Hollywood start Nicole Kidman is to finally know the joy of being pregnant and giving birth to her first biological child!

The overjoyed new mum-to-be and husband Keith Urban after undergoing numerous attempts of fertility treatment are now floating on cloud nine since hearing the news that they have so desperately longed for.

“Ever since the day they got married Nicole has been hoping for this day to come” revealed an overjoyed friend. Everybody has known how she has been aching to have a baby and it is all she has talked about for a long time.

Her publicist announced that since hearing the news the Oscar winning Australian actress has pulled out of her next film a post World War II drama ‘The Reader” that she was due to begin shooting in the next few weeks. The film is to be directed by Stephen Daldry who helmed the “The Hours” which won Nicole the Best Actress Oscar.

Nicole has two adopted children, Isabella and Connor from her marriage to Tom Cruise but sadly suffered a miscarriage during this time.

There has been talk for some weeks now of the possibility that Nicole was pregnant and this rumour was laid to rest when the elated couple broke the news to her family during the Christmas holidays in Australia.

Nicole Pulling out of Next Film

Wendy Day who is Ms Kidman’s publicist and a close friend told the Australian Associated Press that she had only learned this morning of the pregnancy after Nicole rang to tell me.  “For years I've seen speculation and for years it's never been right, so I didn't think it was right this time," And then she's just rung this morning. I personally didn't know, so I'm excited today, very excited” she said.

"I understand she's had to withdraw from the film and therefore she's had to give them the reason, and therefore she's now able to confirm that she's pregnant," said Day.

"I don't know how far pregnant she is, or when the baby's due. She just simply rang me and said, 'Wendy I always told you I would tell you first, and I'd confirm it and you could make the appropriate announcement'," said Day.

"So I guess that statement ends all the rumours and I guess the poor girl will be hounded by paparazzi and all that."

Nicole and Keith met in January 2005 and got married in Sydney on 26 June 2006, finally putting a halt on speculations that the romance would last after various break- ups.

A well deserved rest is now due for this Hollywood actress who has been extra busy over the past few years and who is now staring in the fantasy film “The Golden Compass” which is being shown in cinemas worldwide amid speculations of the movie hitting sales of over $300 million.

Nicole has reportedly said for the moment her marriage to country music start Keith Urban takes priority over her career.
