In excerpts released from the October 2007 issue of Vanity Fair magazine, the cover of which she graces, actress Nicole Kidman, 40, confirms that she miscarried Tom Cruise’s baby — but the timeline is different than what many may suspect. According to Nicole — who adopted two children with her ex-husband, 14-year-old Isabella and 12-year-old Connor — the baby was conceived "early on" in the marriage; Nicole makes no mention of a miscarriage shortly before the couple separated in 2001, as has been widely speculated.
From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies. And we lost a baby early on, so that was really very traumatic. And that’s when it came that we would adopt Bella. There’s a complicated background to that, given that I never speak much about many things. One day maybe that story will be told.
Parenting a teenager and a pre-teen has been an adventure for the Australia-bred actress.
I called Tom and said, ‘Guess what? Bella wants blue hair.’ I go with my daughter to the hair salon to get it dyed blue, and I look at her and I think, My God, it’s cool.
Despite the excitement of Isabella and Connor, Nicole — now married to country singer Keith Urban — says she’s still "yearning" to have a baby. The couple, who wed last year, plan to take "a couple of years" to spend alone with each other before introducing a newborn into the mix, at Keith’s request.
I think I would be very sad if I wasn’t able to have a baby. Keith knows I want one, and he has been getting there slowly.
