So sweet! Keith Urban recently told friends he and Nicole Kidman had “nothing special” planned ahead of his 50th birthday. But little did he know, his lovely wife, together with the couple’s daughters Sunday Rose, 9, and six-year-old Faith Margaret had cooked up the perfect birthday surprise. Nicole asked Keith to marry her — again!
“Nicole wanted to do something special for Keith for his 50th and she knew popping the question and proposing a second wedding would make him smile,” a source close to the couple told Woman’s Day of the moment the actress told him her plan on his Oct. 26 birthday. “She told friends afterward it’s something she’d been planning for months.”
With family first and foremost in the couple’s life, Nicole has chosen Hawaii, where she was born, as the destination for their romantic second wedding. Not only have they traveled there on numerous occasions, but in April this year, Keith reportedly bought Nicole’s childhood home as a surprise for her own 50th birthday.
Earlier this month, the 50-year-old actress told Glamour magazine that the secret to her happy marriage with Keith is that they believe in having roles. Nicole said her country beau acts like the “tough” one, which allows her to be more “sensitive” and “raw.” She added that Keith really supported her during her emotional role in Big Little Lies, in which she played a domestic abuse victim. “Well, Keith always says to me, ‘You stay raw and sensitive, and I’ll buffer things for you,'” she said. “He is always told, ‘You’re so tough.’ And he says, ‘That’s not what I want for you, Nicole. You don’t need to get a thick skin.'”
