What did Nicole Kidman find to be an expected plus to giving birth, besides the baby? Bigger breasts.

“They’re not very big, my boobs, so they just became normal size. I loved it!” she tells the December/January issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. “I felt very Woman. When you’ve had a slightly androgynous body your whole life, having breasts is a nice feeling.”

Even more than that, Kidman, 42, jokes that her fuller bosom helped earn her a role in the upcoming musical Nine, starring Daniel Day-Lewis.

“[I had] big boobs because I was breast feeding – I was perfect for it,” she tells Entertainment Tonight Canada. “I wouldn’t get cast now.”

Not that she was champing at the bit to become a working mom again after baby Sunday Rose was born. But she says, she couldn’t resist the chance to work with Day-Lewis, director Rob Marshall and the rest of the star-studded cast.

“I was not looking to go back to work. I went back to work because this was … the perfect kind of scenario,” she tells ET Canada of Nine. “Part of me was nervous about going back to work … but they said I could bring my baby to the set, and Rob didn’t seem to find that a problem at all, so then I was like ‘Uh, this is heaven.’ ”
