Nicole Kidman has played many roles throughout her life, but at the end of the day, the most important role she’ll ever take on is being a mother. Kidman is a mother of four and shares two children, Sunday Rose and Fatih Margaret, with country superstar Keith Urban.

The “God Whispered Your Name” singer can’t help but gush over the kind of mother Kidman is and says they’re children are very lucky to have her in their lives.

“She’s an extraordinary mum, she really, really is,” Urban says. “Those girls are very, very lucky, and I feel very lucky that the children I should have in this world happen to be with Nic. I don’t know anything about raising kids and Nic does, and that comes in extremely, um, it’s really made for an experience I wouldn’t have had without that. Her patience, her recognizing them as people and not just little kids is really extraordinary. Her attention to honoring their feelings and listening to them right from day one – really being attentive to that is not how I was raised at all, so it’s really beautiful to see.”

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have been married since June 25, 2006.
