The 'Grace of Monaco' actress, who was previously married to Tom Cruise until 2001, credits hers and Urban's happiness to meeting later in life.

"Keith always says, 'We're lucky we met late in life,'" she said. "The sadness of that is that we can't have six kids together, but the greatness of that is we've gone A-Z with all that other stuff, so now we're totally present for this."

While attending one of her beau's recent concert, Urban dedicated a song to Kidman as it was their wedding anniversary, saying into the microphone, "Eight years, baby girl. This song is for you. I love you so much." This very romantic gesture even made the 47 year-old actress's close friend's jealous, she told the mag, "I had two girlfriends sitting with me [at the concert] and they were like, 'Bitch!' I went, 'Hey! I've been to hell and back."
