Nicole Kidman has broken her ankle while in lockdown in Nashville, Tennessee, her husband Keith Urban has confirmed.

Concerns were raised when the Big Little Lies actress was seen wearing a moon boot in a widely-circulated Instagram photo of unknown origin at Keith’s drive-in concert on Friday [15 May 2020].

The gig took place at Stardust Drive-In movie theatre 60 miles outside of Nashville

The following day, Keith told ET: ‘She broke her ankle, but she’s a trooper.’

He continued: ‘There she was last night among all of the folks, hobbling around with her mask on.’

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Nicole.

The 52-year-old is believed to be in quarantine with Keith and their kids Sunday Rose, 11, and Faith, nine – so we’re sure she’s being looked after.

The Oscar-winner, whose other hit movies include The Hours and Moulin Rouge!, is also mum to Isabella. 27, and Connor, 25, her adopted kids from her marriage to fellow actor Tom Cruise.

Keith and Nicole tied the knot in 2006.

In other recent Nic news, the star spoke out on World Health Day last month to pay tribute to heroic health workers around the world.

‘I am the daughter of a nurse,’ she explained, referring to her mum Janelle. ‘I’ve seen a nurse in action my whole life. I used to hang out at the hospital when I was a little girl.’

‘Thank you to all of you for your bravery, and your selflessness and what you are doing, particularly during this time is so important.’

Nicole was busy filming new movie The Prom alongside Meryl Streep when coronavirus caused production to pause. In fact, filming was only a few days from completion.


The film, which will be released on Netflix, is being helmed by Hollywood and American Crime Story director Ryan Murphy.

Nicole and Meryl previously appeared together in both Big Little Lies and The Hours.
