Nicole Kidman Talks Babies….and those Other kids she has!

Parade magazine has interviewed "flatscreen" forehead, Nicole Kidman, for their latest issue.

And, according to Kidman, she's a total emotional mess and describes herself as "raw and emotional", often crying just thinking about her new baby.

She also opens up about going "to hell and back" when it came to discussing Keith Urban's alcohol addiction.

Here are some of the HIGHlights:

As a new mother to daughter Sunday Rose, Nicole Kidman has reacted intensely with "whatever that primal thing is, the need and desire to keep her very protected," she says. "People say, 'Oh, it would be so much easier if you'd just let them get a photo of her.' And I can't. I'm like, 'I don't want to. I want her to stay out of that.' Maybe that will wane as she gets bigger, and I'll be easier with it. But for now, I'm still keeping her in a bubble." Her eyes turn red and moist. "I'm raw and emotional," Kidman admits. "I cry even thinking of her. But they are tears of joy. Because I suppose I never thought I would get to have it. To have been given it so late in life—I'm so ready for it. And I think giving birth to a child, as a woman, is what we're born to do. I don't mean that to sound sexist, because many women don't get to do it, and I thought I was one of them. But at the same time, if you are given that gift, it's an extraordinary thing."

Kidman and ex-husband Tom Cruise share custody of their adopted children and, as she confirms, they were raised in Scientology. When the subject comes up, Kidman stiffens. "I just don't talk about it," she says. "Bella and Connor are 15 and 13, so we've taken them, Tom and I, almost into their adult life. To then have a birth child that I have to take into adult life, give her her wings, it's a big purpose. I know my place. Put it that way."

Kidman says, "My relationship with death used to be far more ambivalent, I think, and now it's very much about staying in the world. That's why in the past I could jump out of planes and take a lot of risks. Strangely enough, I think when you have children at 25, you still have that 'what will be, will be' attitude. It's such a different way of parenting. Bella and Connor were very free and easy, probably because they had parents who were very young and jumping around the world and pretty easygoing."

Four months after her 2006 wedding to country singer (and fellow Australian) Keith Urban, he checked himself into rehab. "We were thrown into his alcohol problem three months into the marriage, and that was big," she says. "We became the closest we could become, because we had to bare our souls. We did 10 years of marriage in three months. You go to hell and back with this—when the addiction takes control of the life, it's terrifying. But there is hope, and we work on it every day, and we are in a place of actual peace right now, which is a beautiful place. I love him so deeply, and he has done an amazing amount of work, and he is an amazing husband, and I am just very, very grateful."

    Apparently her first 2 kids are now part of that fucking cult. Tom Cruise is a disgusting human being. His kids and his new wife are just Scientology zombies now. Sad.

    How sad she should take lessons from Angelina in being a good adoptive mother, she obviously has little love for her adopted kids. I understand that having a biological kid is wonderful and like her I had my baby at an older age and for 15 years thoght I would never be a mom but, still she chose to adopt and she love the children equally. Tom Cruise may be crazy at times and stuff but, he obviously is a good dad to all his kids, you see him with the oldest and Suri and seems to love them all.

    Re: TwoGoofballs – What happened to the poo pic?



  37. 37

    Sounds like she doesn't like her adopted kids very much.



  38. 38

    Should I be offended? I am 29 ( I will be 30 in March) and I haven't gotten pregnant since I was much younger. For what ever reason I wasn't suppose to be a momma at that time. I know that there are 1000's of ways to be a family and don't think that I have to have one shoot outta my twat to be considered blessed. I wasn't born to have babies , well I hope not. If that is true then what do you do AFTER you have had the baby?
    Scary.
    But what is worse is that she seems so disconnected to Bella and Conner. As if it's like 'ok I have MY baby now, hope things work out for you." Hope them lil Scientoloteens don't read that article.

