Megastar Nicole Kidman is our Woman Crush this week.
She gave birth to her first biological child, daughter Sunday Rose Urban, in 2008 at the age of 40.
By then, she was already a mom to Isabella and Connor, her children with ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
While she was 41, Moulin Rouge star showed optimism about having another baby. She was quoted as saying, “My grandmother had her last at 49. Every month, I’m like, ‘I hope I’m pregnant!'” She told Elle.
“I raised two kids when I was in my 20s, but that was a different thing. I was a kid and still so young mentally and emotionally — a totally different mom. There is something about mothering late in life. A lot of it is I want to stay alive for Sunday. There is plenty of deep fear and emotion. Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It’s a very private thing, but she just has.” She continued.
Faith Margaret, Kidman’s second daughter with husband Keith Urban, arrived via gestational surrogate in 2012.
Thanks, Nicole for empowering us to believe in older motherhood and especially in surrogacy.
