Nicole Kidman is a doting mum to four children, and has been praised over the years for speaking so openly about her parenting journey. The Big Little Lies actress adopted her two oldest children, Isabelle and Connor, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, and has spoken in the past about suffering a devastating miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy during this time. The star previously spoke to Elizabeth Day during an interview with You magazine on the importance of talking about her ordeal openly, explaining: "Then they're not full of shame. I do believe we help carve paths that bring us together and you go, 'Oh, ok, you're going through this, too. There is hope.'"

When Nicole met Keith Urban in 2005, the actress had been told she wouldn't conceive, but at the age of 40, the star fell pregnant with daughter Faith. She told You magazine that it was a "miracle" and recalled the moment she was in childbirth. "I was like, 'your only job, Keith, is to get me the epidural if I scream for it.' And I screamed for it. I was doing OK and then I went, 'Oh boy!'" The couple then welcomed Faith via a surrogate two years later, completing their family.
