The day began with an early a.m. trip to one of their favorite spots: a Starbucks in Franklin, Tenn. After pulling up in their black Bentley, the couple – dressed in workout gear and baseball caps – strolled inside hand-in-hand and lingered over drinks and a scone.
The twosome then had lunch that afternoon at a local Whole Foods with Urban’s songwriter pal Monty Powell and his wife.
By then, Kidman was wearing a flower-print, yellow cotton minidress, and Urban had changed into a blue button-down shirt and jeans.
These days, the expectant parents – whose baby is due “soon,” according to Urban – have been doing more than hitting their usual haunts together: They’ve been taking Lamaze lessons. During a June 24 interview with Nashville’s WSIX-FM, Urban initially denied he was in the birthing class, but a surprise phone call revealed otherwise.
“Hi, this is Keith’s wife!” Kidman said. “Actually, Keith has been doing Lamaze lessons, he is selling himself short! He doesn’t know the name [of the classes] but he has been very good at it!”
Urban (who previously admitted he was learning a new vocabulary for fatherhood) thanked his wife for coming to his defense. “I knew there was breathing involved!” he said.
When Kidman added that she was on her way to the station but was stuck in traffic, radio host Gerry House asked her to stop at a nearby shop and pick him up a salad for lunch. Twenty minutes later, she arrived with a bag in hand.
“Here you go, Gerry – one Woodmont Salad,” she said.
House thanked her profusely, but confessed, “I have no intention of eating this. Are you kidding? Lunch delivered by Nicole Kidman? I’m having it bronzed!”
