On Wednesday, our favorite Aussie country couple celebrates eight years of married bliss. Everybody: Awww!
Since they wed in Sydney in 2006, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have definitely experienced their shares of marital ups – like the arrivals of their daughters Sunday, 6 next month, and Faith, 3 – and downs, like Urban’s 2006 rehab stint for alcohol abuse.
Through it all, though, they’ve kept things cute with talks of family sing-alongs and TV nights in their jammies, and many a cuddly red carpet snap. So here, we’ve picked eight of the couple’s sweetest on-camera moments for your fawning pleasure. Happy anniversary, you two crazy kids!
After pulling up to the Sydney Chapel in a vintage Rolls-Royce, the couple spent the candlelit ceremony surrounded by family and friends, including Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman. The lovebirds met in 2005 at a gala dinner in Los Angeles honoring noted Australians, so it only made sense that they returned to their roots for the wedding. Kidman wore a dress by Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, and the celebration continued until midnight, when the bride and groom retired before departing for their honeymoon in French Polynesia the next morning.
Stronger than ever after Urban’s three-month stay in rehab, the couple nuzzled like newlyweds at the 2007 ARIA Music Awards at Sydney Olympic Park.
With their first daughter, Sunday Rose Kidman, on the way, Kidman and Urban glowed with happiness as they arrived at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas.
At this point in their marriage, the nose-nuzzle was now the couple’s signature. Here, smiles abound at a U.S. Open tennis match, though it looked like the Kidman-Urbans had eyes more for each other than they did the court.
Urban seemingly always has something sweet to whisper into Kidman’s ear. And at the 2010 Grammy Awards, the couple looked so in love, it’s as if they already knew how happy they would be at the end of the year with the arrival of their second daughter, Faith Margaret.
If it wasn’t obvious by now, the couple makes being in love look like a piece of cake, especially on the red carpet. Kidman, a mainstay at glitzy awards shows, blushed as her hubby stole a kiss at the 2011 Academy Awards in LA.
Always the supportive husband, Urban accompanied his wife to the premiere of her racy movie, The Paperboy, during the New York Film Festival.
Leaving Faith and Sunday at home for the night, the couple held each other close at HBO’s Golden Globe Awards afterparty.
Whether they’re celebrating Kidman’s accomplishments or making an appearance on Urban’s behalf (as seen here at the 2014 CMT Music Awards in Nashville), the Aussie dream team truly looks so pleased to be on each other’s arms every single time they’re caught on camera. Wishing them many more lovey-dovey red carpet appearances!
