On June 25, Keith Urban and his beautiful star wife, Nicole Kidman, celebrated a rarity in the celebrity scene. This gorgeous couple celebrated 10 years of marriage, and country star Urban posted a sweet tribute to the mother of his two daughters.
The picture that Keith posted to his social media account is also a rarity when it comes to a couple’s first meeting. The post included a picture that was taken only moments after he and Nicole were first introduced. This chance first encounter has now led to the two being one of the most adorable couples in the world of entertainment and they are clearly still as smitten with one another as they were the day they tied the know back in 2006.
Wonderwall relays the sweet note Urban added below the throwback snap of the two.
“Our very first photo together 2005, minutes after being introduced to each other. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABY. LOOOOOOOOVE YOU!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxx – KU.”
As the publication reminds, the picture was taken back in 2005 at an event called G’Day LA gala, which honors Australians in Los Angeles. It was fated that these two Aussies met and captured the encounter that would lead to such a loving bond.
Although this moment led to such love, Wonderwall points out the oddities within the snap that makes it hard to believe that such an adoring couple was the result following.
“While we think it’s super great that Keith sees the love in this photo — that ain’t what we see. What we spy is a seriously awkward moment! Nicole’s eyes look like they are throwing daggers at the camera and like she’s maybe thinking, ‘Why is this dude’s shirt unbuttoned so many buttons?!’ Conversely, Keith looks like he’s having a jolly good time!”
However,the awkwardness spied in the photo aside, Nicole and Keith hit it off and were married soon after. Yet Nicole visited the Ellen Degeneres Show back in 2013 and shared that following that chance first encounter, Keith took a whole four months to pick up the phone and call Nicole.
As E! relays, Keith was smitten from the get-go. The handsome country star confessed his initial attraction to the blonde beauty while on Oprah’s show.
“I thought, ‘Gosh, I’d really like to meet her,. I have never met her and we’re both from Australia and I’m sure we share some similar journey to get where we are. She walked into the green room where I was… she glided across the room, like floated. I don’t know how she did it. It was out of this world.”
While at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, Kidman shared with E! News how she and Urban feel about the 10 years of wedded bliss they experienced, and about how they intend to celebrate.
“We actually said we’re going to celebrate all year. We just feel incredibly lucky… It’s been the best ten years of our lives. We’re still very much in love and committed to each other.”
The 49-year-old actress relayed Keith’s sweet gestures that keep their romance alive, even when they are apart, while chatting with InStyle magazine.
“For every single night he’s away, he leaves me a love letter. Every single night of our relationship.”
Additionally, the Moulin Rouge star noted how her own parents, as well as Keith’s parents, are a huge inspiration to the star couple, seeing as both elder couples have been married for more than 50 years.
“We are really so inspired by our parents who both celebrated 50-year wedding anniversaries.”
Kidman and Urban share two adorable daughters together, 7-year old Sunday Rose and 5-year-old Margaret Faith. Kidman also has two adopted children from her previous marriage to actor Tom Cruise, Isabella and Connor.
