Nicole Kidman Battled The Pain Of Losing Two Pregnancies With Actor Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman’s new photos from her beauty shoot with Tattler are making waves on the internet. The 50-year-old looks nowhere near her age as she flaunts her svelte physique in some of the most beautiful dresses of the season.

Besides taking pictures, Kidman also shared a bit about her life and work. Unlike some of her colleagues who have hordes of awards, Kidman prides herself in a handful. Ironically, she places only so much value on the statuettes and is known to give them out.

Her Academy Award for Best Actress in 2002 film The Hours ended up as a gift to her mother, Janelle, a retired nurse and feminist. Kidman gives her mother credit for instilling in her a sense of direction, especially with regards women and equality.

That’s a big thing when you have a mother who has helped shape you and probably didn’t have the career she deserved. So in some ways that’s my way of going, 'Look Mama, look! This is yours too'.

She gifted her Emmys and Golden Globes for HBO’s Big Little Lies to her daughters, Sunday and Faith. Amusingly, 9-year-old Sunday outright rejected them, saying she had about enough clutter of her own. But little Faith was more than willing to have them.

Life is good for her now, but it was not always easy sailing. She told Tattler about her miscarriages while married to ex-husband, Tom Cruise, and the pain she had to endure.

There’s a huge, aching yearning. I know the yearning. And the loss! The loss of a miscarriage is not talked about enough. That’s massive grief to women.

The first miscarriage occurred not long after her 1990 wedding to Cruise. Again in 2001, she suffered a miscarriage just around the time he filed for divorce. It was even the more painful for her because she always planned to have babies. She shared this information with Marie Claire in 2007.

From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies. And we lost a baby early on, so that was really very traumatic. And that’s when it came that we would adopt Bella.

Kidman and Cruise adopted two children while they were married, Isabella (now 25) and Connor (now 22). Although her divorce from Cruise severed her connection with the children, it seems like she might be on the road to making a comeback in their lives.

Kidman endured years of emotional trauma and has suggested that Cruise was also insensitive to her feelings. But in the end, she overcame her demons. She is happy with the new family she made with singer Keith Urban and their two daughters.
