Nicole Kidman Reveals How She Stays In Touch With Her and Tom Cruise's Kids, Isabella and Connor
By Antoinette Bueno
Nicole Kidman is all about the Internet and technology -- but only when it comes to her children.
In a new Q&A with DuJour, the 48-year-old actress says she used more modern forms of technology to stay in touch with all of her children -- including 22-year-old Isabella and 20-year-old Connor, her two kids with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
"I have four children, so to stay in touch with them is very important," Kidman says, also referring to her two daughters with Keith Urban, 7-year-old Sunday Rose and 4-year-old Faith Margaret. "I'm definitely engaged in it but I don't let it rule my life."
Kidman has been tight-lipped about her two eldest children in past interviews. When pressed by The Hollywood Reporter in 2012, she explained, "I've chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children who are Scientologists -- Connor and Isabella -- and I utterly respect their beliefs."
However, she did gush about them to Women's Weekly last May, praising the two for being "generous, kind and hardworking."
"And these are traits that I love to see in my children," she added.
While texting and emailing is fine for her children, apparently, the same can't be said when it comes to her affectionate relationship with Urban.
"My husband and I never text each other. We never do," she also reveals to the magazine. "Once in a blue moon, we’ll text. But mainly we say, 'I want to hear your voice.' That’s very unusual but we've been together for 10 years. We started like that and we haven't changed it. We don't email each other either. So it's about trying to keep it as intimate and personal as possible."
Last February, the Secret in Their Eyes star shared that the romantic country singer still writes her love letters. "For every single night he's away, he leaves me a love letter," she told InStyle about his busy touring schedule. "Every single night of our relationship."
When ET caught up with the American Idol judge in June, he had no reservations about constantly wooing the statuesque Australian actress. "I'm chasing her all the time," Urban admitted. "That's the way it should be."
