Father Paul Coleman has been a huge part of the Kidman family, performing Nicole’s confirmation when she 12.

He was also an integral part of her 2006 nuptials to Keith Urban.

The priest passed away on Monday aged 90 and his funeral will be held at St Mary’s Church, North Sydney next Thursday.

Nicole Kidman’s career is at an all time high.

Nearly two weeks ago she took home the Emmy for best lead actress for her role in Big Little Lies.

Despite all her success, the actress is exceptionally grounded – with her focus always returning to her loved ones.

No word if Nic will be joined by Keith and the girls.

In her acceptance speech for the accolade, where she was criticised for not mentioning her two older adopted kids, Connor and Bella Cruise, Nicole thanked her loved ones.

“I have a huge artistic family who supported me throughout all my ups and downs,” she said.

“You have been so loyal to me throughout my whole life thank you for that.”

“I am also a mother and a wife. I have two little girls, Sunny and Faith,” she said, in reference to her children with Keith Urban.

“This is yours. I want my little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, ‘Every time my mama didn’t put me to bed, it’s because of this. I got something!'”
