Nicole Kidman's relationship with her adoptive children — Connor, 29, and Isabella, 31 — has been strained since her 2001 divorce from Tom Cruise.

It's been reported their estrangement is largely due to the fact that the kids remained Scientologists, while the Big Little Lies actress chose to leave the Church of Scientology.

Connor Cruise is 29 years old.

On Saturday, April 27, Kidman took the stage to accept the AFI Life Achievement Award in Los Angeles. Although it is unclear if there was any further contact, Bella did "like" some of her famous mother's social media posts regarding the upscale event.

According to a source, the gesture "made it clear Bella still has affection for her." Aside from the Instagram interactions, the 31-year-old has also chosen not to drop "Kidman" from her surname.

"I’m very private about all that," she continued. "I have to protect all those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is."

Kidman added that even her bustling acting career and winning prestigious awards is made better by her life with her husband and kids. "It’s very much about the family, whether it be my mother, my husband, my kids. There’s something about it where you go, ‘Oh look, I earned this for the family.' That makes it fun," she gushed. "That gives it meaning and gives it a joy."
