Nicole Kidman Revealed the Sweet Nickname She Has for Keith Urban

It's very Australian.

Is there a celebrity couple who’s more more head-over-heels than Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban? Our sources say no.

Kidman gushed over her husband of nearly 14 years in a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine, dubbing the Australian country star her “mellow muso” (muso is Aussie slang for musician, of course — not muesli, as previously thought by … some). “He’s pretty much the flip side of neurotic,” Kidman said of her husband.

Back in 2014, Kidman told InStyle that Urban calls her Hokulani — the Hawaiian name her parents gave her when she was born (on the island of Oahu). “My mum called me Hokulani. It means heavenly star," she explained. "That's something no one really knows. Well, Keith knows it. He calls me Hokulani sometimes."

When it comes to raising their daughters Sunday, 11, and Faith, 9, and balancing their respective careers, Kidman and Urban have a plan. “We have a system worked out to keep the family together,” Kidman told WSJ. “When Keith’s not touring, it’s much easier. He’ll be on tour next year, and then I just don’t work as much. Literally — it will become imbalanced, and we will change it. We don’t have the answers, but the one thing we do know is that we will not jeopardize us.”

And while Kidman and Urban value their family’s privacy, they aren’t about to let it stifle their daughters’ creativity. When asked how she’d react to her children wanting to pursue acting, she said, "I’d get out of their way.” Sunday and Faith already have voice roles in The Angry Birds Movie 2 and extra work in Big Little Lies to add to their resume.
