What's the Good Word, Mate?

Balance, bliss, calm, over the moon. Humbled, blessed overwhelmed.

All words used by Keith Urban in the month since the baby was born. Words are one thing, but how they are said and the way they are said is quite another. Since the baby has been here Keith looks anything but those words. Be it the red-eyed coffee run in Nashville or the entire interlude in Sydney, Keith just does not look very happy. I know all of you who believe in the fairytale are going to say that Keith is tired, just like any other new father. I call bull on that. He isn't like any new father. Keith Urban doesn't have to provide hour to hour, day to day care of the baby. They can afford a staff to attend to the baby’s needs and from the rumors they have a baby nurse and three nannies 24/7 to do just that. Why does he look so forlorn?

In my opinion, I think that he doesn't really want to be in Sydney; especially not hanging out on her movie set with Grandpa Kidman. Do you remember those initial reports that said Keith was staying in the States? I think he really wanted to be there recording, writing, and just hanging out while the wife is gone. Of course, he would probably be having fun, maybe even a little illicit fun. Of course he couldn't be seen doing anything like that, so off he goes on the jet that Nicole's one true love bought her, and swoops down to the homeland where his every move is documented, and where he can't seem to get any time alone. I am wondering if at some point this week Keith will slip away with the baby and present her to his parents. I do think they will see her, if they haven't already, but I seriously doubt Kidman will be there when that happens, and I think that in itself is what this marriage is all about.

This marriage is really just something for show. When it’s time they are seen out and about and when they don't need to be, they aren't together. I really think that in time they won’t be together very much at all. Careers will be calling and the baby will be split amongst the parents. Remember there were no pictures nor talk about the happy couple being together from November 27 until the big baby announcement in January? Of there were the manufactured stories about Christmas parties and New Years Eve boat rides, but no one has said they were there or said anything about either. There was just speculation that they were there. I think that is what this marriage is about; future separations and then photo ops where they have to look happy. Except someone gets a snap of the unguarded moment like at the CMAs when Keith looked pissed because she was dawdling or the Oscars when he stormed off. Keith really hasn't looked all that happy unless it’s his career or his awards. Guess that need for fame was more than you bargained for, wasn't it?

yep, ole gramps was on hand for another photo op

whatever she is carrying in that sling is FREAKING HUGE

they need to truly just release some pics, or give it up

Urban Myths, you forgot, "Awesome" and "Stoked"...Well doublewide, kidman simply looks ridiculous, and I don't just happen to mean this one instance of this photo of her potato sack...but every instance and every planted story , and every arranged photo op that we all here are sure she is manipulating in order to further her continued inclusion in the headlines on this press tour and side show. At this point she knows no shame in what she is willing to do to make sure she keeps getting those headlines, those daily Oz headlines... with the baby, and the dress up... and all for the sake of her next movie... but as is surely the case, the Aussie people are not as impressed as the Oz media are trying to make it out to be ... but again kidman knows no shame...

don't believe the lies said...

I don't think we've seen a nice, sincere smile on Keiths face in a long, long time. The only time he truly looks happy is when he's on stage. It's the only time when it's about him and his music so no wonder he's enjoying the hell out of it. He knows once he leaves that stage it's all about HER again.

He's got to get his once a year AA meeting in since Papa Kidman is probably his sponsor. Also, the 14 yr. old illegitimate child has to meet the thingy.

realitycheck said...

Whoever you are latest blogger, you need to keep up. Plenty was said about the the boat party apart from comments by Keith and Nicole.

There is no 14 yr old illegitimate child as some would like to believe.

And its sick to wish Keith would have some "illicit fun". I know you didn't state that outright but I can tell where your going with that "Keith really wanted to be in the US" bullcrap. An incorrect story gets printed and therefore it reveals Keith's innermost feelings? Please! Whatever gets you through the night I guess...

cactus said...

The latest photo's of Grandma Kidman walking with the potato sack around her body (with Antony and Keith on each side) are continuing to prove the game she is playing with the media. After flaunting her supposed preganncy across the world media, she continues to delay releasing a photo of the baby. Is it because the baby looks like Antonia? Is it because it looks like an alien (which would prove it is Nicole's) or is it because it is a doll wrapped up? Whatever the reason, stop pretending you wish the paps would leave you alone. You are playing the games you are famous for. Attention seeker.

