Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban: Reason for New Baby Daughter’s Name–Exclusive


Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have a new baby daughter.

Faith Margaret was born to a surrogate on December 28th at Nashville’s Centennial Women’s Hospital.

I can tell you this exclusively: according to a friend, they chose the name Faith “for what they needed to have during this process.” And Margaret: “was the name of Nicole’s grandmother, who had her last child at age 49. As an older mother, Nic wanted it to be¬† a tribute to her.”

But I am told the parents will not–absolutely not–be selling pictures or doing interviews about Faith Margaret. Unlike some recent pr stunts (hello John Travolta) the Urbans are staying private and classy.

The proud parents issued the following statement: “Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret. No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we
feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier.”

We’re pretty sure gestational carrier was a female human and not a kangaroo!

Kidman has two children from her marriage to Tom Cruise, Isabella and Conor. She and Urban, of course, are the parents of Sunday Rose, age 2.

So much for reports from a few weeks ago that Nicole had a “baby bump!”

Congratulations to this exceptionally nice, loving couple on rounding out their happy family.
