He splurged on a dream city home for his wife.
Keith Urban has reached dream husband status with his latest gesture to Nicole Kidman. He has splurged more than $50 million on a house in New York City for her just so that she can be in the thick of things while she chases a career on Broadway.

We could all do with a Keith Urban in our lives. The 50-year-old country music star has shown his love for his actress wife by spending a massive 52 million AUD (that's around 39 million USD) on a glamorous 6-storey townhouse in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
The property boasts 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, an oak staircase, a spacious kitchen and even an enclosed yard area. According to Woman's Day magazine, the house once belonged to Michael Jackson, so it has star quality written all over it.
Plus, it's just a couple of miles away from New York's theater district, which means Nicole can pursue her dream of being a Broadway star - not a feat that will be too difficult for her after winning the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actress, Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Theatre Icon Award, a WhatsOnStage Award and a Laurence Olivier Award nomination all for her role as Rosalind Franklin in the London West End show 'Photograph 51' back in 2015.
'Nicole is keen to do Broadway shows and get into making TV programs and New York is a much better place for them to be than Nashville', a source told Woman's Day.
The couple, who have been married since 2005, are also hopeful that the move will be a big hit with their two young daughters. 'It has some of the top schools in the country and they think their girls would really benefit from moving to the Big Apple now they're getting a bit older', another source added.
Of course, the only person who may suffer with the move is Keith Urban himself, whose country career is better honed in Tennessee. But that just goes to show how much he loves his wife, that he'd make such a potential sacrifice for her.
