Actress Nicole Kidman, who went through the adoption process in the 1990s when she and then-husband Tom Cruise adopted son Connor and daughter Isabella, is now helping Isabella with the same process, In Touch has learned.

"Isabella has her heart set on giving a child a chance like she had," a source tells In Touch. "Nicole has been pivotal in the process, pouring her energy into supporting Isabella and Max [Parker, her husband]."

The actress, who once said "to stay in touch with [Isabella and Connor] is very important," paid for Isabella and Max to receive pre-adoption therapy and even sprung for a new five-bedroom house for the 25-year-old fashion designer and her IT consultant husband.

Nicole, 50, also is due to go to London (where the couple live) later this month to see them, the source tells In Touch: "She will help them finalize papers and oversee everything, as well as give as much emotional support as she can."
