Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman and her Australian singer, songwriter husband Keith Urban celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary on Thursday, June 25. To celebrate their milestone, they each posted sweet tributes to their marriage on Instagram.
Urban posted a playful photo of the two jumping hand-in-hand on a beach. “Happy Anniversary Baby!!!!! 14 years…. and i feel like your boyfriend in ALL the right ways!!!!” he said.
Kidman kept it simple with a black and white image of the two in an embrace, captioned, “Us ❤️ #HappyAnniversary“.
The pair first met at the 2005 G’Day USA gala. At the time, Kidman didn’t think that her now-husband liked her. In 2013, she told Ellen DeGeneres that she once told her husband “You didn’t love me at first sight, you didn’t notice me”, to which he replied, “Yes, I did but I just didn’t let on”.
It was a long four months after their first meeting when Urban finally called her. Thereafter, the pair began a low-key relationship, according to People. After spending time together in Nashville and then New York while Urban was on tour, the pair quickly fell in love.
Kidman told the Wall Street Journal that her husband stole her heart when we took her on a ride on his Harley Davidson through Woodstock, New York, after which they had a romantic picnic in the woods.
“I was a goner – I mean, c’mon,” she said. According to Southern Living, Kidman knew he was the one after just one month of dating.
In 2006, they tied the knot in a candlelit ceremony at Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel on St. Patrick’s Estate at Manly in Sydney, Australia. They honeymooned in French Polynesia, where they also spent time getting to know each other more deeply.
“I kind of like getting married and then getting to know each other; I know that it sounds incredibly strange, but to me, it’s a more natural process,” Kidman told Elle.
In an interview with CBS News, Urban said that marrying Kidman felt like the beginning of his life. “Meeting her and getting married wasn’t life-changing, it was life-beginning. It was literally, like, ‘OK, life starts,” he said.
The pair have two daughters together, Sunday and Faith, and Kidman also has two kids, Conner and Isabella, with her ex-husband Tom Cruise.
