Keith Urban - Keith Urban has musical children

Keith Urban hopes his daughters follow in his footsteps.

The 'American Idol' judge - who shares two daughters Sunday Rose, four, and Faith Margaret, two, with his actress wife Nicole Kidman - says their children have no excuse not to be musical but he is uncertain whether they will become professional recording artists.

He said: ''I don't know. It certainly won't be through lack of access to it all. We have instruments around the house and I sit at the piano and play with both the girls.

''Just this morning I had the music cranked up during breakfast and they would sort of eat a bit and then start dancing around the floor and then go back and eat a bit more and then dance a bit more. I just thought, 'What an awesome way to start the morning, having a little food and dancing.'''

The 45-year-old Australian singer also revealed that he likes their children to be surrounded by performers because he hopes it will inspire them in the future, and recently brought them to the set of 'American Idol'.

He said: ''They actually came down to the state yesterday for a little while. Nic and I love them being around that kind of environment, watching people sing, watching them perform and being around the music. It's ... being around that and being around the movie sets since they were born. They're certainly music fans. They haven't watched the show yet, but I have a feeling they will be this season.''

Keith revealed that his wife is a big fan of the reality singing competition.

He said: ''Sometimes we've watched the show, sat down and watched it. Particularly it was funny watching the audition rounds because they had happened so long ago. We would sit down to watch them and Nic would be wanting to know, 'Does he go through? Does she go through?'

''It was actually good to watch it like that because I'd gotten a bit of time away and getting to see them and hear them like that was great. I wouldn't say I take my work home with me, but if someone really stands out I certainly - Nic is always curious if I've seen somebody that stands out.''

'American Idol' airs exclusively on 5*, at 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
