Keith Urban And Nicole Kidman Share How They Keep Their Love Alive
Cailyn Finkel 6/1/2017
After nearly 11 years of marriage, it's clear to see that Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are still madly in love with each other. Their body language, kind words while in public and big smiles all exude happiness and a deep connection!
In a day and age where half of all unions end in divorce, these two have managed to keep the flame alive. However, this doesn't go without a lot of hard work and communication....
Despite Hollywood's reputation for failed relationships and drama, Nicole and Keith have stayed true to themselves and cultivated a marriage that is stronger than most. Even with appearances, performances, filming and concerts, the pair still makes time for what's important in life.
In addition to the obvious tactics of keeping their love alive, Nicole recently revealed the little relationships secrets that she and Keith participate in.
It may seem odd in a digital age, but Keith and Nicole rarely text each other. Instead, they opt to talk over the phone. Nicole explained why they do this in an interview with DuJour.
"My husband and I never text each other. We never do. Once in a blue moon, we'll text. But mainly we say, 'I want to hear your voice.'
We don't email each other either. So it's about trying to keep it as intimate and personal as possible."
Being able to hear each other's voices throughout the day is much more meaningful to them. Doing so also cuts down on the likelihood of a miscommunication since text messages are hard to interpret!
They Love The Great Outdoors
Keeping with the theme of living an "old school" lifestyle, Keith and Nicole understand the importance of putting technology aside and going outdoors.
Instead of a lavish Hollywood birthday party for her 50th, Nicole told InStyle that she and her hubby had something much more low-key planned.
"Keith and I might go on a hike with the girls. Or just go to the beach, swim, and be together."
There's something about being outside with family that recharges the mind, body and soul.
Spending Time As A Family
Nowadays, family meals are hard to come by. Whether it's a work event, soccer game or recital - there's always something that gets in the way of eating together. But for Keith and Nicole, there are no excuses on the weekend.
Nicole told InStyle that the weekend is time to reconnect as a family.
"On weekends, we just hang-wake up, get the paper. We eat together as a family, breakfast and dinner always. We're very, very tight. It's how I was raised. It's what I know."
This type of scheduled family bonding shows their children that nothing is more important than spending quality time with the ones you love.
They're Always FaceTiming
When Nicole and Keith are separated due to work, FaceTiming becomes a must.
One excited concertgoer named Amanda told E! News how Keith brought Nicole on the stage with him the night of their 10th anniversary.
"The show ended and the lights went out and when he came back out for the encore, he was holding his phone out for the crowd to see and the camera was on his phone. Nicole was in the car with the kids!
The crowd went crazy when they actually realized who he was FaceTiming with."
The pair are obviously busy with their own schedules, but being able to see each other's faces makes things that much easier!
Get a sneak peek at their intimacy here - if only we could know the words Keith whispered into Nicole's ears that brought her to tears and brought on that sweet loving embrace that symbolizes their marriage so well! Watch her sweet reaction below:
