Aussie girl Nicole Kidman is a Nashville transplant — and now Tennessee has a special place in her heart (and her kids’ accents!).

The star tells PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly‘s editorial director in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview that she feels “very, very happy to be a part of [the Nashville] community.”

Kidman lives in country music’s epicenter with husband Keith Urban and their daughters, Sunday, 8, and Faith, 5. The couple laid down roots there in 2007, just after saying “I do” the year before.

“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.”
