Los Angeles: Actress Nicole Kidman says she suffered depression after her first marriage with actor Tom Cruise broke.

The Oscar-winning actress, now married to country singer Keith Urban, spent months battling a severe bout of depression.

Kidman married Cruise in 1990 when she was just 23, and they adopted two children together before the relationship crumbled and ended in divorce in 2001.

"I got married really fast and really young. But I don`t regret that because it got me my children - Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period," quoted the 45-year-old as saying.

"Then when it didn`t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up," she said.

Her depression also stemmed from years of trying to have kids of her own, and when she finally became pregnant with her first biological child, daughter Sunday Rose, she found the experience uplifting.
