  • Nicole Kidman reveals: 'First year of marriage is the hardest'

    Nicole Kidman has revealed that the first year of marriage to her country singer husband, Keith Urban, has been the hardest.

    In a candid interview for Marie Claire magazine the A-list star explained how her husband’s admission to the Betty Ford Center in the USA for intensive treatment for alcohol abuse, was extremely tough during their first year together as husband and wife.

    ‘They say the first year of marriage is the hardest. Please, God!’ said Kidman, adding: ‘He’s the most important person in my life, and I am for him, and that’s where we’re at.’

    Despite their hectic schedules, touring and filming, the pair have vowed to never spend more than 12 days apart. And this Christmas they plan to hibernate out of the limelight at their new farmhouse in Tennessee.

    Endless speculation over whether the 40-year-old actress is expecting their first baby together has continued throughout the year, but Kidman jokes in the interview: ‘I’d call you if I was pregnant. We could do a satellite link.’
