I just spent way too much time looking through photos of Nicole Kidman and her Lips of Doom. No, seriously, I wasn’t really trying to look at her lips, but they were like an alien tractor beam sucking me in. My real purpose for going through the Kidman photo archives was to see if we had any photos of her wearing this cross necklace mentioned in the following story. Unfortunately, we don’t have any photos of it. So… picture it in your brainsicles: a big, expensive-looking diamond and emerald cross pendant necklace. That’s what Keith Urban gave Nicole Kidman as a “push present” for baby Faith.
She didn’t give birth, but Nicole Kidman still got a “push present” from husband Keith Urban when their baby daughter Faith was born to a surrogate.
According to a friend, Keith designed an emerald-and-diamond cross that he gave Nicole soon after Faith was delivered.
“Keith worked with a jeweler, but he pretty much came up with the look,” a friend explained. “He spent around $120,000.”

My only criticism is that it shouldn’t be called a “push present”. Just in general, I find that term very patronizing, and in this particular case, inaccurate. That being said, I like the idea of a man giving his wife/baby-mama a significant piece of jewelry upon the birth of their child. I think it’s a lovely way to mark the occasion, and it’s a tradition that works. Just don’t call it a “push present”. Especially when another woman did the pushing, for the love of God.
