In 1990, Nicole tied the knot with Hollywood star Tom Cruise. They stayed married for more than a decade before calling it quits in 2001. Sadly, their marriage yielded no biological children, as Nicole struggled to conceive.

To become parents, the former couple turned to adoption. They adopted their first child and daughter, Isabella, in 1992, after she was born in Miami, Florida. Four years after welcoming Isabella, the pair became parents of two following the adoption of Connor in 1996. Nicole and Tom were happy with the adoption, but the former wanted her biological children.

Nicole on Motherhood

Despite having two biological children, Nicole wanted to have more. In 2017, the woman relayed that she hoped to conceive again. However, due to her past experiences, she had doubts. Three years passed, and Nicole still did not conceive. She lamented:

"I wish I'd had more children, but I wasn't given that choice."

However, she is thrilled to be a mother and takes the role seriously. Nicole told CNN that she was ready to be a mom because she had experienced motherhood in many ways, adding that:

"I suppose my maternal instincts and drive has always been there since I was little… and that's a huge driving force of who I am... I am a mother because I love being a mother."
