Nicole Kidman Talks About Her Children With Ex-Husband Tom Cruise, Connor and Isabella

Giving an update. Nicole Kidman rarely talks about her children with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, but she mentioned Isabella and Connor in a new interview.

“Bella lives just outside London,” the Big Little Lies star, 51, told Vanity Fair of the 26-year-old on Tuesday, April 23. “You know, she really feels more English. We lived there for Eyes Wide ShutMission Impossible, and The Portrait of a Lady. They both had English accents when they were little.”

As for her 24-year-old son, Kidman said that lives in Miami and is in music.

The Destroyer actress was married to Cruise, 56, from 1990 to 2001. She went on to marry Keith Urban in 2006, welcoming daughters Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8, in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

Kidman last spoke out about her adult children in November 2018. “I’m very private about [them],” she told Australia’s Who magazine at the time. “I have to protect those relationships. I know 150 percent that I would give up my life for my children because it’s what my purpose is. They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and, as a mother, it’s my job to love them.”

The actress added: “I am an example of that tolerance and that’s what I believe — that no matter what your child does, the child has love and the child has to know there is available love and I’m open here. I think that’s so important because if that is taken away from a child, to sever that in any child, in any relationship, in any family — I believe it’s wrong. So that’s our job as a parent, to always offer unconditional love.”