    Keith Urban just needs to knock it the hell of. And it is just that simple. "I'm an alcoholic, I need rehab, I need AA, I have a disease." The term alcoholism was created by the American Medical Association and Alcoholics Anyonmous because they didn't know how to classify these horrible drunks. Then the term later morphed into a money making machine for telling people they are diseased and beyond their own help, and must have ongoing doctor's, therapists visits, and expensive rehabs. It all boils down to a very bad habit that you have to quit. You don't need AA or theraputic sessions to do it. You can do it on your own. I was a massive alcoholic for over 15 years. I quit on my own, and have been happily sober for over 10 years. I have the occasional beer or two at sports shows, but that is about it. Once you are an alcoholic, you are not always one. You can completely recover from that affliction and resume a normal life which may include an occasional drink. It is extremely important though, that if you are in moderate to heavy alcohol withdrawal, you have some kind of medical attention. Manytimes even your local general practioner down the street can give you a 2 week supply of sedetives to conteract the withdrawals. Because they can kill you if they are bad enough.

    Having been in the situation that Bella and Connor are now in (clearly in different circumstances) I feel sorry for them. In this interview, they are made so seem inferior to Sunday Rose (love the name), which they were probably feeling already. ut I'm happy for Nicole.



  41. 41

    Perez, you know what they say about people in glass houses??? You talking about the size of her forehead is the pot calling the kettle black.



  42. 42

    She loves conor and bella, the problem is tom. he had to have full custody of the children and don't think it doesn't bother her it does. she is disconnected from them because of tom and the cult. unfortunately bella and conor can't do anything until they are 18. I think she is happy that she was able to have a baby at 40. it's not as easy as you think. it's so much easier to have a child in your 20 and early 30's. You don't think she realizes tom isn't the same person anymore. he's a freakshow.



  43. 43

    I like the way the other two kids are road-kill for Tom and Nicole both! They are better off w/out both of them. FREAKS!

    Nicole, go inject some more shit in your face! Then get on some good drugs for post partum depression before Baby Rose ends up in the bathtub alone while you turn your back just for a minute to catch a phone call.



  44. 44

    this interview touched me. i can relate. I didnt want anyone taking pics of my kids either, it was a tiny piece of them I didnt want to share. I totally understand her. having a baby, when you really, REALLY want one, changes you in such a wonderful way for the rest of your life. She'll come out of the "rawness of it all" and she'll be just fine. Its just so wonderful, how can you not cry about it all the time? Its like crying at a wedding, who can help themselves. Im very, very happy for her!

    signed,

  45. 45

    umm yeah 13 and 15 is not grown up. sorry nicole. tom is freakin crazy but even he is a better parent than you.



  46. 46

    Love her!!!! She needs to get Bella and Connor out of Scientology before it is too late.



  47. 47

    Nicole, go inject some more shit in your face! Then get on some good drugs for post partum depression before Rose ends up in the bathtub alone.

    "Bella and Connor are 15 and 13, so we've taken them, Tom and I, ALMOST into their adult life." ~~~~ Nicole didn't say that Bella and Connor are adults, she said they are almost adults. I don't think Tom lets her be involved as much as she'd like and at this point she probably feels like a normal relationship with those 2 kids is impossible. Unfortunately, she has admitted defeat and that's not her fault. Tom seems extremely controlling so how is she supposed to get around his crazy ways? No doubt he has bad mouthed her and her non Scientologist ways. I feel sorry for Nicole.



  49. 49

    Ok, I feel like Nicole is very disconnected from Bella and Connor, but the vibe that I'm getting is that it breaks her heart. She LOVES them, but Tom has them so wrapped up in Scientology that it's torn them all apart.
    Now she has Keith and Sunday. I think that they're a beautiful family and I'm sure that Keith and Sunday have a very strong bond. She doesn't talk about LOVE with Keith, it's always peace….Therefore I'm sure that Sunday and Keith are very close!



  50. 50

    I think she is probably a very good mother- she doesn't seem obsessed with her career and leaving her child. As for her two adopted kids- well, Tom pretty much cut her OUT when she wouldn't go along with the scientolocrap.
    I don't think he left her because of infidelity, I think Tom left her because she probably took the kids to an Episcopal church or something. Or let them read L Ron Hubbard's article on inventing religion to make money. Any chance those two Cruise kids had is gone. Both parents have gone on with their biological children. I don't care what anyone says- if you are adopted you KNOW it. When the biological kids come along, no one forgets that you are the one that is adopted. Even the MEDIA call them them Tom's "adopted" kids like it's a label.

