After her divorce from Tom Cruise (57), Nicole Kidman (52) lost contact with her adopted children. The main reason that they hardly speak to each other is that Isabella (26) and Connor (24) chose to follow their father and be ordained to the Church of Scientology. But now the actress says she loves her children “unconditionally”.
“A parent’s job is to offer unconditional love”
Nicole’s adopted children Isabella and Connor broke contact with their mother because they committed themselves to the Church of Scientology. Father Tom is a prominent figure in the exclusive religious community, where contact with veterans is not appreciated. Despite the vicissitudes Nicole still talks to feel “unconditional love” for her two eldest children, reports The Sun .
“Motherhood is a journey in itself,” Nicole explained to The Sun . “There are incredible peaks and troughs, whether you are an adoptive mother or the biological mother. What a child needs is love.” But the actress does not stop there. “They made the choice to live as Scientologists,” the 52-year-old continues. “A parent’s job is to offer unconditional love.”
The band is supposed to be so diluted that Nicole is not even welcome for her son Connor’s wedding. His wife is also a member of the Church of Scientology. There also seems to be minimal contact with daughter Isabella. Her life is also dominated by faith. Moreover, the father of both is the most prominent member of the Church. Nicole knew about this when she married Tom in 1990, but the marriage failed in 2001. The children then chose their father over their mother.
Although it hurts her that they are no longer in contact, Nicole has peace with it. “The only thing that really matters is that I am there for them when they need love and support,” says the actress. Meanwhile, the 52-year-old has found the love of her life in country singer Keith Urban, with whom she had daughters Sunday Rose (11) and Faith Margaret (8).
