Nicole Kidman shows off 6-month-old Faith Margaret in Sydney

63273pcn_kidman20

Ooooooh! Believe it or not, this is the first time we (this site) has gotten really clear photos of Nicole Kidman’s baby girl Faith Margaret, so this is a special treat. Nicole and her two youngest girls, Faith (in her mom’s arms) and Sunday Rose (walking on her own two legs) touched down in Sydney Australia and promptly got pap’d coming out of the airport. Both little girls look wiped out (it was probably a crazy long flight), and Nicole seems kind of punch-drunk, making cute faces at the paparazzi and the people around the exit.

I’m trying to figure out how old Faith is now… Nicole and Keith said in their announcement back in January that Faith was born on December 28, which makes Faith… exactly six months old today. You know what I love about Nicole these days? I know I’ve said it before, but it deserves to be repeated: now that she’s a 40-something mom with two young children at home, she’s really loosening up. She just seems… less frigid, you know? She used to be an ice queen, which I appreciated for a time. But I like this Nicole too – she just looks so happy. She looks like she drinks a beer sometimes, and carried lint-covered binkies in her pockets. This Nicole is better.

In other Nicole news, she’s in talks to replace Sofia Vergara (!?!?) in a new film, The Paperboy:

The Paperboy is running into some delivery issues. The drama, being directed by Precious helmer Lee Daniels, was to have starred Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Tobey Maguire and Sofia Vergara, with production scheduled to begin later this summer. But Maguire dropped out of the project last week, throwing a wrench into the proceedings and causing the shoot to be pushed back. The delay then intruded on Vergara’s Modern Family shooting schedule, prompting her to drop out of Paperboy on Friday.

But the producers are acting quickly to buttress up the cast and are now in talks with Nicole Kidman to step into Vergara’s shoes. McConaughey and Efron are still in at this point.

Paperboy centers on a reporter and his brother who investigate the events surrounding a murder in order to exonerate a man on death row. Kidman, if her deal can be made, will play a woman with a dark side who writes letters to men on death row. She brings the case to the attention of the reporter, developing a relationship with him.

Kidman, repped by CAA and Media Talent Group, recently wrapped production on Hemingway and Gellhorn, HBO Films’ romancer in which she plays war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to Clive Owen’s Ernest Hemingway.

Um… that film sounds terrible, especially given the “talent” attached to it. Lee Daniels is a wonderful and underrated director, so why is he messing with this junk? This thing is Matthew McConaughey’s bread and butter, though, so I guess I should have expected it from him – that is, if he’s playing the reporter. If he’s playing the death-row inmate, that’s a different story. But what if Zac Efron is playing the death row inmate?!? Ugh. Nicole, don’t do it!

  7. someone says:

    Nicole looks great, and the kids are beautiful, I think Sunday looks so much like Nicole in that pic…could just be the hair..

  8. Lauren says:

    I am happy for Nicole. She has been thru hell and back with Tom Cruise. Adorable children and a sexy husband have brought her much happiness.

  9. Dorothy#1 says:

    She is beautiful! And I seriously love Zac Efron!!!! He is so hot, I just want to eat him up!!!!

  10. Jackson says:

    This matters to no one but me, but I said I loved the coat Nicole had on. I just now realized that knit collar was part of the coat. Not liking it so much now.

  11. Lisa Turtle says:

    The little girls are so cute, they look like sisters. They look like clones of their dad!

  12. khaveman says:

    I agree with Jackson — great coat. I think she looks very fulfilled and happy when she’s with her kids/husband. Good for her.

  13. RHONYC says:

    if that baby ain’t the 2nd coming of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt!

    she’s got the adorable Gerber baby cheeks and pout like Shi had at that age, only with red hair. remarkable!

    so happy for Nic.

    i hope she has a boy as well. :-)

  14. lucy2 says:

    Cute kids. Nicole does seem happier now. I can’t even imagine what sort of nonsense she was dealing with in her previous marriage.

  15. Boo says:

    VERY pretty baby! I’ve always liked Nicole, and seeing her so happy is great. I only hope she has found some sort of peace with her older kids, too. Sunday and Faith are ridiculously cute kids.

  16. L says:

    Ah cute baby cheeks!

    I also love both girls coats! So cute and girly, and yet totally approp for their ages. Adorable.

  17. original kate says:

    nicole seems happy since the keith/kids combo happened…maybe she’s just thrilled to be away from the tiny terror. she looks good, but the banana clip in her hair is so awful, i just had to comment on it. i hate those clips.

  18. Rio says:

    Aw, she’s got Mom’s eyes. Ginger babies are the best!

  19. Oi says:

    Thats the best Nichole has looked in a long time. And the kids are precious!

  20. Lou says:

    Okay, granted, her face is botoxed to the nth degree but I think she looks fantastic these days – young and very, very happy. And I love the red hair on her, it’s so flattering.

