Nicole Kidman has always been tall with a svelte figure so she became pregnant with her daughter Sunday Rose, she grew in more ways than one.
In the issue of Ladies Home Journal, Nicole talks about how pregnancy made her breasts "normal size," being in love and how her career is taking a backseat to family life.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
Nicole on breastfeeding: “They’re not very big, my boobs, so they just became normal size. I loved it! I felt very Woman. When you’ve had a slightly androgynous body your whole life, having breasts is a nice feeling.”
Nicole on being a private person: “I would never write a memoir. There are things that happen behind closed doors, and that’s where they belong. I’m not secretive. I’m protective.”
Nicole on being in love: “I love being in love. I believe in the power of love, the way it can heal. The more you keep choosing it—because there are times when you can choose to be angry at the person or to love him—the more it nourishes a family.”
Nicole on her career taking a backseat: “There are certain limitations to my career because I’m based here. And that’s cool. Keith has enormous ambitions, which I support. His tours and albums are much bigger than what I’m doing right now.”
Nicole on refusing to sing in front of her husband: Most mornings Urban plays the piano for her and Sunday. “I hum a little. When your husband’s a huge singer, the last thing you do is sing with him.”
Nicole on her outlook for the future: “Sunday’s third word was ‘wow,’ and I say that word a lot. I hope when I’m 80 I’ll still be saying it. I’ve been given extraordinary opportunities, with huge dreams fulfilled. I’m 42 and my eyes are still wide open.”
