It’s a girl for Nicole Kidman!
The actress gave birth to a daughter named Sunday Rose Kidman Urban Monday morning in Nashville, husband Keith Urban announced on his official Web site.
"Earlier this morning Nic gave birth to our beautiful baby girl, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban," Keith writes. "We want to thank everybody that has kept us in thier [sic] thoughts and prayers. We feel very blessed and grateful that we can share this joy with all of you today."
New dad promises, "More to follow."
Sunday is the first child for Nicole and Keith, and is her third overall. She has two children, Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13, whom she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
The baby, let alone pregnancy, was a long-time coming for the 41-year-old Aussie, who frequently made her maternal desires be known. Complicating matters was a miscarriage suffered early on during her marriage to Tom.
"From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies. And we lost a baby early on, so that was really very traumatic," Nicole told Vanity Fair last year. "I think I would be very sad if I wasn’t able to have a baby. Keith knows I want one, and he has been getting there slowly."
After months of speculation, Nicole and Keith, 40, who married in 2006, confirmed their pregnancy in January, and the Oscar winner could hardly contain her excitement about her growing family and growing body.
"I just want to have this child safely and happily, and then we will see…I’m so happy at the moment, I couldn’t ask for anything more really," she said. "Being pregnant, I’ll have bigger boobs. That’s one of the many good things I can think of that will come of it!"
