Kidman, Urban “in complete awe” over Sunday Rose

“Can’t stop staring at her in complete awe. Feeling incredibly blessed to have been given this precious little angel. Can’t wait for you to meet her!” Kidman wrote in the email that Smith published in her column.

Smith added that she hears Kidman and Urban won’t be selling photos of their nearly three-week-old daughter.

What’s up with Sunday Rose? Kidman’s dad knows

There was no explanation so it fell to Kidman’s father to explain the name – and it turns out the infant is named after Sunday Reed, an Australian patron of the arts with a tumultuous life story.
