Lenny Kravitz and Nicole Kidman dated back in 2003, but until now neither has ever revealed how serious the romance got.

"It’s all in the family!" she joked.

The Oscar winner dated the retro rocker back in 2003, two years after she split from her ex-husband Tom Cruise —and two years before she met Keith Urban, 49, whom she married in 2006.

And, no hard feelings here. Kidman still thinks her old flame is pretty terrific. "I love Lenny; he's a great guy," she said after dropping her bombshell news.

Until now, neither Kidman nor Kravitz, 52, has ever acknowledged how serious their romance got, but in a 2007 interview with Vanity Fair, the actress revealed that she was once engaged to a mystery man in between Cruise and Urban, though she declined to name him.

"It just wasn’t right,” she told the magazine of her secret engagement. “I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”
