Nicole Kidman Thankful for Her New Neighbors
'I hear he's really shy,'" Kidman told another guest, producer Tony Brown. "I'd better go over there and help out."
Kidman's embracing spirit has been noticed by others in the Nashville area, and as she tells the Tennessean newspaper, people are quick to reciprocate. When the Oscar-winning actress was 8 1/2 months pregnant with daughter Sunday Rose, she was delivering Meals on Wheels to Nashville area residents, who engaged in friendly conversation, even when she went unrecognized.
"People would be like, 'When are you going to have that baby?'" she says.
As a resident of the Volunteer State, Kidman says she has really taken that spirit to heart.
"I love doing [charitable work] because it's just being part of a community," she says. "That is what is important to both of us, feeling like we're normal and part of a community. Both of us, in terms of what we desire in life, are pretty straightforward and simple."
Relative anonymity and blending into the community has been a blessing for Mr. and Mrs. Urban, and Nicole describes most people who encounter the power couple as "incredibly friendly and easygoing." But she and Keith would rather not have that get out to the world at large.
"It's a secret. Keith keeps saying, 'Shush, shush, keep this a secret,' because it's so beautiful," she says with a laugh.
Even though both sets of Sunday Rose's grandparents are in Australia, Kidman is thankful their daughter was born in Tennessee.
"I think it's very appropriate, considering her daddy. His whole life was headed here; from a little boy, he dreamed of coming here. For him to be able to say his baby girl was born here, I think is very special. I hope she has a Southern accent."
