Calling daughter Sunday Rose, 3 ½-months, a "beautiful surprise" Nicole Kidman says that while shooting the epic film Australia, getting pregnant was the last thing on her mind. "When you’re in the middle of a film, it’s not something…I mean, that wasn’t something I was planning," the 41-year-old actress reveals in a new interview with the Herald Sun. "[Sunday] is such a blessing and I hope the film is a blessing in the same way."

With Nicole for a mom and country singer Keith Urban for a dad, Sunday will no doubt become accustomed to travel from an early age. Fortunately, baby girl — whom Nicole describes as "easy and lovely" — has proven to be "pretty mobile" on the road.

That can-do attitude for traveling with baby was recently put to the test when Nicole introduced Sunday to London, where she had rehearsals for the upcoming musical Nine. Grateful for the chance to develop a "rapport" with her female castmates like actresses Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Dame Judi Dench and Marion Cotillard, Nicole admits that she’s "really nervous" to resume the singing and dancing that earned her an Oscar nomination for Moulin Rouge. "Because I’ve just had a baby, I’m behind the eight ball a bit — your body can’t do certain things," she explains. "I’m like, ‘Hang on, I can’t hip-hop." Fortunately, director Rob Marshall has been understanding and has even "adapted certain things" to make the set more baby-friendly.

In addition to Sunday, Nicole is mom to 15-year-old Isabella Jane and 13-year-old Connor Antony with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
