Nicole Kidman Opens Up About Her Only Regret She Has in Life
A recent report reveals that a significant number of individuals experience infertility during their lifetime. Approximately 17.5% of the adult population worldwide, roughly 1 in 6 people, are affected by infertility. Nicole Kidman opened up about the infertility issues that prevented her from having more children.
Her only regret is not having more children.
Nicole Kidman has long desired a large family. In an interview, the actress discloses her sole regret in her life: not having more children.
Expressing her desire for more children, Kidman mentions, “I wish I’d had more children, but I wasn’t given that choice,” hinting at her challenges with fertility. “I would’ve loved 10 kids.”
Nicole went through painful miscarriages.
In 2018, Kidman spoke openly about experiencing two miscarriages during her marriage to Cruise. She shared that these losses brought her “massive grief.”
Expressing the emotional impact, she stated, “There’s a huge, aching yearning. I know the yearning. And the loss! The loss of a miscarriage is not talked about enough.”
After suffering miscarriages, Kidman and Cruise chose to adopt their children. Following her marriage to Urban, she gave birth to her eldest daughter and later expanded her family by welcoming her youngest child through surrogacy.
She also struggled with infertility.
Nicole once addressed her fertility issues in an interview: “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.”
“We were in a place of desperately wanting another child,” Kidman said. “This opportunity arose for us, and I couldn’t get pregnant...children are children—you’ll die for your children. And when you feel that as a parent—that’s the unconditional love.”
Anyway, Kidman is thankful for what she has.
Although Nicole regrets not having more children, she is grateful for what she got in life.
“[It’s] OK because I get to mother other children. I have six nieces and nephew and I’m godmother to 12,” she says. “I love mothering, I love kids: they’re quirky, funny and unfiltered. And then you get to see them grow and send them on their way.”
Kidman is also happy with her marriage to Urban, describing their love story as “an absolute miracle.”
“Two Aussies born in the same year, but living in different worlds and cities, how did that happen?” she says of Urban, whom she wed in 2006. “It was meant to be.”
What’s truly remarkable is that even after 17 years of marriage, Nicole and Keith continue to gaze at each other with the same sense of awe and enthusiasm as if they had just encountered one another. Their lasting love and capability to conquer obstacles highlight that they are indeed a perfect match.
