Casually dressed in a denim jacket, Kidman ate chicken salad while laughing and talking with her friends. Observers tell PEOPLE that the new mom looked happy and well rested.
“She looked amazing,” noted one diner, “relaxed and glowing and surprisingly fresh-faced for a new mom. Motherhood really suits her well.”
Kidman, 41, and her husband, country singer Keith Urban, 40, welcomed their daughter on Monday at a Nashville hospital.
This is the first sighting of Kidman since giving birth. Her mother Janelle and sister Antonia flew into Nashville on Saturday for an extended vacation to help welcome the newest addition to the Kidman-Urban family. According to the new parents, however, help might not be necessary. “We feel immensely blessed and grateful to be given this beautiful baby girl,” the happy couple said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “She’s an absolute delight.”
