Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban have been inseparable since the pair fell in love in the early 2000s. 

HOW KIDMAN MET HER HUSBAND

Kidman was coming off her marriage to actor Tom Cruise with whom she shared two children when she met Urban in 2005 at the G'Day USA gala, which honors Australians in Los Angeles.

She kept herself busy with her acting career straight after her divorce, but five years on, Kidman felt the loneliest she had ever been, sitting in her Beverly Hills Hotel after winning an Oscar. 

The actress had decided it was time to start working on her personal life when she and Urban stumbled into each other at the event. She initially thought Urban did not like her when they first met because he showed no interest in her. 

Surprisingly, Urban called her four months later, the pair hit it off immediately, and they started dating shortly after. On Kidman's birthday, Urban surprised her with a motorcycle trip to Woodstock, New York.

He showed up outside her New York residence with gardenias at 5 a.m. At that point, Kidman believed she had found her soulmate, also partly because she was a romantic.

It did not take long before the couple tied the knot in a wedding attended by multiple celebrities, including fellow Aussies Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Naomi Watts.

Their beautiful wedding ceremony was held at Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel on St. Patrick's Estate at Manly in Sydney, Australia. Afterward, the couple left for their honeymoon in French Polynesia. 

In October 2006, their marriage hit a couple of snags when Urban checked himself into rehab months after saying I do, due to his substance abuse struggles. At the time, he had relapsed. 

The country singer had been to rehab twice before and was open to Kidman about his issues and addiction to drugs like Cocaine. The actress planned an intervention after this, and Urban has been able to stay sober since.

Kidman was eager to have kids for Urban, and she gave birth to their first child, daughter, Sunday Rose, in 2008. The pair then welcomed their second daughter Faith Margaret, through a surrogate in 2010.

Speaking about her struggles with fertility, Kidman revealed she wished Urban and her met earlier because she would have loved having more kids for the country singer.

However, the pair purchased a farmhouse in Australia the same year their first daughter was born for a staggering $4.5 million. For decades, the couple raised their daughters between their homes in Nashville and Australia.

On his part, Urban declared that meeting Kidman and getting married was not life-changing but life-beginning.

The pair, one of the least scandalous couples in Hollywood, live a very private life, but Kidman recently showed off their Australian Farmhouse seven years after they purchased the property.

The Bunyan Hill Georgian-style home was built in 1978. The house still retains traditional traits, including a modest foyer and a billiard room. A library with floor-to-ceiling wooden bookcases lining the wall is right across the hall from the billiard-room. 

One stunning feature of the house is the formal living room with a grand piano and a fireplace. The living room is painted white and creme color, but the spaces in front of the house are darker.

The dining room has a large wooden table with space for eight, and it also has a fireplace. There is a children's plastic playset for their two kids in the far left corner of the dining room. 

A hen house and a small cottage for visiting guests are located behind the house. Here, a less sophisticated kitchen is discovered. The house also features a large orchard and is home to six alpacas and black Angus cows.

After buying the house, the couple added an 18-meter swimming pool, a full-size tennis court, a new gymnasium, and 2250-meters long grass-covered mounds to line the roadside boundary and guard against the prying lenses of paparazzi. 

This Australian farmland provides the family time and space to enjoy a simpler atmosphere and stay away from the glamour of Hollywood. According to Kidman, the air, the simplicity, and the peace are what she enjoys the most about farm life.

THEIR FAMILY

Kidman revealed her daughters enjoy traveling the world with her. Instead of the kids staying home when she has to work, the doting mother takes them along, which means a lot to her. 

The family is very supportive of one another, and she would not have been able to act without them. The Australian native expressed how lucky she is to have Urban by her side and praised him as a wonderful husband and father.
