Entertainment behind the scenes
“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.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban peaked the curiosity of their fans when the celebrity couple named their daughter Sunday Rose following her birth on Monday. 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.
“I have read a bit about Sunday Reed and her husband John — she was a key mover and shaker in the arts around the beginning of the century,” Antony Kidman, told The Daily Telegraph of Sydney. “The name Sunday struck me as being a nice name for a woman, so my wife and I mentioned it.”
