Nicole Kidman Talks Marrying Keith Urban After 1 Month of Dating

Nicole Kidman Talks Marrying Keith Urban After 1 Month of Dating

Nicole Kidman steps out of her car while arriving at her play Photograph 51 on Sunday (October 11) in New York City.

The 48-year-old actress recently discussed marrying her husband Keith Urban one month after they began dating.

“We got married very quickly and we got to know each other when we were married,” Nicole said (via Us Weekly). “I wanted a partner and someone to share my life. I wanted more children. That’s happened for me. It’s not through just luck. I was open to it and willing to change and welcome the change I got to have a child when I was 41 and then we had a surrogate.”

    This is crazy. She’s either misquoted or something’s very wrong. According to my memory, they met in January of 2005 at a G’Day Australia affair, started dating that summer, became engaged the following spring and married in June of 2006. That time span certainly is a little longer than a month. They’re probably going through another rough patch, and she’s trying to make excuses for their getting married. I read that entire article and as usual, she goes on and on about her first marriage and how ‘devastated’ she was when she was tossed to the curb. You’d think she’d have a little pride and not keep bringing that up.

    The play is in London not New York, she did not marry Keith one month after dating, they met in Jan 2005, it took him 4 months to finally call her, in Nov 2005 both parent sets came to Keith’s for Thanksgiving, they were married in June of 2006 after about one year of dating, where do you get your info…maybe she was ready to marry him one month after they started dating….

    I agree with you, what happened to professional journalists? Seems the readers know more than they do. The other day she said she and Keith got to know each other after they were married, so what did they do in the year they dated and I’m lived together ? Give me a break, as you said something is up and she’s finding an excuse as to why things may not be right, that would be a lame excuse after 9 years+.On her first didn’t Tom accuse of cheating, that’s why she presented DNA proof that the miscarried baby was his? Who saves a placenta unless you fear trouble?

    What I love from her statement above is that she’s trying to tell single women out there don’t be too fussy when it comes to choosing men. Look at her, she’s Nicole freakin’ Kidman and she didn’t rely just on luck, she has to open herself for possibilities for it to happen in her life. So, this is a great advice for women out there who are still wondering why they’re single.

    How stupid to say that “they’re probably going through another rough patch, and she’s trying to make excuses for their getting married”!! What a boldface LIE! Keith flies to her immediately after his work commitments, and they spend ALL of their time together when not working. Where do you people come off making up such LIES about their private lives together? YOU have NO PROOF of anything, and you believe the stupid tabloids instead. Sure, they “spend time apart”– that’s the nature of their careers and they knew that when they married. It’s no different than ANY couple who spends time WORKING!

    As for Nicole “discussing” her previous marriage, she is answering the questions asked of her. She was asked about her dedication to her career after her divorce- and she was NOT talking about her “first marriage” at all! She displays total respect for all parts of her life– why should she have to deny what happened? Nicole is respectful of her past, as is Keith. Even Keith has said that HIS past history has brought him to where he is in life, and he wouldn’t change any of it. After all, it brought him together with Nicole! He’s called Nicole the absolute “love of my life, my soul-mate, my muse, the mother of my children, my wife, my lover”… and NONE of these stupid rumors or comments can change any of that!

    Tom accusing anybody of cheating is a laugh because he was married at the time he started seeing Nicole. Mimi Rogers was his first wife. But I do wish she would stop talking about Cruise and appreciate the great man she has. Sometimes I really don’t understand what she’s talking about. She said she stumbled into Keith……what the heck does that mean? Sonygu…..I agree with your statement….what did the year and half they dated mean to her?? She just makes no sense!

  • sonygu

    That’s true, his divorce from Mimi was in 1990..She didn’t stumble unto Keith, as I recall they were introduced by Geoffrey Rush, he did not however, call her until 4 months later, I remember Nicole telling Ellen that it was not love on first sight for Keith, none the less they ended up together, how can you not know someone after a year, most people I know have married at about a year….

