Keith Urban has revealed how his wife Nicole Kidman ended up with a broken ankle while in self-isolation, after a photo showing the actress in a moon boot sparked concerns with fans.

Nicole was attending husband Keith Urban’s drive-in concert for frontline healthcare workers in Tennessee, and was snapped by a fan sporting the mystery injury over the weekend.

Keith revealed during an interview with The Project on Tuesday, she had hurt herself five weeks ago while “running around their neighbourhood” in Nashville.

“[She] just didn't see a pothole and rolled her ankle and got a small break in her ankle,” he explained.

“So she's been relegated to the boot for the last handful of weeks and is still sort of getting through it, but her spirits have been amazing I've got to say,” Keith continued.

“She has been handling it way better than I would have.”

Concerned fans commented on the photo wondering what had happened to the 52-year-old, who has been isolating at home in Nashville during the coronavirus pandemic.

“What happened to Nicole’s foot?” one fan asked.

“Oh no what happened to Nicole?” wrote another.

“Did Nicole hurt her foot?” was a third comment, while a fourth added: “Kidman is certainly hiding something under the medical boot.”
