Nic & Keith Se­cret life

Locals re­veal what the su­per­star cou­ple re­ally get up to in the city they call home

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

They’re two of the world’s big­gest stars but at home in Nashville, you could be for­given for think­ing Ni­cole Kid­man and Keith Ur­ban are just a reg­u­lar cou­ple.

Locals in the US coun­try mu­sic cap­i­tal tell Woman’s Day the su­per­stars and their two daugh­ters are noth­ing but friendly, and reg­u­larly spot­ted shop­ping and run­ning er­rands.

Keith and Ni­cole, both 50, of­ten visit their lo­cal Whole Foods Mar­ket, where the crooner stocks up on pre­made sand­wiches.

“Keith and Ni­cole are two of my favourite cus­tomers,” re­veals Evonne Cameron, 33, su­per­vi­sor at the store in Green Hills. “They come here a lot, of­ten on Sun­day once a month. They get gelato for the kids and Keith of­ten buys pre­made wraps. I once asked, ‘Are these for your tour bus?’ He said, ‘No, I eat them all at home.’

“Ni­cole sam­ples from our ready-made bar. We have a lot of salad items. She’ll fill a plate and nib­ble while walk­ing around.”

“Keith and Ni­cole are very loved-up – a lot of hand­hold­ing and sweet mo­ments. It’s nice to see them still so close af­ter be­ing mar­ried for such a long time.”

NO SPE­CIAL PERKS

Ni­cole is also a reg­u­lar at the Whole Body store, brows­ing for vi­ta­mins and skin prod­ucts.

“In Nashville, we let celebri­ties live their lives – no­body bothers them,” says as­sis­tant de­part­ment man­ager Jill Lopez. “Ni­cole comes to shop while Keith watches the kids. It warms my heart to see what a good dad he is.”

A staffer at Ni­cole’s gym – spin class is the Aussie star’s favourite – says she doesn’t de­mand any spe­cial treat­ment.

“It is sur­pris­ing to see her in per­son, but Ni­cole doesn’t put on any airs and graces. She’s just here to work up a sweat and doesn’t get any spe­cial perks.”

Ni­cole and Keith take Sun­day, nine, and Faith, seven, to see

their beloved Nashville Preda­tors ice hockey team as of­ten as they can, but also pri­ori­tise date nights and time out for them­selves.

Woman’s Day has learned the pair, whose 12th wed­ding an­niver­sary is later this month, love noth­ing more than hav­ing a cou­ple’s mas­sage at lux­u­ri­ous Es­cape Day Spa and Sa­lon.

“They’re def­i­nitely reg­u­lars here,” a staffer tells us. “Typ­i­cally we have peo­ple sent to Ni­cole’s house to do her hair and give her a fa­cial. They also come in for cou­ple’s mas­sages. They have the treat­ment and then go into a soak­ing tub to re­lax.

“We don’t make a big deal out of it – they are very down to earth,” the in­sider says. “They are two of those beau­ti­ful peo­ple. You see them at their scrub­bi­est and they still look bet­ter than me!”

‘It warms my heart to see what a good dad he is’

Locals say the pair are very health con­scious.