    Why would the statement ‘they’re ‘probably’ going through a rough patch’ constitute a bold faced lie? As stated, it was my summation, not a fact. I still believe, it would be to her advantage to simply say ‘let’s not go there, that’s past history’ when asked by reporters about her ex.
    Please stop with the caps and exclamation points, they’re bad form.

  • Dizzy Miss Lizzy

    She didn’t get married after one month of dating…more like a year or so.

  • sonygu

    Good point, it is your summation not a stated fact. And yes she should just tell interviewers not to go to the past, however, in my opinion, I think that keeping that story line alive brings on a lot of headlines and attention, can’t say it did not really put her in the spotlight in the last few days.

  • 1MzLiz

    ‘stumbled into Keith’, that’s the question. In the entire article she only mentions Keith in the last paragraph. That’s in response to a direct question from the reporter. Hopefully, now that Keith’s tour is finally over, he’s in London while completing his new album. It helps everyone when they’re a family again.

  • 1MzLiz

    I remember reading a while back that Keith and Nicole would ask ‘is this beneficial to our marriage’, before making any decisions. I hope they still do; for two stars with people constantly demanding their time, it’s the only way.

  • Shelby

    I never understood him being attracted to her, but my husband says “what’s not to like? Tall, beautiful and rich!” She has always seemed cold to me, but I’m a woman. Men think differently. They seem to have a happy marriage so good for them.

  • Dee

    They dated well over a year before they were married. One article she said I knew I wanted to marry Keith after one month of dating him.

  • Dee

    But there aren’t too many Keith Urbans out there !!! Keith has it all, talent, looks and just an all around great guy.

  • Dee

    She is asked about it and she doesn’t go on and on about it. People should stop asking her about it, it was many, many years ago. She is married to a greater guy now.

  • Dee

    Love and agree with every word you said Joy. Perfect couple who love each other deeply.

  • Dee

    No Tom did not accuse her of cheating, where do you get all of these crazy stories ???

  • Dee

    In between Tom and Keith she was engaged to Lenny Kravitz.

  • 1MzLiz

    I made the mistake of reading the Daily Mail this morning. Now they’re stating that Nicole stopped being interested in her two oldest children only when she married Keith; a marriage to which she gave little thought. They’re implying that Keith caused the estrangement, and therefore, Nicole wasn’t invited to Bella’s wedding, causing her to be heartbroken. Bella’s wedding wasn’t the social event of the season by any means. Unfortunately, Nicole did say something that could be construed that she married in haste which is rather ridiculous considering the time frame.
    Sonygu, I hope you’re correct in saying Nicole’s remarks are strictly for publicity. Because unfortunately, they’re fueling all sorts of gossip. If Keith’s in London with her now, I hope they’re laughing at the absurdity of these articles. Let’s say I hope and pray they’re laughing.

  • 1MzLiz

    Two things, Dee. 1) Nicole, in an article, a few years back stated she had been engaged between her divorce from Cruise and marriage to Keith. Kravitz retaliated in another blurb that it wasn’t to him; he had never been engaged to Nicole.
    2) Yes, Tom did accuse her of cheating. Face it, he had to provide some reason for the divorce.

  • 1urbanfan27

    You are quite wrong about that…So many stories over the years…And they always change…

  • 1urbanfan27

    She isn’t his soul mate by any stretch of the imagination…

  • keithsmylove

    Keith stated on Australia’s Sunrise show just this year that he and Nicole were grateful they found each other and that he loved her more now than ever. I heard him say that very statement. Don’t really understand what a soulmate is, but they seem very committed to each other.

  • maggie novox

    When Nicole says they got to know each other after marriage, she means when Keith went to rehab. They had to dig deep and as Keith says “grief knits hearts in closer bonds more than joy ever can”. She means this is when they REALLY got to know each other.

