There aren’t many people who haven’t seen at least one movie with superstar Nicole Kidman. Still, the majority of her private life is tucked away in a bubble of privacy, which the actress guards closely. This is why, when Nicole shared a picture with her mother, the internet went wild.
A Special Mother-Daughter Relationship
The Big Little Lies actress went online to celebrate her mother Janelle’s birthday with a heartwarming picture of the pair on Instagram. The photo has them both laughing mid-conversation, as they sat outside, probably sharing a joke. Nicole captioned the photo by wishing her mum a happy birthday and sharing that this particular picture “is so US.” Fans were ecstatic about the photo and were quick to congratulate Janelle on her special occasion as well.
Anyone who’s been following Nicole Kidman’s career and public appearances knows just how fond she is of her mother. Nicole grew up in Australia with her sister, Antonia, their mom, and dad Anthony Kidman. Tragically, Anthony suffered a heart attack and passed away in 2014, leaving the family devastated. A little after making her film debut in 1983, Nicole had to take a break from acting because her mum, Janelle, was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very advanced stage. After chemo and radiotherapy, her mother “is a survivor now. I want that to be heard,” said Nicole in an interview with ITN news.
Nicole Kidman Always Makes Time for Her Family
Despite leading a busy life, Nicole always makes time to see her mum and sister. To do that, she splits her time between Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. together with husband and country singer-songwriter Keith Urban. The pair has two daughters together, Sunday (11) and Faith (9). Nicole has two other children from her ex-husband Tom Cruise — Isabela (26) and Connor (24).
