Dilemma for Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman is being urged to decide between her husband and her children, it seems.

The actress is facing a dilemma over whether to relocate to Australia permanently for the sake of husband Keith Urban, or stay in America and see more of her adopted kids, Isabella, 14, and Connor, 12, according to Grazia.

“Nicole is not keen on Keith’s Australia plans,” a friend told the magazine. “She has been through a lot with Keith going into rehab and wants him to keep getting better. But she wants to maintain a close relationship with her kids too.”

On a recent trip to Sydney, Keith he told reporters: “This year is the start of us spending more time here. It’s great we both have family here and are getting to the point where we have more ability to come back more often.”

Nicole’s two adopted children live with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, although they agreed joint custody when they divorced.

While the actress never converted to Scientology, the children have been brought up as strict adherents.

“It makes sense that Tom has Isabella and Connor living with him rather than the mother,” the friend said. “The kids are so deeply immersed in their Scientology studies that their schedules are jam-packed.”

Nicole is expected to remain in Sydney for up to eight months filming Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, while Keith is due to head back out on the road soon on his world tour.
