Keith’s childhood was very difficult because of his father, and yet this did not stop him from becoming a good dad

Keith Urban is a well-known star. He has millions of fans, dozens of awards, and a nice family. Today, he looks really happy with his wife Nicole Kidman in all their photos, but it wasn’t easy for them. Keith had to work a lot to get over his difficult childhood and leave his bad habits in the past to become a loving husband and father to his 2 daughters.

At the beginning of his career, Keith’s life was far from ideal. He lived in a very poor area, and his neighbor was a very problematic young man. For some time, Keith managed to avoid getting into trouble, but after he broke up with his girlfriend, he couldn’t control himself anymore. He ended up in a never-ending cycle of party life.

Keith was lost in this lifestyle for more than 10 years. Yes, he earned money but spent a lot of it on his bad habits. It seemed that nothing would change. But in 2005, Nicole Kidman appeared in his life and became his savior.

One year after they met, they got married. But unfortunately, it was too little time for Keith to change his lifestyle. Just 4 months later, it became a very big problem. But Nicole didn’t give up and didn’t leave him. She was determined to help her husband. And she did.

After 3 months of hard work in rehab, which Nicole helped him get into, the singer put a definite end to his past life.

“I caused the implosion of my fresh marriage. It survived, but it’s a miracle it did. I was spiritually awoken with her. I use the expression ‘I was born into her,’ and that’s how I feel.

”There’s a reason behind everything that happened to Keith — the trauma he had in his difficult childhood wouldn’t heal. The singer grew up with a cold father that never said he loved him. And every time Keith would perform on stage, his father would only criticize him, nitpicking over the smallest mistakes.

But today, the singer can honestly say that he’s grateful to his dad for the success of his music career. Ironically, Keith spent most of his childhood looking for his dad’s approval, and it was exactly the thing that made him want to get better.

“My dad’s love of country music set me on my life’s journey and shaped so much of who I am today.”Maybe, it was the desire to not be like his father that made Keith want to have his own family and kids. Fifteen years ago, he said that he was looking forward to becoming a good father.

And this dream came true. In 2008, the couple had Sunday Rose, and in 2010, Faith Margaret. The singer had always thought he knew what it meant to be a father, but he quickly realized he had been wrong.

“I didn’t have kids ’til later on, and being around it is not the same as having them. I realize that it’s not something that can be explained until you actually sort of have it, so I’m glad I got to experience that.”

Keith isn’t shy to admit that he adores being a parent, especially having girls. He didn’t have any sisters, and his little girls have changed his view about many things. By the way, even though he and his wife are worldwide-known stars, their kids are raised far from the crazy attention of the press.
