Country super star Keith Urban says that building a life around recovery has strengthened his relationship with actress Nicole Kidman.
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, Urban said that getting into recovery has given his relationship a powerful foundation.
“On the one hand, there were times early on when I wished I would have been sober and in recovery and everything when I met Nic and I wasn’t. But the other way to look at it, which is a much better way and so true, is that we’ve been able to build our relationship with that… We’ve been able to build that together,” he said. “That wasn’t something that was in place before I met her, so there’s a real power in that as well, and I think it’s given us a really powerful foundation.”
Shortly after the duo wed in 2006, Urban went to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. He has been in recovery since.
