Congratulations Nicole and Keith!
Nicole's publicist Wendy Day has confirmed the Australian actress and her husband of 18 months, Keith Urban are expecting their first child!
Kidman was scheduled to begin shooting the Stephen Daldry-directed post World War II drama, The Reader, with Ralph Fiennes this month.
The NY Post reported Kidman, who has suffered miscarriages in the past, is "so concerned about the welfare of her unborn child" that she quit the film.
Kidman has two adopted children - Connor, 12, and Isabella, 14 - with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