    You can say what you want about Nicole Kidman, but she seems to be a very classy lady.



  52. 52

    I wonder what her adopted throw away kids think about her comments?? How cold. I guess they were just there to fill the void until she had her birth baby. They have done their jobs and I guess they have been dismissed into Scientology life. How sad for those kids. They are not adults yet! They need their mother in the earlt teen years too, Nicole!



  53. 53

    "You go to hell and back with this" i.e. I caught him cheating and forgave him…..



  54. 54

    WOW did she just basically say that the baby is more important than the other two?



  55. 55

    Re: Dazzler1 – No worries Dazzler she doesn't touch that kid unless there is a camera around. the nanny gives her her bath, her bottle,changes her diapers and gives her whatever affection she gets. Kidman injects her face,makes flops and lies in magazine stories. She doesn't bother with this kid anymore than she bothers with Bella and Connor.



  56. 56

    Wow she was one of my celeb crushes up until she did work on her face, she looks horrible. She is such a natural beauty she should have tried to age with grace, she would be the hottest milf in hollywood as it stands she looks like she is turning into another Priscilla Presley



  57. 57

    Nicole is just as bizarre as Tom Cruise, she just hides it better. She hasn't had a relationship with the older kids in years and no way do I believe she gave birth to the new one. That was a fake pregnancy.

    Something really awful seemed to take place between Nicole and Tom when it comes to their adopted children. He's such a contol freak and doesn't allow his kids to be around anyone who isn't a Scientologist. Except for photo ops like Nicole's wedding. I think he's the one who keeps the kids from her b/c since the divorce she never wants to talk about it. It's like she's scared to and if she does she'll face Tom's wrath and not even get to spend the little time she does with Bella and Connor. Plus we probably don't see her with the kids as much b/c unlike Tom she doesn't whore them out.



  59. 59

    she probably cries about her new baby because she named it SUNDAY ROAST.
    fucking incompetent celebrity.

    Ive wonder why all those years she didnt have Tom cruise Baby then when Katie comes along it pop goes the weezel im pregnant and has the little cute alien suri she is really cute even when her dad is nuts hope she turns out like katie not him. he is a little freaky



  63. 63

    Nicole Kidman is a careerist. She cares more about a career than being a mother to her adopted kids. She only married Tom Cruise because she was a huge star. Without Tom would we know who she is? She wants everyone to think she is such a serious actress but then she goes and botoxes her skin to death. Real actresses don't do that if they care about expressing emotion. I just don't have any respect for her. She is overated, overpaid, shallow, too hollywood and looks awful.



  64. 64

    Re: janebird

    You are so right. She married Tom and became famous - why I'll never know because she is the worst actor.

    I am not a Tom Cruise fan, but lets face it - he's the one (+Katie) sitting at the kids soccer games, taking them to basketball games, etc. That's the photos you see. You don't see Nicole doing this.

    She walked away from that marriage and left the kids with him - probably in exchange for a financial settlement.

    I think they're better off without her. If that interview is anything to go by, she's definitely unstable….



  65. 65

    Why are all of you low-lives so against Nicole?
    She's an amazing.. mother & actress.. & She's living her life to the fullest.
    Leave her alone! & Especially her kids.
    When you guys say shit about her kids! WOW.. that's crossing the line.
    GET A FUCKING LIFE!!
    I personally adore Nicole & Keith!
    Obviously.. Look at my name!



  66. 66

    lovely love her



  67. 67

    I think she truly loves her adoptive kids but is given limited access to them because she is not a member of the faux religion. Hopefully when they are of age, they can make better decisions on their future. When they were young, Nicole was the one who just glowed when she was with them. As for the newborn, she may have a tad of ppd. and after so long, to finally give birth to a healthy child, it is overwhelming. I am thankful each day I had three very healthy babies. There is a lot of problems in my extended family and my kids did not get them.



  68. 68

    I think Nicole Kidman is so beautiful.



  69. 69

    To be honest I NEVER hear Tom or Nic talk about their children very much. Their adopted ones I mean, let alone see pap pics of them! Lord knows, I am SICK of seeing alienhead Suri all the damn time.
