Nicole Kidman gave birth Monday to a baby girl named Sunday.
In a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press, Paul Freundlich, a publicist for Keith Urban, said: “Nicole and Keith Urban are delighted to announce that Nicole Kidman gave birth to a baby girl on Monday morning, July 7, 2008, in the United States. Sunday Rose Kidman Urban weighed 6 pounds, 7 1/2 ounces. Husband Keith was by Nicole’s side and mother and baby are very well.”
Urban posted a message on his Web Site that said: “Earlier this morning Nic gave birth to our beautiful baby girl, Sunday Rose Kidman Urban. We want to thank everybody that has kept us in their thoughts and prayers. We feel very blessed and grateful that we can share this joy with all of you today.”
The baby is the first for Kidman and Urban. She has two children, Isabella and Connor, from her marriage to Tom Cruise. Kidman recently told Vanity Fair that she had a miscarriage early on in her relationship with Cruise, leading them to adopt.
Kidman, 41, won an Oscar for her role in the 2002 film “The Hours.”
During a concert Saturday in Nashville, Urban, a singer and guitarist raised in Australia, said, “I’m going to dedicate a song to my very, very, very, very, very pregnant wife” before singing his hit, “Better Half.”
Urban, 40, won a Grammy in 2006 for best male country vocal.
