Nicole Kidman Opens up About Infertility Struggle

Nicole Kidman has opened up to talking about new baby Faith, the child born to her and husband Keith Urban, on Dec. 28 with the help of a surrogate.

The birth was "so deeply emotional and moving," Kidman says in an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes. She utilized the help of a surrogate mother, who carried the child after fertility treatments were used to enable Kidman and Urban to be the biological parents of baby Faith. "She was the most wonderful woman to do this for us. We were in the place of desperately wanting another child and this opportunity arose for us. I couldn't get pregnant and we wanted another baby. I get emotional even talking about it because I'm so grateful to her."

Kidman candidly spoke about her difficulties getting pregnant, beginning with an ectopic pregnancy she suffered ealier in her life when married to Tom Cruise. "I've had a very, very roller coaster ride with fertility. It has never been easy for me."

Now, she proudly says, "I have two gorgeous adopted children (Bella, 18, and Connor, 16) and two gorgeous biological children (Sunday, 2, and baby Faith). I can't believe what's happened."

Infertility can be a difficult struggle for many women and couples, but through modern medical technology, the dream of having a biological family can be achieved through a variety of treatments. Talk to a specialist today to learn more.
