Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban Baby

UPDATE ~ Nicole and Keith's baby girl is named after early 20th-century artist's muse Sunday Reed, People has confirmed. Her middle name, Rose, is a nod to Urban's late grandmother Rose. "I have read a bit about Sunday Reed and her husband John – she was a key mover and shaker in the arts around the beginning of the century," Kidman's father Antony told Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph. "The name Sunday struck me as being a nice name for a woman, so my wife and I mentioned it."The paper reports that in January, Kidman and Urban visited an exhibition by artist Sidney Nolan, who had a longtime relationship with Reed who became his muse. The exhibition featured a quote from Nolan that was scrawled across a wall: "When you are young you are given a good view of life, because of your closeness to birth."
