Nicole Kidman - Stay at Home Mom?

Filed under: Celeb Parents

Nicole KidmanNicole Kidman isn't shy about how much she loves being a mom to Sunday Rose. But the Australia star has fallen so hard for motherhood, she's thinking of putting her career on hold.

"I'm not saying I'm not that interested in making films anymore," she recently told Telegraph, "I know I'm not meant to say that, but that's where it is for me now. I'm 41 years old and very happy being in Tennessee with my baby and my husband."

Nicole Kidman at Mommy-and-Me? Gymboree? Could be ... but will it stick? Nicole is a highly successful actress; will mommyhood offer her enough of a creative challenge?

When my older daughter was born, I had planned to take 12 weeks off and return to a career I love. When she was eight weeks old, I sat down with my husband and explained that I wanted to become a stay-at-home mom. He was surprised, but no one was as surprised as me. I loved my job, but had suddenly found a new calling.

Did parenthood make your life take a surprising turn? And if you decided to stay home after your baby was born, was it part of the plan all along, or did it take you by surprise?
