Nicole Kidman Opens Up About Having Two Miscarriages During Marriage to Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman is looking back at an extremely difficult time in her life while she was married to Tom Cruise.

The 50-year-old Big Little Lies actress discussed having a miscarriage at the age of 23, and then again around the time Tom filed for divorce in 2001, in an interview with Tatler Magazine.

“There’s a huge, aching yearning. I know the yearning. And the loss! The loss of a miscarriage is not talked about enough. That’s massive grief to certain women,” she said during the interview.

“There’s an enormous amount of pain and an enormous amount of joy on the other side of it,” Nicole said of eventually becoming a mother.

“The flipside of going through so much yearning and pain to get there is the feeling of ‘Ahhhh!’ when you have the child.”

    Still acting like she did not adopt two children. Disgusting.

    She did mention this but JJ didn’t quote that.

    Those 2 adopted children don’t have anything to do with Nicole. That was their choice. They picked their cult oops I mean religion over their mom. But then again all religions are cults.

  • MsCarol

    Tom brainwashed those kids. I actually feel sorry for Nicole.

  • plez

    A mother does not abandon her children that have been brainwashed.

  • plez

    As adults they made such a decision. But to pretend like those kids were not around when she was going through those miscarriage is terrible and probably shows why the kids pick Scientology and their father instead of her.

  • MsCarol

    Are you serious? When they were young Tom had legal power over them and now that they are old enought is too late.
    Do you know anything about Tom Cruise or Scientology at all?
