December 2, 2019 16:13

Nicole Kidman’s father passed away after a tragic accident in Singapore. Back in 2014, Dr. Antony Kidman — a clinical psychologist at Royal North Shore Hospital and a director of health psychology at the University of Technology Sydney — suffered a fall, and his death was sudden.

Nicole Kidman’s late dad came to Singapore to visit his other daughter and Nicole’s sister, Antonia. Little did he know it would have been his last day.

Nicole Kidman on her dad’s death

The Big Little Lies star is known for her low-key life, meaning she rarely talks about her late father. Yet, he got candid on Antony’s sudden death and what pulled her out from the phase of grief.

Speaking to the UK’s Tatler magazine last week, Kidman admitted it was her children with Keith Urban, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose, that helped her cope with her parent’s passing in 2014.

My three-year-old (Faith) said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, you know, you have to be OK.

Although Nicole wanted to prove to her kids that their mother would be alright and they would feel happy and safe, she was suffering inside.

[But] Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally.

The Oscar-winning actress shared a photo, which was taken at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in California in 2005, alongside a loving tribute to her father to commemorate his demise in September 2019:

My Papa. Always missing you.

Nicole Kidman’s mother

The Destroyer star has been caring about her mother, Janelle, as she has been battling breast cancer for years. Nicole Kidman watched her mother battle a horrible disease when she was just a teen girl.

Although everything is quite alright with Janelle, the Aussie celebrity still lives in fear that one day, cancer would come back. Despite what might happen, Nicole will always be by her mother’s side.

Nicole Kidman knows the pain of losing a beloved one. We hope her mother will thrive and live for many years!
