Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman opened up in an interview about her family life, including the fact that she and husband Keith Urban filmed Nicole giving birth.
 
The couple, who married in 2006, had their first daughter Sunday Rose in 2008. Though Nicole has two adopted children with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, Sunday Rose was the first biological child for the couple, and they wanted preserve the memory.
 
They filmed Sunday Rose’s birth, and according to Nicole, often watch it back to hear their daughter’s first cry.
 
“Giving birth is just whoa! What I remember the most is the cry. When the baby is born the cry penetrates on such a deep level and Keith says that too. He goes, 'What about that cry!'”
 
“And we actually did record our birth. So we've heard it back. And every time it jolts me back into the moment.”

The couple have another daughter, Faith Margaret, who was born in 2010 to a surrogate.
 
Nicole admits family has taken it’s toll on her career, but that she doesn’t regret any sacrifices.
 
“There's only a certain amount you can do once you have a children and a family. They say your art gets affected when you have a family, but I would much rather have a family.” She said.
 
Nicole puts her happy marriage down to having met later in life, when they both had enough life experiences and heartbreak to appreciate what they have together.