I have to ask a silly question.

If NK has a baby in that sling, where's the baby bag? I know, she's the perfect mother and is breast feeding and KU is holding a little blanket BUT no where is a baby bag? Does this perfect child not Poop, Puke, or make a mess?

If that's the case, Sign me up! I need a kid like that

realitycheck said...

yingyang, if you look at those photos of the couple with Anthony you'll see Nicole is in full hair and makeup and most likely costume. It has been reported that NK has a nanny with her which would be a necessity for those times when she is working. They are probably taking a break and walking with Sunday. Most likely the diaper bag is with the nanny.

And for those that are questioning the sling it is not a New Native which carries the baby differently. Nicole is using a Serena and Lily Market Sling which is supposed to sit just above the hip.

notachance said...

The hair did look like it was in the trailer so RC is spot on as they say.

As for the sling wearing, I've seen them all over the place on people. Guess it depends on who makes it, where it's most comfortable and there is no wrong or right way folks. Call it a potato sack if you will, I just wish I'd had one when my daughter was a baby instead of one of those front pack things that neither baby or me liked.

Just love reading into snapshots in time and seeing a whole fiction novel emerge from the skeptics.

Well, that's very simple yingyang, it was surely "covertly" taken into the studio lot, after much careful planning, by the staff of nannies who actually feed, and change and care for the baby... kidman only had the relevent accessories needed for the photo op.

Tara said...

I would have loved to seen Kidman in her trailer with her check list and a ciggy hanging out of her mouth...
1. sling for baby
2. Father
3. blanket
4. lump that is baby or rubber baby depending on what the nurse says
5. Child care book
6.... as Nicole scratches her head...
and shouts into a phone
KEITH and he pulls up just in time- even forgetting his hat

Lisa said...

I'll bite...where are the snaps??

CJ said...

New pics at GG.

http://www.celebrity-gossip.net/celebrities/hollywood/nicole-kidman-gets-back-to-work-206084/

Did you notice in the 4th picture the hand next to the man is flipping off the camera? The sleeve looks like the coat Nic is wearing to me...

So nice to see Keith being productive, setting around on the movie set instead of writing or recording. Didn't he say earlier this year he was going to fly people to Oz to work on the next record? I guess nobody agreed to go...

maclen said...

yeah, after I noted how even JJ's commenters were complaining about late photo op posting, JJ and GG and People.com are now back to regular early story and photo op posting... seems the reason is the Oz press coverage has played out on this story already... checked google news and she's reduced to blurbs on sailing boats and some real estate stories. That now makes me wonder if kidman becoming old news in Oz already will cause her to panic and move up the baby magazine piece, and not wait til at least oct or nov to unveil the kid for PR of the release of the movie.

What is this spin / leak all about?

http://www.okmagazine.com/news/view/8402

"Sunday Rose Urban received some top secret visitors shortly after her July 7 birth — her adopted half-siblings Isabella and Connor Cruise!

OK! has exclusively learned that Nicole Kidman's oldest children, adopted as babies during her 10-year marriage to Tom Cruise, flew to Nashville, Tenn., to meet their baby sister late last month.

"Connor and Bella don't see that much of their mother," an insider tells OK!. "But everyone felt it was important for them to meet their new sister."

(Really? I thought she saw them all the time and just kept the visits private? And yet no specific dates or pictures are provided.)

"Meanwhile, in their native Sydney, Australia, Nicole, 41, and husband Keith Urban, 40, have been introducing Sunday to their family and friends, including Hugh Jackman, who visited Aug. 10.

"She lives in Nashville — part of her is in Australia. She is centered," Nicole's stylist Phillip Bloch tells OK!. "People think of her as cold, but she's not that way at all."

Yet again with the "Connor and Bella visited! Really! They did!". The hardest part for me to believe - someone would actually admit to being her stylist. He must never want to work again. Then again, maybe Nic paid him enough to speak favorably of her that he won't need to ever work again. Sorry Nic, he wasn't very convincing. I'm not buying what he's trying to sell - YOU.

maclen said...

