Nicole Kidman rarely speaks about her children, Connor and Isabella Cruise with ex-husband Tom Cruise. The actress has been respectful of their privacy over the years. However, in a new interview with Vanity Fair, she gets candid about family and mentions her grown children.
The Big Little Lies star got candid about family, including giving an update on how Connor and Isabella are doing these days.
“Bella lives just outside London. You know, she really feels more English. We lived there for Eyes Wide Shut, Mission Impossible, and The Portrait of a Lady. They both had English accents when they were little,” Kidman revealed about her 26-year-old daughter.
She did not leave out her only son, Connor either. The mother of four also shared what he has been up to lately. The 24-year-old lives in Miami, where he is focused on pursuing a career in music. Connor is also reportedly engaged to an Italian model, and they are set to wed this summer.
Kidman rarely speaks about her grown children and is never spotted out with them publicly. Both Connor and Isabella have embraced Scientology, which Kidman admitted last year she supports because it is her adult children’s choice. Cruise primarily raised their son and daughter after the couple’s nasty divorce in 2001.
The 51-year-old is more vocal about her family life with Keith Urban and their two daughters, Sunday, age 10 and Faith, age 8. Although she and Keith are all about supporting each other at public events, they do attempt to shield their girls from the limelight.
Over the year’s rumors have ran ramped regarding the state of Kidman’s relationship with Connor and Isabella. She finally addressed those rumors last year.
“I’m very private about them. I have to protect those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is. They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions,” Kidman revealed to Australia’s Who magazine.
Nicole Kidman is a mama bear when it comes to her all of her children. She believes in protecting them but also thinks the number one rule of parenting is to give a child unconditional love. Providing that kind of love includes supporting her adult children’s choices, even if the actress does not agree with them.
