Nicole Kidman talks about her unfulfilled desire to have children
At the age of 54, Nicole Kidman had herself photographed in fishnet stockings and overknees for a cover shoot for the American edition of “Marie Claire”. The actress is just as open-hearted in the accompanying interview, in which she speaks honestly about the one thing that she regrets most in her life: “I would have loved to have 10 children”. But fate meant it differently for her.
Nicole suffered a miscarriage in her marriage to Tom Cruise
“I wish I had had more children, but I wasn’t given that choice,” explains the mother of four in the “Marie Claire” interview. With her ex-husband Tom Cruise, Nicole adopted a boy and a girl during their first marriage after suffering an ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. In 2007, Nicole spoke in “Tatler” magazine about the longing for her “lost” children and the emotional pain caused by a miscarriage: “From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies. And we lost early a baby, so that was really very traumatic. “
At first they adopted daughter Isabella (28), then son Connor (26). Nicole is said to have no more contact with either of the children who, like her adoptive father Tom Cruise, are Scientology supporters.

Nicole’s biological daughters were supposed to have siblings
In return, Nicole should be lucky enough to have biological children in her second marriage to country singer Keith Urban (53). Nicole has two daughters with him: Sunday Rose (13) and Faith (10). If fate had meant otherwise, the girls would have had a lot of siblings today. But she made her peace with the fact that things had turned out differently, because she was now allowed to mother other children: “I have six nieces and nephews and I am the godmother of 12 children. I love being a mother, I love children: they are unique, funny and unfiltered. And then you can see them grow up and send them on their way. ” (csp)
