Nicole Kidman has revealed she would love her daughter Sunday Rose to follow in husband Keith Urban’s musical footsteps.
The Oscar-winning actress has sung in Moulin Rouge and dueted with Hugh Laurie and Robbie Williams, but told Simon Mayo on his Radio 2 Drivetime show that while she has no plans to duet with her husband, she would love her two-year-old daughter to sing.
Nicole said: “I’m very comfortable listening. I would love it if Sunday Rose would learn an instrument and sing a bit because I love having music in the house.
She added: “She certainly sits at the piano at the moment, that was her Christmas present, a pink piano. She sits down and thumps away and sings Jingle Bells.”
The 43-year-old actress lives in Nashville with her musician husband and feels she has had a country music education.
She said: “I feel like I’ve been educated in country music now. I understand where it comes from, understand the roots of it and my husband, it’s what he grew up on, he knows so much about country music, you know, not just Johnny Cash, but I’m talking an incredible array of music.
“I’ve been introduced to things far beyond the contemporary country music. And that’s interesting to me because country music is dark, painful, truthful and compelling. I mean wow. There’s some great, great songs out there and the lyrics are fabulous and it’s good. It’s good having a lot going on.”
Nicole revealed she has also embraced her inner cowgirl.
She said: “I have some western shirts, definitely have a few cowboy hats. Ha. I have cowboy boots – but I’ve had cowboy boots since I was 15.”
