In reality, no one knows for sure how Keith Urban proposed to Nicole Kidman. Fans speculate that Keith proposed to Nicole on their trip to Woodstock, New York.
Keith and Nicole got married in June 2006, six months after they started dating. Although the couple had a rough start, they managed to work on their relationship and pull through.
Was There a Proposal?
We know for a fact that Keith Urban is not only a fantastic musician but also a hopeless romantic. After six months of dating Nicole, he decided to take her on a surprise trip to New York.
On Nicole’s 38 birthday, Keith showed up at her door early in the morning with flowers and a surprise trip to New York. Shortly after this trip, the couple decided to get married at a church in Northern Sydney.
Keith Urban and Nicole finally got married in June 2006, almost a year later after they first met. Nicole says that the time isn’t relevant because she knew she wanted to marry him as soon as she met him.
How Did They Meet?
The first time Nicole and Keith saw each other was at the 2005 G’Day USA gala. As Nicole explains it, she fell in love with Keith as soon as she saw him.
They then took a photo minutes after they met at the gala, their very first picture together. Although Nicole’s interest was obvious, she thought that Keith wasn’t interested in her.
But Keith was actually interested in Nicole and explained that he was being shy; he thought that Nicole could never be with a guy like him.
He states that he wasn’t in a healthy place in his life and he had to take care of things first before going after Nicole. Keith was lacking confidence and didn’t feel good, which is why he waited for months to call Nicole.
A close friend of Keith gave him Nicole’s phone number. Keith was adamant about not calling her at the beginning, but after four months he finally made the call.
Keith was nervous at first, thinking about what he would say when Nicole picked the phone. But after they started talking, the conversation went smooth and natural.
Not too long after they met, they started dating. Nicole claimed that at the moment they started dating, she knew Keith was the love of her life.
The couple decided to get married in 2006. The couple’s wedding had over 230 guests, including celebrities such as Russel Crowe, part of the Moulin Rouge cast, and even longtime friend, Naomi Watts.
But it wouldn’t take long until the married couple faced their first challenge.
Dealing with Drugs, Pregnancy & Surrogacy
Months after their wedding, Keith and Nicole had their first problem. He went to rehab due to his alcohol abuse after Nicole had an intervention with him.
This wasn’t the first time Keith went to rehab. Because of his addiction to cocaine and MDMA, Keith already had two rehabs behind him.
It wasn’t until Nicole came into his life that he decided to “Get it right this time,” as he once again went into rehab. Keith stayed three months of his first year married to Nicole in rehab.
Although times were harsh for the couple, they fought for their relationship. In a 2007 interview, Nicole explained how she and Keith were two lonely people that met at the right time.
In 2008, the couple welcomed their newborn daughter. Sunday Rose Kidman (also known as Sunny) is the couple’s firstborn daughter.
Sunday Rose is Nicole’s third child, as she adopted two kids with her first husband Tom Cruise. Nicole’s relationship with her two adopted kids is unsure; she rarely talks about them during her interviews.
But Nicole’s daughter wouldn’t be her only kid with Keith; they decided to have another baby. In 2011, the couple welcomed their newborn daughter Faith Margaret Kidman.
Although Faith is Nicole and Keith’s biological daughter, they chose a gestational carrier.
Nicole’s fertility issues forced the couple to look for other options; in the end, they decided to have their second kid via surrogacy. While she’s definitely happy with her two daughters, Nicole wishes to have an even bigger family.
Never-Ending Love? Yes, Please!
Nicole and Keith’s relationship is one to envy and the couple looks happier than ever. One of Nicole’s advice to have a happy relationship is to always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.
She even does it when they are at galas and awards as usually seen on her IG posts. We love their relationship and want to see more of it in the future.
