Keith Urban Has Yet to Pen a Song for Sunday

02/27/2010 at 08:00 PM ET


He has sung songs about love and heartbreak, living life and finding happiness, but country crooner Keith Urban has kept one little lady out of his lyrics: daughter Sunday Rose, 19 months.

“Sunday hasn’t appeared in a literal way in a song just yet,” he tells The Boot.

Still, while it is impossible to pinpoint a song written specifically for his baby girl, Keith admits fatherhood in general has served as an inspiration for his music. “Certainly becoming a father deepens everything in my life, and that’s apparent in the songs,” the first-time dad says.

Although his wife Nicole Kidman has made it very clear that the couple’s daughter is a little “Keithette,” Keith is quick to point out that Sunday is “a great mix of the two of us.” However, according to him, seeing both of themselves in their toddler is no big surprise.

“Nic and I are very similar in a lot of ways anyway,” Keith notes. “She has this incredible determination and focus. That was inevitable that she’d get that!”

And while she may be taking after her parents’ personalities, Sunday is quickly becoming a southern belle! With he and Nicole both natives of Australia, but having settled in Nashville, Tennessee, Keith laughs,

“I always joke that when she starts talking she’s going to say, ‘G’day, y’all!'”

Sunday is a stunner just like Mom and Dad. So nice to see a photo of the three of them together.

I’m assuming he means “talking in full sentences” because she should be talking by 19 months. My girls were all really early talkers so chances are I’m just misreading. Sunday is a cutie pie though, looks alot like Daddy!

Mary-Helen, I have known perfectly fine toddlers who weren’t really talking comprihensibly until after they hit two (one was actually almost three when he started talking at all, ten years later he is still not a man of many words). As long as there has been determined that there is no underlying problem, like a hearing or speach impediment, then they will start talking sooner or later. My niece went from one word sentences to three-four wourd sentences practically over night when she was seven months, my nephew went from not saying more than a handful of words on his second birthday to talking up a storm 3 months later. It all depends on the child

@MiB as I said in my previous post, my girls were all early talkers, so I’m going by my own experiences. I didn’t say it was a bad thing, just seemed surprising IMO. Either way, she’s a sweetheart!