  • 1urbanfan27

    Well he knows…And I know…And that’s all that matters…

  • 1urbanfan27

    She was dating Stephen Bing, when she met Keith at G’day LA…She supposedly passed Keith, her phone number…Her peeps later got in touch with his peeps…And it was set up…That was after she and Bing were over…Bing didn’t want to marry her…When Keith was in CA in December’04 doing Crossroads…She was with Bing in New York…

  • 1urbanfan27

    And he RARELY flies immediately…

  • Joy

    So now YOU know more about Nicole than she does, huh? It’s not enough that you claim to ‘know’ all about Keith? LOL!! Nicole herself has said many times that she was NOT dating nor engaged to anyone when she met Keith, and her “heart was open” to love and to Keith from the minute they met. Keith had just had his two year relationship with Niki Taylor end a few months earlier, and he was settling the transfer of his house into Niki’s name before his trips to Europe to tour in the spring of 2005. Info. about that house transfer was mentioned this past summer again by a realtor when Niki had another house up for sale– the one she bought from the sale of Keith’s house.

    “27/72″ reads the latest National Enquirer and Celebrity Dirty Laundry and claims that those are all the “truth,” and they make about as much sense as ’27/72′ does! Those were the sources of that garbage that “27″ mentioned, along with Keith proposing on a movie set in D.C. in October! Keith blew that out of the water when he told in a concert that they “got engaged in September of 2005,” and Nicole has always said that they were engaged “three months after we started dating.” I do believe that Keith and Nicole know the REAL FACTS of their lives, and they don’t need to “change the stories” since they aren’t the ones making up the garbage, like “27″ does!

    Keith also told on Oprah that they exchanged phone numbers when they met so they could “get to know each other,” so that’s nothing new. Keith also explained MANY times how they used the pseudonyms of “Hank” and “Evie” for emailing each other while Keith was touring in Europe. He’s talked openly about that, too– even naming his merchandise with the name of “Hank & Evie” during his Love, Pain tour! Keith gave a “shout-out to Hank and Evie out there” in Nov. of 2005 at the CMA Awards– when he won the Entertainer of the Year Award, too! Keith himself explained ALL of that in several LIVE interviews, so again, I’ll take HIS word for the REAL TRUTH about their lives.

    And for “27″ to continue to claim that everything that Keith says about his wife and his marriage is a lie is total PROOF that she is delusional, totally jealous of his marriage, and filled with anger! Keith himself claims to the WORLD that Nicole is his “amazing wife, best friend, soul mate, muse, lover, and mother of his children.” For a crazy woman who only ‘sees’ Keith from a distance once or twice a year to claim that SHE KNOWS Keith more than he knows himself is total EROTOMANIA!

    No, Tom never accused Nicole of “cheating”! Again, more tabloid rumors that people like “27″ love to enhance and spread, especially about Russell Crowe. A great deal of real proof has shown that Tom is the best friend and largest contributor of the “church” of Scientology. Cruise is a puppet of David Miscavige, and his disastrous three marriages are proof of that! After the divorce from Nicole, Tom would only say that “Nic knows what happened,” even when Oprah confronted him straight-on in an interview in his massive Telluride mountain house about details. I watched and recorded that show when Oprah questioned him excessively about why Nicole “was not allowed to share the custody of the children,” too, and Tom lied through that. He admitted that they had “shared custody,” but that he had the kids enrolled in “Scientology schools” with his sister ‘teaching’ them (only she was NOT a teacher at all!) Nicole was supposed to have the children over the summer when she was living in NYC, but Tom sent them “to camp,” and they never were allowed to live with Nicole again. Nicole was the better parent for NOT fighting the curse of that cult and dragging the kids through courts and destroying them completely. She spent lots of time with them, as pictures are everyone, but Tom Cruise has allowed Scientology to ruin MANY lives! Nicole made the best of a horrible situation when it came to the lives of her older children!

