Sunday is Nicole and Keith Urban‘s oldest daughter. The celebrity couple are also parents to nine-year-old Faith, while the Hollywood actress shares older children, Isabella and Connor, with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

Nicole’s sweet birthday tribute to Sunday follows shortly after she opened up about motherhood in lockdown during an interview with Pete Hammond for Deadline’s Behind the Lens series. The Others star said: “I’ve been doing a lot of mothering as well which is a great thing. I learn so much from it. You get to give a lot but I learn so much from them.”

Reflecting on her daughters, Nicole continued: “I have a little girl whose about to be 12 and I have a nine-year-old and that requires a particular form of mothering. And you need to be there 24/7 because right now you are also doing their schooling. So you are doing their schooling and they are home. And you are dealing with all of the other emotions.”

The couple’s daughters have also been having fun spending quality time with their parents. Keith spoke to Entertainment Tonight at the beginning of lockdown about their time in isolation and said that they were getting out in their backyard a lot, as well as playing music and playing card games.

“It’s early days, still, in a lot of ways, but it’s been a very vibrant house,” he explained. Nicole also shared a photo of herself reading an Italian book a few weeks ago, revealing that she’s currently learning the language.
