Nicole Kidman Reveals Why Daughter Sunday Can't Be Keith Urban's GRAMMY Date in Her Absence

By
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are always parents first and foremost.
Kidman stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday, where she talked about not being Urban's date to the GRAMMYs this Sunday. The 49-year-old actress will be attending the BAFTAs on the same night, where she's nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Lion. However, she hilariously revealed that their eldest daughter, Sunday, is more than happy to take her place!
"'I'll go with dad to the GRAMMYs!'" Kidman said of her daughter's reaction to the scheduling conflict.
... Though the Australian superstar isn't having it.
"She's eight and they use inappropriate language Ellen!" she explained about why Sunday isn't allowed to attend.
Last month, the couple talked to ET about their upcoming solo award shows when we caught up with the two at the SAG Awards. "We couldn't believe it. It's an amazing thing to be honored in both our fields in the same night at the same time," Kidman said. "I would so love to be there grooving to his tunes, you know?"
"Rarely does that happen where two evenings like that, that are both important to us, in the same night," Urban added, who's nominated for two GRAMMYs this year. "But we feel really grateful that we get to be honored in our fields, and we recognize that."
Kidman also talked about the first time she met Urban during her latest talk-show appearance, her now husband of 10 years. In June, Urban Instagrammed their very first photo together, which was taken just minutes after being introduced to one other in 2005.

Kidman says she was immediately interested in the country superstar. "We met that night and I remember thinking, I had such a crush on him and he wasn't interested in me," she recalled. "He didn't call me for four months."
Not surprisingly, DeGeneres and the audience were incredulous, leading Kidman to joke about never asking him why he waited so long to approach her.
"There's certain things -- and I think anyone in a marriage would agree with this -- you just don't ... just leave that," she said. "We're here now, and it's all good. We don't need to hash up all that stuff, right? So I should just shut my mouth."
"I think he was shy," she later mused.
Kidman also talked about her role in the highly anticipated HBO series Big Little Lies, opposite Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz. The handsome Alexander Skarsgard plays her husband in the miniseries -- which is based on the bestselling book by Liane Moriarty -- but Kidman hilariously remained unimpressed. After DeGeneres flashed a pic of Skarsgard in peak Tarzan physique, Kidman cracked, "He does not look like that anymore ... definitely not like that."
ET spoke to Kidman and Urban last month at the Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles, where Urban joked about their sex life. When ET asked if the couple would ever work together, he didn't hold back with his cheeky response.
"Us? We collab every night, of course!" he teased, as Kidman giggled by his side.