    Just prior to their split, Nicole had said in a live interview that she was not a Scientologist, and she felt that it would be a good idea for their kids to go to regular schools, or even Catholic schools like she had attended. THAT was a ‘no-no’ to David Miscavige, the “almighty head” of that cult, and the split was inevitable. If you’ve read anything about that whole cult and the mess they’ve made of many peoples’ lives, you’d understand what really happened. The movie that was released this past year, ‘Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief’, exposed it boldly, including what happened between Tom and Nicole! Even CNN has covered that cult, and labeled it as such. Leah Remini has a new book being released soon, too, since she’s also exposing David Miscavige for what he is. I’m sick to death of people bad-mouthing Nicole for how she “treated” her children when the whole mess was created by Tom Cruise. Kudos to Katie Holmes for learning from that nightmare, and luckily her attorney father helped HER to avoid the same disastrous life!

  • Joy

    You are totally correct Maggie! They both had lots of past baggage that they were able to resolve as they “built the foundation” of their marriage together. Keith has explained that beautifully through the years, and Keith KNOWS Keith better than any “27/72″ could ever dream to know him! Nicole has even said that “we saved each other” through Keith’s Rehab! So many people are so shallow with how they interpret what Nicole says, but she’s a very intelligent woman who speaks her mind well.

    Nicole attended MANY of the classes and sessions with Keith at the Betty Ford Center over those three months, as they were fully committed to Keith’s sobriety and making their marriage work. Again, lots of pictures prove that, too, and Keith and Nicole have talked about that fully in the past. They are totally committed to their marriage, as Keith is also committed to his sobriety. As Nicole has said, he “walks the walk and doesn’t just talk the talk” with his commitment to a healthy lifestyle, for his sake as well as for his family.

    For some delusional, angry stalker to pretend to ‘know’ Keith better than Nicole does and to make claims like she does about how she “knows what I know” is repulsive! And YES, when Keith is not working, he DOES fly immediately to his wife and family. He may spend the night after a late-night concert, but he flies to Nicole’s side as soon as a flight is available. Jealousy is UGLY, and so is this “1urbanfan27/ breathingmusic72″!

  • Dee

    What a bunch of bull s–t you spread. As earlier stated Jealousy is Ugly and so are you.

  • Dee

    I may be wrong but I do believe she was engaged to Lenny Kravitz and I don’t think he denied being engaged to her just wouldn’t comment. This was years after her divorce from Cruise. Kravitz song Lady which he wrote was suppose to be written for Nicole”

  • Dee

    OMG 27, hang it up. You are just laughable.

  • Dee

    I hope your cell is padded. No not really.

  • 1MzLiz

    Dee, what difference does it make? We’re all fans of Keith’s and Nicole’s. You’ve obviously read articles which I’ve missed, and I’ve read a few that you happened to have missed. And yes, Kravitz made that statement. I remember because I thought it was particularly mean-spirited. She had not, as I stated, said to whom she was engaged, and it would have been gentlemanly if he’d just let it go.

  • 1MzLiz

    OK, I’m going to end up being a SP before these posts are finished, Lenny didn’t write ‘Lady’, Lionel Richie did.

  • 1MzLiz

    OK, I’m going to end up being a SP before these posts are finished, Lenny didn’t write ‘Lady’, Lionel Richie did.

  • chelsea

    Again- he personally stated he does not know you. Period. How is that working for you? If you had any sort of a relationship, you certainly wouldn’t be hanging out here or any of your other joints.

  • Dee

    Different song. Go to You Tube and listen to song by Lenny called Lady. I read about engagement and song in New York paper, Prob NY Times years ago.

  • 1MzLiz

    I apologize. I’d never heard Kravitz do a version of ‘Lady’, just remembered Lionel’s hit, also from year’s back.

  • Dee

    I agree, it doesn’t make one bit of difference. Keith and Nicole the perfect couple.
