Nicole Kidman Talks About Her Strong Christian Faith And Raising Her Daughters Catholic In A New Interview

April 25, 2019

To Nicole Kidman, motherhood is everything. The 51-year-old actress is a proud mom of three daughters and one son.

Nicole welcomed her eldest kids when she was married to Tom Cruise. She had fertility issues and couldn't get pregnant, so she and Tom decided to adopt. They adopted their first child, daughter Isabella, in 1992, followed by son Connor in 1995.

The actress also has two daughters with Keith Urban. She gave birth to Sunday in 2008, and she and Keith welcomed Faith in 2010, born via surrogate.

The actress is known for her strong Christian faith. She’s a devout Catholic, but what about her children?

Nicole talks about raising her kids Catholic

Nicole's eldest kids, Bella and Connor, stayed with dad after their parents divorced. Growing up, they were in Scientology like their dad Tom, although it’s unclear whether they still attend the church.

There have been reports that Nicole and her eldest son and daughter are estranged.

Speaking about Sunday and Faith, Nicole is raising them with strong Christian values, the way she was raised. Keith Urban’s religious affiliation is unknown (he hasn’t talked about it), but he supports his wife wholeheartedly.

Nicole said in a new interview with Vanity Fair that she, Keith, and their daughters go to church as a family:

That’s how we are raising our children. Keith has his own beliefs but he comes, too.

I had a very Catholic grandmother, and I was raised praying, so that had a massive impact.

Nicole and Keith do their best to be present parents to their girls. When they go on tours or to film sets together, they bring their daughters and a tutor along.

Some people may find some of the couple's parenting techniques strict; Nicole told Vanity Fair that her daughters don’t have phones and are not allowed to have Instagram accounts. "I try to keep some sort of boundaries," she told the magazine.

Nicole’s road to motherhood wasn’t easy, and she cherishes every moment of it. In a 2017 interview with Glamour Magazine, she said being a parent “gives me patience, a reason to live at times, and a reason to get up in the morning.”
