Keith Urban has spoken about his "extraordinary wife" Nicole Kidman and their happy family life.
The American Idol judge revealed that Nicole has brought the couple’s two children Sunday, four, and Faith, two, to visit him on the set of the reality TV competition.
"Nic and I love them being around that environment," he said. "Watching people sing, perform and being around music.

"They're certainly music fans," added the New-Zealand-born star. "But they haven't watched the show yet."
Sunday and Faith seem to be following in their music-loving parents' footsteps. "Just this morning, I had the music cranked up during breakfast and they would eat a bit, then dance around the floor, then eat a bit more," he said. "What a way to start the morning, right?"
He and Moulin Rouge star Nicole once performed a duet at a G'day Australia event in Australia, but he says they are unlikely to sing together in public again. "We just enjoy singing at home," he says.
Nicole, who has recently been filming Grace of Monaco about the late Princess Grace, is supportive of her husband's judging role and will share her opinions on the contestants.
"I wouldn't say I take my work home with me," said Keith. "But Nic will always tell me if someone stands out."
Country music singer Keith will embark on a nationwide tour of America in July 2013. How does he juggle being a musician, father and husband?
"I'm immensely grateful that I get to do all of these things," he says. "Most days it’s balanced pretty well. I have an extraordinary team around me; I'm certainly not doing everything on my own.
"I have an extraordinary wife in Nic, who is an amazing mother," he added. "She just does a beautiful job of helping to keep it all in balance."
American Idol is exclusively on 5* on Thursdays and Fridays at 9pm.
