Sydney had been locked down then. No one could even go near the church where Australia’s most famous daughter, Nicole Kidmanshe married her singer Keith Urban. A party for the actress’s rediscovered smile. Fresh from the troubled divorce from Tom Cruise. Of those weddings, celebrated on a sunny southern winter day, we have seen very few images over the years. Until, to wish her lover a happy 16th anniversary, the diva did not post an unpublished photo of that special day. Here it is above. “I remember it like it was yesterday. Forever,” writes Nicole on Instagram.
Love at first sight in 2005, the wedding in 2006
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman met in 2005. At G’Day LA, a Hollywood event honoring Australians. There is even the photo “taken a few minutes after we met”, as he wrote by posting it on Instgaram. The wedding was celebrated the following year. And, within a couple of years, their two children were also born, Sunday Rose13 years old, and Faith Margaret11. Nicole also has two other children, isabella, 29 years old, and Connor, 27, adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise. And that they have chosen not to be part of her life.

When Keith Urban wasn’t calling Nicole Kidman
The couple is considered to be among the closest in Hollywood. “Shortly after meeting him I remember thinking: I have such a crush on him, but he’s not interested in me. I swear it’s true! He hasn’t called me for four months,” Kidman revealed to Ellen DeGeneres in 2017. The version given by the singer is a little different. “Someone had given me his number and I kept it in my pocket for a while. I kept looking at it thinking: if I call this number, she will answer. And I don’t know what to say.”
Nicole and Keith saved each other
Something to say found it. Since not a week goes by without at least one of the two posting some serenade or declaration of love for the other. In interviews she said that “Keith saved me” from the loneliness after her divorce from Tom Cruise. «He is a very strong, warm and kind man. I’m very lucky to have him in my life, because his arms are such a beautiful place to curl up. And this is a lonely world. So, for me, that was an amazing thing to find, especially later in my life.”
He does the same. Explaining that it was Nicole who pushed him to go back to rehab immediately after the wedding. To begin their life together sober and happy. “I wasn’t at a great time in my life when I met her. I was grappling with so many things, never in a million years would I have thought that someone like her would see anything in me… The fact that it happened is astounding.”
