They don’t have a phone, and I don’t allow them to have an Instagram,” Nicole told the outlet. “I try to keep some sort of boundaries.”
So, what is the secret to their lasting marriage? Well, according to her, it’s super easy. “[It’s] extremely simple with what we want from each other and what we want from a relationship,” she said. “Just peas in a pod in that regard.”
The Grammy winner feels the same way. “Nic is so unbelievably open. She doesn’t keep things in or bottle up. She’s a really great communicator,” he gushed to HITS magazine. “Because of her, if I open up, every day, I’m listening and growing and learning. If I’m a better man, it’s because of her.” Ugh, we just can’t get enough of these two.
