Aussie girl Nicole Kidman is a Nashville transplant — and now Tennessee has a special place in her heart (and her kids’ accents!).
“That country-music community is a very warm community,” she shares. “It’s very protective. Keith’s been a part of it for decades now. It’s his home, it’s our home.”
Kidman calls herself “lucky” to have found love with “a guy that lived in Nashville,” adding, “I was meant to go there. I’m very, very happy to live there.”
And the South has transformed her brood — both Sunday and Faith are “Nashvillians,” Kidman says.
“They have a southern drawl,” she reveals, admitting, though, that there’s a hint of their parents’ Down Under accents. “They’re hybrids.”