  21. Lou says:

    Rio, Ginger babies rock! (Okay, I had one myself so I’m a bit prejudiced, but they do rock.)

  22. TeeTee says:

    I don’t remember her pregnant…she has a 6 month old??

    did she adopt her?? wow, how did this slip pass me..so she was pregnant last yr, wowwww. I seriously knew nothing about it…I guess she stayed in seclusion.

  23. Nina says:

    TeeTee: She had the baby via surrogate.

  24. bluhare says:

    I was wanting to know what she did with the bottom half of her baby but then I saw a foot in the last photo so all is OK.

    Baby’s adorable. Nic, not so much.

  25. KateNonymous says:

    The girls are adorable, and Nicole looks so much younger when she can move her face! That hair color is terrific on her, too–much better than the blonde she held onto for so many years. She looks really happy, comfortable, and fresh.

  26. Lisa says:

    Nicole looks great. I guarantee you I did not look half that good when I got off my SFO-Sydney flight. Of course, I flew coach, but still, that is a LONG TRIP.

  27. Kim says:

    Shes a cutie. Now if mom would just stop criminally abusing botox the whole family might look good.

  28. sandy#1 says:

    those children are cute, Nicole seems to be really happy and content in the life she chose, i think she’s talented and enjoy watching her in life and on film.

  29. Isa says:

    Those are some cute kids! And Sunday is looking a LOT like Nicole!

  30. Jana says:

    I love Nicole. Moulin Rouge I’ve watched like five times. So talented, even if she’s picked a few hit or miss roles where she wasn’t at her best acting (Australia).

    She deserves happiness. I hope Keith doesn’t relapse.

  31. I Choose Me says:

    Blah, blah, blah. COAT PORN!

    Oh the baby’s cute too.

  32. Lucy says:

    Nicole looks so happy…now Katie has the sad, lonely, mrs cruise face…

  33. Ruffian9 says:

    Cute baby….Nicole open-mouthed in the first pic, not ONE line on her 40-something face…I call shenenigans. She’s still using.

  34. vicky says:

    I disagree: Nicole looks like a wax figure.

  35. pato says:

    I hate how she holds the baby, like trying to put it away from her body, with the first one she did the same.
    I don´t know why I can´t picture her as a good mom.

  36. pato says:

    sorry!! this happens because I think in my language and not English, I meant the baby not it! *shame on me*

  37. Trashaddict says:

    She does look much better since she had kids. But she has this odd, unprotective way of holding her babies that creeps me a little. I was always 2 arms around my babies until they were pretty big, and if it was 1 arm, my eyes were on that kid. She was the same way with her 1st.

  38. Claire says:

    I can’t figure her out. She seems way too nice and I get sucked in. Then I have heard too often that it really is not the case, she’s a total bitch. Maybe her husband has mellowed her out – although he has obviously hung out at the same plastic surgeon.

  39. Jag says:

    Don’t babies usually cuddle up to their moms? It looks like Faith is trying to get away from Nicole. Maybe it’s just me, but I get a very “disassociated” vibe from her with the kids. Sunday isn’t holding her hand, either; it’s Nicole grabbing her wrist. Maybe I’m just being picky today.

  40. foolery says:

    cute babie. but am I the only one who thinks she’s holding her like a bag of groceries?

  41. ZenB!tch says:

    What pretty girls – all 3 of them. I like whatever she did to her face. She looks flawless vs. pulled. She’s also gained weight, she looks the same size she was in her 20s. I’ll take what she’s having.

  42. ZenB!tch says:

    @Claire – what did her husband do? I don’t follow country at all so I rarely see him unless they attend an awards show together.

  43. JustMe says:

    @foolery:
    cute babie. but am I the only one who thinks she’s holding her like a bag of groceries?

    I totally agree! I have thought so from the first photo of her holding Sunday Rose and it is the same with little Faith. I have never seen a photograph where Nicole is holding her child like a normal person would. Her arms are never supporting the baby’s bottom. She seems to simply hang onto her girls by gripping them above the waist while the baby’s legs just dangle.
    It doesn’t look natural but rather like she has to hold them for pics and is just waiting to hand the baby off to a nanny before they stain her clothes. Stiff- just like her face!

  44. kibbles says:

    This is the best she’s looked in years! Naturally pretty, happy, and normal. Not all botoxed and unhappy next to Tom Cruise. Divorcing him and marrying Keith Urban was the best decision of her life.

  45. Nik says:

    I was on the same flight as her and can I say Nicole is GORGEOUS. I never thought so until I saw her in person. She was beside me as we went through Customs and she was very natural talking to the people around her. While they were waiting in line, little Sunday Rose was jumping, dancing and singing like any other normal happy little girl. Nicole was watching her and laughing like any pround mum. It was lovely to see.
