Nicole Kidman reveals getting through depression after divorce from Tom Cruise
Melbourne: Nicole Kidman has opened up about her battle with depression after her marriage to Tom Cruise broke down.
But she says despite the dark period in her life, she has no regrets marrying Cruise.
"I got married really fast and really young," Kidman told WHO.
"But I don’t regret that because it got me [children] Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period. 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 told WHO magazine.
Kidman, who is now also mum to Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret with husband Keith Urban, says announcing she was pregnant in 2008 was one of the greatest surprises of her life.
"I had so much time thinking that wasn’t going to happen in my life and trying to understand that. When it did happen – and for it to be a surprise – that was great. I had tried and failed and failed and failed. Not to be too detailed, but I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments. I’ve done all the stuff you can possibly do to try get pregnant.
"Every woman who has been through all those ups and downs knows the depression that comes with it. So the way it just happened with Sunday was like, ‘What?’ The percentages were so low. It is the miracle in my life."
But she says that her other miracle was meeting Urban.
"We really, really love each other. We really like each other and respect each other, too. I never, ever take him or our love for granted and I always keep in my mind that my dream is to grow very old with him,” she added.
