OFFSTAGE: Nicole Kidman Opens Up About Faith Margaret

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

You can see Keith Urban letting his wife Nicole Kidman shine. He was there by her side at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday night (Jan. 30). But when it came time for her red carpet interview, he stands off to the side to let Kidman talk babies with E! network correspondent Giuliana Rancic. “He kind of either comes up here or he doesn’t,” she says of Urban’s decision to sit this interview out. Then she goes on to tell Rancic all about their new baby girl, Faith Margaret, and where she got that lovely name. “It’s that Southern double name,” Kidman says, explaining the “Faith” part came about because “we needed to have that through the whole pregnancy actually.” And Margaret because that is Kidman’s grandmother’s name. “She had her last baby at 49. So, she’s my inspiration,” Kidman said. As for keeping the pregnancy a secret, Kidman admitted that that was hard to do. “I wanted to be able to tell everybody because I was so excited about her. We just decided that this was our thing together,” she said. “It kind of just perpetuated itself. ’Cause it protects her, and it protects everyone in the situation.” Now that Kidman and Urban talking about Faith Margaret, I hope pictures of the new baby are next.
