In a recent interview, the Oscar winner and current Best Actress contender, Nicole Kidman, opened up about her struggles with fertility over the years.
The mother of four welcomed the newest addition to her family, baby Faith, on Dec. 28 through a gestational carrier, but says she "had a roller coaster ride with fertility" beginning with a miscarriage before she split with Tom Cruise in 2001.
She explained on Australia's 60 Minutes last night:
"Anyone that's been in the place of wanting another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility. Fertility is such a big thing, and it's not something I've ever run away from talking about."
Although she was able to give birth to her 2-year-old daughter Sunday Rose with her husband Keith Urban, Kidman revealed the couple turned to a surrogate because of her fertility struggles, saying:
"We were in a place of desperately wanting another child. This opportunity arose for us, and I couldn't get pregnant."
Well, we are so happy that, despite the struggle, U were able to have another child, bb!
The Rabbit Hole star went on to explain her love for her children, saying:
"Children are children — you'll die for your children — and when you feel that as parent, that's the unconditional love."
Aww! Sounds like those kids are in good hands!