HA! yes, cj...another "exclusive" about cruise's kids "visiting" weeks after the birth... first the leak to the fanclub... then a week later another online leak, and again over a month later? Why would OK! even rehash this completely unbelieved story from a month ago if it were not a patented leak from inept team kidman...I suppose ITK believe's if they keep leaking it and getting it posted online, someone will begin to believe it! As I just commented, the OZ hysteria is dead already on her grand return, this must be their first panicked move to keep her in the news headlines... recycling this old story.

doublewide said...

double HA!

the story is dead in the water unless she can produce some pics

CJ said...

doublewide, I think if there were pics they would have already been leaked in an attempt to authenticate the story. Heck, if she had old pics that might possibly have been even a tad convincing they probably would have been released weeks ago. She's trying so hard to convince us it's true. Maybe in Oct or Nov, when pr starts for Australia, she'll release a picture of Connor and Bella holding Sunday together. If she can get a photo in the next 2-3 months around her "international filming commitments" that is.

maclen said...

Well, I find it very interesting that all the stories coming out now are from JJ, GG and People.com... kidman's arranged photo op distributers...and the "RA RA" and "cheerleading" post's from the earlier gung ho Aussie press have seemed to have suddenly fallen off. I'm getting the feeling that after the ridiculous photos of kidman on set with pops, the orb and baby buried deep in a potato sack, the Aussie press has finally become wise to kidman's game... she is not going to allow a picture of the baby to get taken... well, of course not now...and probably not during the reshoots of this film in OZ...so they've clearly lost interest and are moving on to other stories. So dont be surprised if kidman ramps up the public outings with baby in tow to try and get back that initial interest and daily Aussie headlines....

CJ said...

What the effing ^%#$? This makes NO sense. Nic is in Oz filming reshoots. Then she's off to London to start filming Nine. I doubt Keith would bring Sunday back to TN to meet Connor & Bella without Nic. No way, if the kids were going anywhere to meet Sunday it would have to be Oz, not TN. Either the paper is crazy or Nic's media team - oh, right.

Nicole's kids meet Sunday... one month later

Nicole Kidman has taken the phrase never in a month of Sundays to new heights.

The actress's adopted children are to finally meet their new born baby sister Sunday Rose.

But the meeting comes a whole month after the birth of their sibling.

Connor, 13 and 15-year-old Isabella Cruise, who are Nicole and Tom Cruise's adopted kids, had only previously seen their new sister in photo's sent by Nicole via emails.
(She couldn't cc the Urbahn's?)

Now the teens have flown to Nashville Tennessee where Nicole lives with husband Keith Urban to meet their new sibling.
(To find an empty house with nobody there.)

Nicole even flew all the way to Australia to show off Sunday, who was born on a Monday, to her family before introducing her to her children.
(Wonder who will meet Sunday first, Connor & Bella or Keith's family.)

notachance said...

Let us all remember that media outlets DO NOT get stories accurate. They regularly misquote, mistate facts and in general do not do their homework before publishing articles, so to take even 90% of the stuff that is written or told as fact is just plain silly.


Like I said, taking a snapshot in time and writing a complete fiction novel out of it. None of us live with Keith & Nic, so we don't know what we don't know.

maclen said...

So, what's to be made of a second UK story about cruise's kids meeting or about to meet kidmans new baby in as many days? Well, it looks to me that kidman is working on phase two of the Sideshow and "UK" Baby press tour. And perhaps kidman is trying to work out... or in "negotiations" to get cruise to fly his kids to the UK, so she can then finally get her photo ops of his kids with her baby...and perhaps kidman wants to get the baby photo session for the future magazine spread taken care of in the UK. But since it's more than likely being that part of the reason cruise dumped kidman was because she cared more about her career than the kids, and things having obviously not changed at all with kidman today...I would doubt if that will happen. If it's true that kidman does, as she claims...and as cruise claims, that they share 50-50 custody, then the only logical reason that cruise kids would not in the end visit kidman and baby, it's because they in fact have no desire to, end of story...and to kidmans desire for that photo op...hence, no pictures so far, only planted stories.

Well, at least TC doesn't have a career to worry about these days.....
