In the midst of Hollywood's current baby boom, the whole world seems to be on baby bump patrol. But Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban were able to keep the fact that they were expecting a secret. Of course, there was no growing belly to blow their cover.
The couple’s second child together, Faith Margaret, was born via surrogate on Dec. 28. She weighed in at "a healthy 8 lbs., 9 oz," according to People.
Kidman and Urban had their first daughter Sunday Rose, 2, in 2008. Kidman also has two other children, Connor, 15, and Isabella, 18, from her marriage to Tom Cruise.
Kidman and Urban, both 43, announced their news on Jan. 17, three weeks after Faith was born at The Women’s Hospital at Centennial Medical center in Nashville. "We spent Christmas on tenterhooks and after Faith Margaret was born…(and then) we spent New Year’s on cloud nine," Kidman said through her spokesperson.
A friend of the new parents said, "They never gave up faith they’d have another child together. They feel blessed."
Kidman and Urban aren’t the first celebrity couple to use a gestational carrier. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Neil Patrick Harris and his partner, and Sir Elton John and his husband have all had children via surrogate mothers.
