“Just the way she came into our world — we needed to have every bit of faith we could muster,” Keith told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson about Faith Margaret, who was born via surrogate. “It was completely out of our control. We just kept saying, ‘We gotta have faith, we gotta have faith. She’s going to be fine.’ “And we just thought, ‘What a perfect name for her,’” he said with a smile.
“Margaret is the name of my dad’s mother, my grandmother,” Nicole added. “She had her last baby when she was 49, so, she’s my inspiration.”
As for why they decided to keep Faith Margaret’s birth a secret, Nicole says it was tough, but it was best for everyone involved. “I wanted to be able to tell everybody because I was so excited about her,” Kidman told Giuliana Rancic at the SAG Awards. ”We just decided this was our thing together. It kind of just perpetuated itself. It protects her and it protects everyone in the situation.”
So how is 2 year old Sunday Rose reacting to the new addition to the family? “She’s so into [Faith] and she’s crazy about her,” Nicole said. “We really wanted Sunday to have a sibling, you know, so, so now we’ve got Sunday and Faith Margaret…we’ve got our hands full! We’re really happy.”
