Two months after welcoming daughter Faith Margaret via a gestational carrier, Oscar nominated actress Nicole Kidman is opening up about the desperation she and husband Keith Urban faced before their second baby's birth.

The 43-year-old Kidman tells Australia's 60 Minutes that the couple, married since 2006, has gone through a "rollercoaster ride with fertility."

"Anyone who's been in the place of wanting another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying," the actress said in the interview that aired Sunday. "We were in a place of desperately wanting another child. I couldn't get pregnant."

Though Kidman and Urban, also 43, have yet to reveal the identity of their surrogate, the actress is overcome with emotion when speaking of the woman who carried their biological child.

"She was the most wonderful woman to do this for us," says Kidman, who described Faith's December 28 birth as "so deeply emotional and moving."

"I get emotional talking about it because I'm so grateful to [our surrogate]" Kidman reasons.

And as she celebrates her new little miracle, Kidman -- who has two adopted children with ex Tom Cruise and 2-year-old daughter Sunday Rose with Urban -- doesn't necessarily rule out having more kids.

"I never say never!" she tells 60 Minutes. "If you ask Keith, he'd be like 'no,' but my sister's got five kids. [Keith]'s like, 'you're not going to be like your sister, are you?' I'm at an age now where it's very hard to have a child when you're 43. We love what we have."
