She's a cutie, it's no (big little) lie!

To celebrate Father's Day in the US, Oscar-winning actress and national treasure, Nicole Kidman shared a rare throwback photo of her own father, Dr Antony Kidman and her husband and father to her daughters Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, Keith Urban.

Get ready folks, it's pretty cute.

The starlet gushed on Instagram, "Happy Father's Day Papa and Keith Lionel. Thank you for being the most wonderful, kind and loving fathers. The girls and I know how fortunate we are."

Nicole's Papa, psychologist Dr Antony Kidman, passed away in 2014 from a heart attack and following his death, Nicole struggled with grief.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show soon after his passing, the award-winning actress said, "Everybody loses their parents and it's awful. I'm sorry to bring everything down, but I'm at the same time trying to navigate through something right now. And I'm amazed when people reach out, because it's an awkward thing at times, but to have people go, 'I'm so sorry for your loss' ... the power of that, and even a note or anything, which I've gotten so much love from people."

"When you realise that someone has gone through a similar thing or is going through a similar thing, it really connects you."

In her second photo, Nicole paid tribute to her husband Keith Urban (was anyone else surprised by his middle name, Lionel?) with a rare glimpse into life in the Kidman Urban household.

The snap showed daughters Sunday Rose, 10, and Faith Margaret, 8, playing with their dad, and with their long curls and flowy dresses, we had to do a double take...they're mini Nicoles!

Nicole also has two children, Isabella, 25, and Connor, 22, whom she adopted with her first husband, Tom Cruise. Unsurprisingly, there was no tribute to him.

In a 2012 interview with the Australian Women's Weekly, Keith highlighted how Nicole comes before the kids.

"We're very, very tight as a family unit and the children are our life, but I know the order of my love," he says. "It's my wife and then my daughters. I just think it's really important for the kids.

"There are too many parents who start to lose the plot a little and start to give all their love to the kids, and then the partner starts to go without. And then everybody loses. As a kid, all I needed to know was that my parents were solid. Kids shouldn't feel like they are being favoured. It's a dangerous place."

Keith, who grew up in a house of boys, has also praised his wife for her parenting skills.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the country artist confessed, "[She's] an incredible mum. Loving, maternal, and [she's] teaching me a lot about how to raise children, especially girls."

Even when they're on the go, this family are too cute for words!
