Nicole Kidman is opening up about one of the most painful moments in her life.
The “Big Little Lies” star is on the cover of the July issue of Tatler talking about a miscarriage she suffered over 25 years ago when she was married to Tom Cruise.
“I know the yearning. That yearning. It’s a huge, aching yearning. And the loss! The loss of a miscarriage is not talked about enough,” the 50-year-old actress said. “That’s massive grief to certain women.”
Kidman suffered a miscarriage in 1990 when she was 23.
The miscarriage led Kidman and Cruise to adopt their children Isabella and Connor in the years after.
“There’s an enormous amount of pain and an enormous amount of joy on the other side of it,” Kidman said of becoming a parent.
“The flipside of going through so much yearning and pain to get there is the feeling of ‘Ahhhh!’ when you have the child.”
Kidman had another miscarriage in 2001, around the time she and Cruise were divorcing.
The actress is currently married to country singer Keith Urban. They have two children together.
