Nicole Kidman: “It Took Me So Long To Get Pregnant”

With three healthy kids, a happy marriage and a wildly successful career, actress Nicole Kidman seems to have a blessed life – and she’s not about to take any of it for granted.

“It took me so long to get pregnant and have a baby, so I have enormous gratitude,” says the Rabbit Hole star, who has 2-year-old daughter Sunday with her husband Keith Urban and adopted kids Isabella, 18, and Connor, 15, with her ex Tom Cruise. “I have two grown children with that enormous gratitude that they are healthy and sane and together and are great, great people. So my sense of knowing what I have, I’m not one of those people that needs to be reminded of what I have.”

She’s so happy with her home life that she admits she sometimes feels reluctant to sign on to new films.

“I’m in a place where I just don’t want to take on too much,” the 43-year-old Oscar-winner says. “It’s not about, `Oh my gosh, I’ve got to get all these things for myself,’ because I love being at home. But you know, my husband and my mother will say, `You shouldn’t just abandon your talent. You should still get out there and do some things every now and then, because you’ll appreciate that over the next couple of decades.'”

And I suppose deep down, I know they’re right, because part of me could easily just keep nesting and staying at home. It’s really nice.”

    Way to go Nicole, luv ya, I’m sure the hAters will find some nasty negative response to this, but who cares, Nicole & Tom are the parents of the older kids, and Keith is Sunday’s daddy, and they are the only ones who matter!!!
