Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban: 'Blessed' by Faith

Updated

For Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, the role of faith in their lives has never been more clear than since the arrival of new daughter Faith Margaret on Dec. 28.

The couple, both 43, announced their big news on Jan. 17, three weeks after the little girl was born to a gestational carrier at The Women’s Hospital at Centennial Medical Center in their adopted hometown of Nashville.

Faith Margaret takes her middle name from Kidman’s grandmother and her first from what her parents say they relied upon to fulfill their dream of expanding their family. “They never gave up faith they’d have another child together,” says a friend of the couple. “They feel blessed.”
