Nicole Kidman on motherhood: Kids are 'quirky' and 'unfiltered'… She wants 10

The mother of four has Sunday Rose, 12, and Faith Margaret, 10, as well as adult children Bella, 28, and Connor, 26, who she adopted with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise.

Posing for a sensational photo shoot, Nicole, 54, told Marie Claire: “I wish I’d had more children, but I wasn’t given that choice. I would have loved 10. I love kids: they’re quirky, funny, unfiltered.”

On her career, she said: “None of it’s handed on a platter. Not for me, nor my husband [who] says, ‘every brick in this house is a gig’.”

She also called her union with country music star husband of 15 years Keith Urban, 53, “an absolute miracle”, adding: “Two Aussies born in the same year, but living in different worlds and cities, how did that happen? It was meant to be.”

Nicole is now starring in the series Nine Perfect Strangers on Amazon Prime.
