When it comes to texting, it’s a crying emoji for the Kidman-Urban household! Nicole left fans’ heads spinning last week when she revealed that she has never texted her husband Keith.

Discussing the secret to their happy 17-year marriage, the Aussie actress says it’s all down to her texting rule, which first started when they got together in 2005.

“We never ever text, can you believe that? We started out that way – I was like, ‘If you want to get a hold of me, call me,'” Nic, 56, confessed while chatting on podcast Something To Talk About.

“I wasn’t really a texter. I think he tried texting me a few times and I never texted back. Then it was like, this is quite nice.

“If you really want to get a hold of me, you have to call me. Everyone else we text with. That’s just the one thing we don’t do.”

The Big Little Lies star prefers “voice-to-voice or skin-to-skin” contact, but she does allow the occasional FaceTime.

Nicole and her “favourite person” Keith are famous for their marriage “rules”, previously revealing they never go more than two weeks without seeing each other.

Later in the podcast, Nicole discussed how fun it is to be a mum to her teenage daughters Sunday Rose, 15, and Faith Margaret, 12.

“We just had a whole bunch of 14- and 15-year-olds with us, which is really fun. I love it. I love being around their energy and their ideas. And then I have a 12-year-old as well. So there’s a lot of great energy in our house and really different ideas that bounce around from all walks of life,” Nic shared.

“My sister [Antonia] has six children as well, so we have a lot of that. A lot of ages and a lot of perspectives on the world. Everyone has their voice, and I think it keeps you engaged in what’s happening in the world.”
