Keith Urban Says He's Heading Home 'ASAP' from Grammys to Tend to Nicole Kidman, Who Has the Flu

"She's home with our girls tonight," the country star said of his wife's whereabouts at the 2020 Grammy Awards

Flu season doesn’t spare celebrities.

Keith Urban revealed during PeopleTV’s 2020 Grammy Awards red carpet pre-show on Sunday that his wife Nicole Kidman wasn’t by his side because she stayed home sick with the flu.

“My wife is home with the flu,” the country singer, 52, said. “A lot of that going around.”

While Urban came out for the awards show, where he presented the first award of the night, he assured Kidman was “in good hands” in his absence.

“She’s home with our girls tonight and I’m heading home ASAP,” said Urban, who shares daughters Faith, 9, and Sunday, 11, with the 52-year-old Big Little Lies star.
