Why Nicole Kidman kept surrogate baby secret

Monday January 31, 2011

Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman has spoken for the first time about her new baby daughter Faith Margaret.

The 43-year-old said that she and her husband Keith Urban decided to keep the new arrival secret to protect everyone involved in the surrogacy process.

"I wanted to be able to tell everybody because I was so excited about her," she said.

"[But] we just decided this was our thing together. It kind of just perpetuated itself.

"[And] it protects her and it protects everyone in the situation."

Nicole made the comments to an E! presenter on the red carpet at the SAG awards, where she was up for best actress for her role in Rabbit Hole.

She was pipped to the post by Black Swan star Natalie Portman, but was up on stage to present the best actor gong to Colin Firth.
