Nicole Kidman’s New Baby Bliss Dampened By Pain Of Losing Her Two Oldest Kids

Thu, January 27, 2011 3:46pm EDT by 4 Comments

She just welcomed a new baby, Faith, via surrogate, but that won’t heal Nicole Kidman’s ongoing heartache over losing her adopted children, Isabella and Connor to her ex, Tom Cruise. They call Katie Holmes “Mom!”

As Nicole Kidman, 43, lives the dream of motherhood in her gorgeous mansion in Nashville with her husband Keith Urban, 43, and two young daughters, Sunday Rose, 2, and Faith Margaret, 1 month, she still lives every day with the pain of her past. Yes, Nicole is overjoyed with her new life, wonderful husband and beautiful baby girls, but she’s clearly devastated over her estranged relationship with her adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise, 48—Isabella, 18, and Connor, 16.

Nicole, why did you use a surrogate?

“It took me so long to get ­pregnant and have a baby, so I feel enormous gratitude,” Nicole says. “Sunday has healed an enormous amount in me. It’s a very private thing, but she just has.” When she was just 23-years-old, Nicole began what seemed to be an ideal life with Tom, until she realized that her dream of becoming a mom would be a long and hard battle. After struggling with infertility for years, Nicole and Tom decided to adopt two children: Isabella, in 1992, and Connor, in 1995—two children who no longer refer to her as “Mom.” After Nicole and Tom divorced in February 2001, when Bella was eight and Connor was six, they decided to share custody of their children. What made matters worse was that Nicole suffered a miscarriage weeks after they separated. Her heartbreak turned into utter misery.

Find out why Nicole and Keith picked the name Margaret

Bella and Connor lived with Nicole in New York for a long time, until 2004 when her career was at it’s peak. Then, the kids moved in with Tom in Los Angeles and that’s when everything changed. After Nicole wrapped up her film projects, she expected Bella and Connor to come home for the summer. Instead, they attended Scientology camp and began living in Tom’s $30 million mansion permanently. Then, they met his young girlfriend, and soon-to-be wife, Katie Holmes in 2005. They were invited to witness the birth of their stepsister, Suri, now 4, and after that they started calling Katie, 32, their “Mom.”

Suri Cruise is one spoiled little tot!

A source tells the DailyMail, “Nicole talks to the kids all the time, but doesn’t see a lot of them. She and Keith spend a lot of time in Nashville and ­Australia, and the kids don’t want to be away from their lives and LA home. Nicole understands — she lets it go.” Now Nicole has Sunday and Faith, who was born via a gestational carrier, to care for, but still remains hopeful that she will rekindle her relationship with Isabella and Connor. “I’d love them to live with us,” Nicole says of her older children, “but what can you do?”

One day I hope the truth about Nicole will come out. Everyone was so hard on Tom when in fact, he was a good guy and a gentleman. He could have told the world things such as, she was selfish, a fame seeker, didn’t want to ruin body with baby, cared more abour career than raising the two older kids,only claimed to be pregnant when he wanted a divorce, and only adopted to please Tom but she would have prefer blond hair blue eyed kids. Doesn’t care for being seen out and about with the older kids and never spent quality time with them when she was with Tom, she left the work to the Nannies and help. But Tom never said anything bad about her, she made some negative remarks about him such as, “now I can wear higher heel shoes” and other things. The fact of the matter is, no one every heard about Nicole until she got together with Tom. She would have been just another actress in B-movies. He helped her career a lot, and for that, she should be grateful. As for Tom jumping on Oprah’s sofa proclaiming his love prior to marrying Katie, what women would not want her man to stand on top of mount everest or something similar,and proudly tell the world they love them? However, I wish the all well.

Geraldine:
I can only describe your post as nonsense. No one, unless you are one of the parties involved, knows what happend with the Cruise Kidman marriage. Stop reading Tabloids. Moreover, how can you suggest that Nicole didnt want to adopt a black child and a dark haired white girl. It’s interesting that many Aussies that are friends of Kidman’s state that they learned about adopting kids of color from Nicole, including Hugh Jackman, someone who has a black and Hispanic child.

And to say that Kidman would be a B list actor without Tom is foolish. She was possibly B list with Tom, many women often become small for the sake of the ego of their spouse. But when she divorced her talent took over, and her superb acting skills were rewarded, unlike Tom. I really have no opinion about Cruise, but it’s so distubring to see how other women are so quick to bash each other, which is possibly the reason that sexism and inequity among genders is still prevelant in our society. Maybe it’s jealousy with other women, but the catty, meanspirited behavior is unbecoming. Let’s just agree that they are private people and no one knows what their story. OK
