Nicole Kidman has revealed she is considering in fostering a child, but she insists she still has "unconditional love" for her all her children. Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, the 49-year-old talked about her desire to expand her brood with husband Keith Urban.

"I'm one of the few people in the world who has experienced so many different forms of [becoming a mother]," she explained. "But I haven't had the child from a donor egg. I haven't also been a foster mother and I'm very interested in that... But I did foster a child that I met through school, an aboriginal boy."

Nicole Kidman has revealed she is considering in fostering a child

Nicole shares daughters Sunday, eight, and Faith, six, with her husband of ten years, Keith, in addition to two adopted children - Isabella, 23, and Connor, 21 - with her ex-husband Tom Cruise. She added: "I can only speak for myself. Once the bond is formed, the bond is formed. The bond is what they emphasise in terms of any sort of maternal role."

The Hollywood beauty, who has been busy promoting new movie Lion over the past few weeks, went on to admit she has the same "unconditional love" for her adopted children as she does with her biological daughters. She confessed: "I don't discuss any of my children in terms of their privacy. All I say is that there's unconditional love. I try to keep things simple."

"I haven't also been a foster mother and I'm very interested in that," she said

The comments come almost a month after Nicole opened up about being an "older mother" to her children. During an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the actress said: "I would just like to be here long enough to have my children grow up and for me to see them thriving. Right? So that’s all I ask. And that my husband and I are with each other." She added: "Just wanting to be here. I’m an older mother, so, you know … It’s that prayer of, 'Gosh, let me be here.'"
