During his reign at the popular venue, he's been supported by his adoring wife, who recently went to Las Vegas to watch him on stage. 

At the end of June, Nicole shared several photos on social media during her trip to Las Vegas, including one of her cheering on her husband in the crowds. "Magical weekend in Vegas," she wrote in the caption.

The celebrity couple split their time between Nashville and Sydney

When Nicole and Keith aren't busy working, they love nothing more than spending time together at home with their daughters Sunday Rose, 15, and Faith Margaret, 12. 

The couple primarily reside in Nashville, but also spend a lot of time in Sydney, Australia, where Nicole's family, including her mom and sister, live. The Hollywood couple met at the G'Day LA event back in 2005, and tied the knot the following year in 2006. 

Nicole and Keith are still as in love today as they were when they first met and in December 2021, the actress spoke about the couple's marriage and how important it was for them to keep it protected from the spotlight.

After being told by Today's entertainment editor Richard Wilkins that she and Keith were the "pin-up couple for making it work" in Hollywood, Nicole responded: "We don't want to be a pin-up couple. We just want to be a couple that has a great life together."

Explaining that her marriage shouldn't be considered an archetype because every relationship is different, Nicole added: "Everyone has the right to their own relationship. "We are just very protective of our little bubble. What works for us is what works for us."
