Nicole says that she and husband Keith Urban attempt to get away together, but wind up missing the kids too much.
“I rented this beautiful house on the beach. I thought, ‘We’ll go and swim in the ocean and just get lost in each other.’ So we go down, just us, and I’m like, ‘We really should bring the kids.’ And then the kids come down and the whole dynamic changes. Another time, we got one night, and then we were both in tears. It was ridiculous. But time is so precious and I love the sound of them and the feel of them. I just don’t want to miss anything, and I don’t want them to go ‘Where’s my mom?’ So I’m working through that.”
On getting engaged so quickly (after 3 months of dating): “part of my spontaneousness, I guess” she laughs.
Nicole explains her approach to work: “I don’t really make decisions,, I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don’t get the chance.”
