Nicole Kidman is on the cover of Glamour, and has been named one of the Women of the Year for 2008. She sat down with the magazine for a revealing interview about her new baby, her husband, her work with UNIFEM, and her marriage to Tom Cruise.

When talking about baby Sunday Rose, Kidman said she looks just like husband Keith Urban. Asked if this was the happiest she’s even been, she replied:

“Yes. But ‘happy’ isn’t an all-encompassing-enough word. I’m in a place of gratitude and humility. I don’t take any of it for granted…The journey of life—we all go through it: You have love, you lose love, you find new love. To have love again is a beautiful thing.”

She went on to say that she can’t stand to be separated from little Sunday Rose, which is why she hasn’t hired a nanny yet. She told the magazine that she had an easy labor and described husband Keith Urban as her “rock” during the experience.

She also spoke about how difficult Urban’s alcohol addiction was early in their marriage:

It brought us to our knees…. Addiction is very prevalent in our society, and it can be shattering to both people in the relationship. But working through it together was an extraordinary path. It’s very easy for a couple to experience joy together. But when you experience pain together, it can lead to such depth and such union. That is when you fuse.

On her work with UNIFEM, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, Kidman stated that she feels very dedicated to giving back to other women. She spoke of a visit to a women’s shelter in Kosovo and the stories she heard while she was there, and she explained that it was her mother who first introduced her to the good work that UNIFEM does.

On the inevitable Tom Cruise questions, she stated:

I felt I became a star only by association. I didn’t think [the early movies] were very good, which is why I would always cower in the background. I thought, I don’t deserve to be here. We would go to the Oscars and I would think, I’m here to support him. I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard.

She said she was “devestated” after her marriage to Cruise ended, and she spent six years alone after her divorce, and used work as her escape from what was going on. She said the experience taught her how to stand on her own two feet and helped her find her own identity.

She said Connor and Isabella, the children she adopted with ex-husband Cruise, are both “very adoring” of new little sister Sunday Rose. She said Connor would like to have a little brother, and she jokingly suggested Katie Holmes, current wife of Cruise, work on that for him.
