Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban celebrate 13th wedding anniversary despite struggle with drugs, alcohol and insecurities
51-year-old Keith Urban shared a picture of himself with 52-year-old Nicole Kidman on Instagram on Tuesday to commemorate their 13th wedding anniversary
Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban—one of Hollywood's cutest couples—are celebrating 13 years of being together.
The couple has never been shy about showing off just how in love they are and have given the rest of the world some serious relationship goals!
The 51-year-old country singer shared a picture of himself with the 52-year-old actress on Instagram on Tuesday to commemorate their 13th wedding anniversary.
Urban captioned the picture, "Thirteen years of magic, music, romance, wild adventures, and the ongoing discovery of pure love. Happy Anniversary Babygirl. xxxx – KU."
Kidman also took to social media to share a picture and captioned it, "…love ❤️ Happy Anniversary Baby."
The couple had got married in June 2006 in Australia after they met at an event in early 2005. They share two daughters together: 10-year-old Sunday Rose and 8-year-old Faith Margaret.
Kidman also has a son and a daughter—26-year-old Isabella and 24-year-old Connor—from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise.
Urban recalled the moment they first met while on The Oprah Winfrey Show and said, "I plucked up the courage to go and do it, very nervously, trying to be all cool, and she was very pleasant."
"There was that moment of waiting for the next thing to be said, which I didn't know if I was bothering her or what was going on, so I just said, 'Nice to meet you,' and walked away. Then I thought, 'Was I supposed to say more?' I went back over and apologized and we just started talking. It just really clicked," Urban shared.
The couple seems to have a very harmonious relationship and, in January, Kidman spoke to PEOPLE about the moment she knew that Urban was "the one".
Kidman shared, "It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York. That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.'"
Urban has also been equally taken up by the Oscar-winning actress and said, "I could sum up Nic as a wife, mother and human being in three words: She’s all heart!"
The pair have also gone through difficult times especially when Urban struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol.
Just a few months into his marriage to Kidman in 2006, Kidman staged an intervention which led to Urban entering a rehab.
Even though it was his third visit to a rehab, he managed to stick it through and has been sober since.
In a 2016 interview with Rolling Stone, he said, "I caused the implosion of my fresh marriage. It survived, but it’s a miracle it did. I was spiritually awoken with her. I use the expression ‘I was born into her,’ and that’s how I feel. And for the first time in my life, I could shake off the shackles of addiction."
"When I was onstage, I felt good, but if I was not onstage, I was very, very insecure," the singer added.
All through their ups and downs, the pair have managed to stick together and have never lost their love for each other.
Kidman told fans how the couple have managed to keep their relationship alive over the years and shared, "Just love. Just love each other, lavish each other with love. Also, we just happen to like each other too. That works."
