Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman has spoken about her hopes of having another baby.

The 49-year-old, who has four children, revealed she hoped to conceive another child with husband Keith Urban this year, stating that children are the “joy of my life”.

“I still have the faintest hope that something may happen to me this year,” she told Event magazine.

“My grandmother gave birth to my mother at 49. I would be beyond happy and just welcome it with open arms.”

The Australian actress also opened up on the issues she had previously faced with her fertility. Her two eldest children, Isabella, 25, and Connor, 21, who she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise, were both adopted.

Her third child, Sunday Rose, eight, is the only child she has conceived naturally.

“You go through heartbreak again and again and then you start to tell yourself it might never happen,” the actress said. 

“I honestly never believed I would actually give birth to a child, then at 41 I became a mother.”

Kidman’s fourth child, Faith, now five, was then born via a surrogate after the couple “wanted another child so much that it hurt”.

The family now live together in Nashville.

“Give me that over a Hollywood party any day.”
