While she has starred in dozens of characters over the course of her career, there really isn’t a bigger role for Nicole Kidman’s children besides being their mother. However, there have been rumors of tensions between the actress and her children for years – especially when it comes to her adopted children with ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
Kidman and Cruz met on the set of their 1990 movie, Thunder days. Within six months of the film’s release, the couple married and began trying for children. At the age of 23, Kidman experienced an ectopic pregnancy, which occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the uterus. After the heartbreaking experience of losing her first child, Kidman and Cruz decide to adopt two children: a daughter, Isabella, and a son, Connor. The couple continued to raise their children together throughout their decade-long marriage, which eventually ended in 2001 after Kidman lost another child to a miscarriage.
While Kidman has since moved on with Keith Urban and welcomed two biological daughters with the musician, many still question her relationship with her adopted children today. For years, many have speculated that Kidman’s children with Cruise have been kept away from her due to their affiliation with the Church of Scientology, which their father famously supports. Kidman, for her part, is not a Scientologist. This makes them what is known as a “SP” or “oppressive person” by the church – a designation reserved for people with whom church members should avoid contact at all costs.
Actress and former Scientologist Lea Remini briefly touched on Kidman’s estranged relationship with her children in her 2016 book, Naughty: Survival in Hollywood and Scientology, revealing that Kidman’s daughter described her mother to her as a “f*cking SP” in 2006. When Remini asked her if she had seen or spoken to her mother recently, Isabella replied, “Not if I had a choice.” According to Remini’s account, this was over a decade ago – so could the relationship between Kidman’s children and their mother have improved over the years?
