Nicole Kidman on Pregnancy, New Film ‘Paddington,’ and Why 2014 Was Such a Hard Year for Her [WATCH VIDEO]
Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman, who considers herself a very spontaneous person, said she’d jump at another chance at pregnancy, even at age of 47.
"I had my last one at 43," Nicole told Elle magazine, as reported by The Hype. "My grandmother had her last at 49. Every month, I'm like, 'I hope I'm pregnant!' …I wish I was!"
“The Hours” actress is already a mother of four: Isabella, 21, and Connor, 19, whom she adopted with former husband, Tom Cruise; plus Sunday Rose, 6, and Faith Margaret, 4, her own biological children with present spouse, crooner Keith Urban.
The reason for Kidman’s enthusiasm probably lies with her happy marriage. The tabloids had speculations when the Australian actress married her shorter country music singer husband in 2006 after dating him for only a month. It seems like their match made in heaven has Kidman longing for more children.
In fact, she chose one of her most recent projects with children on her mind. She voices the antagonist, Millicent in the Dec. 11, 2014 animated comedy, “Paddington,” about the adventures of a young bear living in the jungles of Peru who travels to London after his family is killed in an earthquake.
"I wanted to make a film for my kids. I haven't made a kid's film for a long time," Kidman told Yahoo! News. With “Paddington,” she’s bringing to life one of her many childhood dreams — playing the villain in a children’s movie. Apparently, she enjoyed “The Wizard of Oz” in her childhood and wanted to be the witch. Didn’t she also play a witch in “Practical Magic”?
Witch or not, no amount of magic has spared Kidman from calling 2014 a very hard year for her. It’s the year she lost her father, Antony, who passed away after a fall in Singapore in September of this year.
Still, Kidman remains grateful to her fans for their love and support following her father’s death. Who knows, 2015 may prove fruitful enough to gift her with another child to help heal her loss.
