Nicole Kidman: Keith Urban 'Literally Carried' Me After My Father's Death
Kidman’s 75-year-old father, Dr. Antony Kidman, died on Sept. 12 while visiting his other daughter and her family in Singapore.
The actress opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Thursday about dealing with her grief and how her husband has helped.
“To have my husband just step up that way it makes me cry. We all go through hard times in our lives, but to be literally carried by your partner, and physically, at times, because I was so devastated. I’ll do anything for that man.”
Kidman also said that she’s amazed at the love she has received and appreciates when people reach out to her. And she feels a special connection to those also grieving.
“I’ve realized we don’t talk about it enough in terms of our society,” Kidman said. “Because at some point in our lives everybody loses their parents and it’s awful.”
On a lighter note, the Oscar winner also told DeGeneres how she and husband Urban stay close even when travel keeps them physically apart: the couple write love letters, “every single day.”
