Nicole Kidman has opened up about being an older mother in a new interview.
The Australian actress, 49, teared up discussing her two daughters with husband Keith Urban, Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith Margaret, 5.
“It makes me sad, I would just like to be here long enough to have my children grow up and for me to see them thriving,” Kidman said on CBS Sunday Morning. “That’s all I ask. And that my husband and I are with each other. Simple! Simple requests.”
When asked by the interviewer why the idea of the kids getting older gets to her, Kidman replied: “Just wanting to be here. I’m an older mother, so, you know…”
“It’s that prayer of, ‘Gosh, let me be here.," she continued.
“Oh, please. Yeah. Please. Please. But, hey, what will be will be.”
