Nicole Kidman: I don’t want my kids to grow up!

Nicole Kidman is consciously trying to slow things down and enjoy the time she has with her children.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - Nicole Kidman is over come with sadness when she realises how fast her children are growing up.

The Oscar winner adopted daughter Isabella and son Connor with her ex Tom Cruise and has Sunday Rose, seven, and Faith Margaret, four, who was born via surrogacy, with her husband Keith Urban.

While Isabella and Connor have long flown the nest, it’s now dawning on Nicole that her youngest two won’t be at home forever either.

“When you have kids, you realise how quickly they grow up and how fast time passes,” she sighed to “That often makes me sad. That’s why I very consciously try to slow things down; I savour my food, move slower.”

With a busy career like Nicole’s, there aren’t many moments for just sitting and relaxing. But when she does get some time, she uses it wisely.

“If I have just a minute, I’ll meditate. If I have an hour, I’ll play with my children. If I have a whole day, I’ll start with a long breakfast, my favourite meal of the day. Then I’ll read the paper and go for a swim. I love swimming,” she smiled.

While Nicole has started a little family with Keith, she never wants to become estranged from her older kids. In a recent interview with DuJour magazine, she explained they communicate via text.

"I have four children, so to stay in touch with them is very important," she assured the publication. "I'm definitely engaged in it (texting) but I don't let it rule my life."

She added that when it comes to Keith however, texting is out of the question.

"My husband and I never text each other. We never do. Once in a blue moon, we’ll text. But mainly we say, ‘I want to hear your voice,'" she continued. "That’s very unusual but we’ve been together for ten years. We started like that and we haven’t changed it. We don’t email each other either. So it’s about trying to keep it as intimate and personal as possible."
