Nicole Kidman is baby crazy!

Kidman, 47, just couldn’t help gushing over her interviewer’s baby bump in Elle‘s January issue, on newsstands Dec. 16.

“Oh my gosh, you are so lucky. Is this your first?” Kidman asked. Because of her “advanced maternal age” at 38 years old, the Elle reporter answered that it will likely be her only child.

“I had my last one at 43,” Kidman pointed out. “My grandmother had her last at 49. Every month, I’m like, ‘I hope I’m pregnant!’ ”

When Kidman’s publicist jumped in to call “off the record,” the actress wasn’t bothered: ” ‘Off the record?’ I don’t mind! Why not, right? I wish I was [pregnant]!”

“I’m spontaneous,” Kidman said of her whirlwind marriage to Keith Urban. “I jump in. I kind of like getting married and then getting to know each other; I know that it sounds incredibly strange, but to me, it’s a more natural process.”

Her strategy is clearly working: The couple got married in June 2006 after meeting in January 2005, and the stars now have two daughters together, Sunday Rose, 6, and Faith Margaret, 3.

On her carefully managed public persona, Kidman’s longtime friend Sheryl Crow told Elle that it’s a reaction to the “scrutiny she’s been subjected to” – Kidman isn’t an “ice queen,” she’s just not the type to covet publicity by “paddle-boarding in a G-string; she doesn’t set up situations where she’s playing to the paparazzi. She’s more old-school than that.”

Added Crow: “She’s not that kind of movie star.”
