Australian actress Nicole Kidman gushed about her happy marriage to Keith Urban. The 49-year-old Academy Award winning star revealed how their relationship has been such a success.

The two first began dating in 2005, and married in June 2006. The couple are parents to two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.

She told People: "Just love. Just love each other, lavish each other with love. Also we just happen to like each other too. That works."

Previously, during an appearance on Channel Nine's The Today Show, Urban revealed he is upset with the break-up rumours. He said: "People make up the most insane crap, and we kind of just roll with it."

"It does [annoy me], I want to live our life together, and the fact we live somewhere where we're not being photographed all the time - it makes it possible for people to make up that stuff because you're not always there to defend it," he added.

"But then you get angry, 'Like why do I have to defend this?' The people who come and see us they don't read that stuff. It is gibberish," the multi-Grammy Award winner said.

In 2015, Kidman talked about their fairytale romance to Vogue Australia. She said: "It's unbelievable that we found each other and at that stage in our lives were able to connect in that way and be that open to what the future was going to be."

"But we really commit to each other and give to the relationship; our priority is to be together. I don't ever take it for granted."

She added: "What I have now - the life I have with Keith and with my whole family - it doesn't just tumble into your lap; it's from setting my sights on it and saying: 'I so don't want to be alone, I don't want to walk this alone,' and I found that."
