Nicole Kidman Admits
to Battling Depression
After Divorce From Tom
Though actress Nicole Kidman is now happily married to country musician Keith Urban, the stunning redhead recently admitted to Who magazine that she spent months battling severe depression after her failed marriage to Tom Cruise.
“I got married really fast and really young. But I don’t regret that because it got me (my children) Bella and Connor, and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period,” Nicole reveals. “Then when it didn’t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression.”
The Oscar winner married Tom when she was only 23 and adopted her two first children with him. Nicole also admits that her depression was due in large part to a combination of factors, including years of infertility while she was married to Tom.
“I had tried and failed and failed and failed. Not to be too detailed, but I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments,” the star confessed. “I’ve done all the stuff you can possibly do to try get pregnant.”
When Nicole finally got pregnant with her first child, Sunday Rose, she called her pregnancy “the miracle” in her life.
The Hours actress may have had some bumps in the road, but she looks back and is glad things turned out the way they have.
“I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.”
