In her Big Little Lies Emmy acceptance last night, Nicole Kidman gave a shout-out to her husband and two children with him.
“I have a huge artistic family who have supported me through all my ups and downs,” she said.
“I also am a mother and a wife. I have two little girls, Sunny and Faith, and my darling Keith, who I ask to help me pursue this artistic path. And they have to sacrifice so much for it.”
“So this is yours. I just want my two little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, ‘Every time my mumma didn’t put me to bed it’s because of this — [at least] I got something!’”
Twitter quickly pounced (as Twitter is often wont to do). Nicole, you may recall, is also mother to two adopted children, Conner and Isabella, with former hubby Tom Cruise. So… what’s with the snub?
Well, it could be a number of things. The most obvious answer is that her older kids have graduated high school and are living adult lives. In her speech, she spoke about Keith and her little girls as having sacrificed mommy while she was filming Big Little Lives. Isabella and Connor didn’t sacrifice anything, as they were out living their own lives.
The sadder truth is that her adult kids might not want anything to do with her and have possibly disowned her. Nicole has been labelled a suppressive person by the Church of Scientology, and as much as it hurts her, she’s respecting that.
