Step­ping out in LA for the pre­miere of her up­com­ing movie Boy Erased, Ni­cole Kid­man was sim­ply glow­ing. But the ac­tress’ stun­ning se­quinned Markus Lupfer gown wasn’t the only thing that caught the at­ten­tion of on­look­ers as she walked the red car­pet along­side her co-stars.

The 51-year-old, who has pre­vi­ously opened up about want­ing more chil­dren, was seen ten­derly touch­ing her stom­ach as she posed for pho­tos, sug­gest­ing a baby is on its way.

“Ni­cole has made no se­cret of the fact that she wants more chil­dren with Keith and this time she’d love a lit­tle boy,” re­veals a source close to the Big Lit­tle Lies star.

She is more “de­ter­mined than ever” to make her baby dream come true, the source added. So much so that Ni­cole and

hus­band Keith Ur­ban are will­ing to do “what­ever it takes”.

“Ni­cole and Keith have been look­ing into op­tions to help have a baby. While Nic’s grand­mother had a baby late in life, Ni­cole knows it will be a strug­gle for her, so the cou­ple are talk­ing about sur­ro­gacy and adop­tion as well.”

The cou­ple are al­ready par­ents to daugh­ters Sun­day Rose and Faith Mar­garet, but Ni­cole would love to give Keith the son he has al­ways wanted.

“Now that her girls are get­ting older, Nic would love a new baby in the home and she knows Keith would love a lit­tle boy.”

A source told New Idea in July that the cou­ple were “brood­ier than ever”. “All they do is talk about hav­ing an­other baby – it’s in­sane!” said a friend of the cou­ple.

“They’ve both made no se­cret of their de­sire to have an­other bub – es­pe­cially Ni­cole – and those feel­ings are just get­ting stronger and stronger as time goes on.”

Ni­cole has even ad­mit­ted her­self that she is keen to get preg­nant this year. “I still have the faintest hope that some­thing may hap­pen to me this year,” she re­vealed to the Mail On Sun­day.

“Keith and I would love to have more ba­bies.

“My grand­mother gave birth to my mother at 49. I would be be­yond happy and just wel­come it with open arms.”

In­deed in the past, Ni­cole has openly ad­mit­ted how much she loves be­ing a mother.

“I think be­cause I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced mother­hood in so many dif­fer­ent ways,” she ad­mit­ted pre­vi­ously.

“I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced adop­tion, birthing a child and I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced sur­ro­gacy. I’m like, when it comes to it, I just wanna be a mama.”

Ni­cole, who has strug­gled with fer­til­ity in the past, had two mis­car­riages when she was mar­ried to Tom Cruise, so went on to adopt Is­abella, 25, and Con­nor, 23.

She had her first bi­o­log­i­cal child Sun­day Rose with Keith in 2008 and two years later had her sec­ond child Faith Mar­garet through a sur­ro­gate. But her love of her chil­dren can make her over­pro­tec­tive at times.

The ac­tress de­scribes her par­ent­ing style as “he­li­copter” and has el­e­ments that she “grap­ples with”.

“When my daugh­ters are play­ing on the monkey bars I try not to hover and say ‘be care­ful’,” she has said pre­vi­ously.

“I want them to find their own way, but I still have that bal­ance of know­ing I am there when they need me.”

“Some­times I’m too much and that’s when they go, ‘Please don’t burst into tears when I tell you this, Mum’.

“So, I try not to, be­cause I want them to tell me things,” she said.

With two hands on her tummy, Ni­cole was beam­ing at the pre­miere of Boy Erased.
