NICOLE Kidman was an emotional wreck when husband Keith Urban spoke his first words after throat surgery.
Country music star Keith had to stay silent for three weeks after having a polyp removed from his vocal chords, and Nicole — who has daughters Sunday Rose, three, and Faith Margaret, 16 months, with Keith — says the experience further strengthened their bond.
“Three weeks of no sound—no laughing, no coughing, no sneezing, nothing,” said Nicole.
“All of those things make you closer. It was sort of profound: to go without his voice, and then to finally hear his voice. What if he sounded different?
“I was there for his first words, and then we cried. How many people experience their husband’s first words? If that doesn’t bring you closer, you’re not breathing.
“He could write things down, and he would scribble away. You can still fight when someone can’t talk. When he disagreed with me, he would write, ‘This is unacceptable’.”
