Keith Urban: ‘Nicole Kidman Won’t Let me Wallow’

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

KEITH Urban says wife Nicole Kidman won’t let him wallow when he’s feeling down in the dumps.

Speaking to the August issue of GQ Australia, Keith explains why Nicole doesn’t put up with his moping.

“Negativity and doubt are always creeping into my life and having to be kept at bay. Thankfully, Nic is great at calling me on it, and our marriage is at the stage where she doesn’t have to say anything,” Urban says.

“I hear myself prattling on with negative crap and her loaded silence shuts me up.

We try to keep a sense of privacy around us, while acknowledging that Nic and I both inhabit very public professions.

“Being a husband and a father is a horrendous responsibility, but it’s a beautiful opportunity as well.

“I’m always balancing the need to encourage the girls’ freedom and not impose on their own journey with that primal need of the father and husband to protect and guide them every step of the way.”
