Australian-born musician Keith Urban is a fan-favorite. The story behind the start of his relationship with his now-wife Nicole Kidman resembles a fairytale.
Kidman confessed during a 2007 interview with Vanity Fair that when she first met Urban in 2005 at a “G-Day LA” event which honors the work of Australians, she was secretly engaged to someone else. However, just three months after this serendipitous encounter, the two were engaged.
“There was an enormous attraction initially and we got engaged after three months and then we got married really quickly, but we didn’t really know each other,” the actress said, according to Metro. “We really only got to know each other after we were married.
“I think meeting at a certain age makes a difference. And I trust my gut instinct. From the first minute I met him, there was a feeling of, Ahhh OK, somehow I’ve met home. And he had the same feeling. That was all we had but that was the essence of what we worked from.”
The couple are parents to two beautiful daughters.
One of the people who played crucial role in what Urban became was his father Robert who passed away following a battle with prostate cancer.
As a tribute to his dad and in an attempt to raise awareness, Urban made an appearance at the It’s A Bloke Thing luncheon in Toowoomba in 2018. However, when he was spotted by the paparazzi at the Sidney airport and the images emerged, his fans were worried that the singer could be suffering from the disease.
He, however, was there to perform at the Prostate Cancer Awareness/Fundraiser.
Sadly, other family members, including Urban uncles’ had prostate cancer, and that’s why prostate cancer awareness is a cause particularly close to his heart.
Urban offered to perform for free, contributing to the lunchtime fundraising and helping it set a new record of $2,024,000.
This shows that Keith Urban isn’t just an incredibly talented musician and an awesome husband and father, but also that he’s a person with a heart of gold.
