Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s intense love story and major tragedy months into marriage

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have been married for seventeen years, which by Hollywood measures, is an eternity.

Tying the knot in the St. Patrick’s Estate in the beachy Manly suburb of Sydney, Australia, in 2006, the happy couple probably didn’t realise at the time that they would go on to become one of the entertainment industry’s most cherished couples. And it is clear why the duo’s relationship has been idolised, as they have stood by each other through difficult times, including Nicole dropping everything to support the country singer as he checked into rehab just a few months after their marriage.

But what exactly led to Oscar winner Nicole’s unwavering support to her other half, and how have they managed to keep their bond so strong over the years? It all started in 2005 when Keith and Urban met at the G’Day USA gala. While Nicole was instantly smitten with the Days Go By singer and even exchanged numbers with him, it took him a while to feel the same way.

In a later interview with CBS News in 2016, Keith gushed: “Meeting her and getting married wasn’t life-changing, it was life-beginning.” A little over a year after getting together, the pair became engaged in May 2006 with the Moulin Rouge actress confirming the happy news to PEOPLE. The following month, they tied the knot in Nicole’s native Australia, with the actress’ children Isabella Jane and Connor Antony, whom she shares with ex Tom Cruise, as part of the ceremony. They enjoyed their honeymoon in French Polynesia.
