Nicole Kidman's love for Keith Urban is timeless!

In an interview with CBS Mornings while promoting her new movie Becoming the Ricardos, the 54-year-old actress spoke about her and Urban's romance.

"I met him later in life and it's been the best thing that's ever happened to me," she told Gayle King about her relationship with the Grammy-winning country singer. "That man is the best thing that's ever happened to me."

Urban shared similar sentiments in December 2021 during an appearance on Living & Learning with Reba McEntire when asked what his "biggest achievement" has been in life.

"There's a lot of things. Marrying the right person, massive," Urban said, adding, "Marrying for the right reasons, getting sober 15 years ago, a big turning point in my life."

Three months prior, Kidman opened up about the moment she knew that her relationship with Urban was meant to be during a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show.

"He sat on the stoop of my New York apartment. I came out at 5 a.m. in the morning, and it was my birthday, and he had flowers," she recalled. "And that was it. I was a goner."
