They have seemed more affectionate and happy than ever despite a whirlwind of rumors regarding the state of their relationship and marriage, but unfortunately, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have been forced to accept that they need to be apart when it comes to a big night for both of them in the coming weeks.
The pair have dished on being in a "fantastic dilemma" because the Grammy Awards in L.A. and The BAFTA Awards in London are both on Feb. 12-and the pair will need to spend the night away from one another because they're each nominated for awards at their respective ceremonies. And though they know it will be tough, the couple admitted on the red carpet at the SAG Awards over the weekend that they understood they need to deal with it.
"We couldn't believe it. It's an amazing thing to be honored in both our fields in the same night at the same time," Kidman said. "I would so love to be there grooving to his tunes, you know?"
Kidman is up for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her movie Lion at the BAFTAs, while Urban is nominated for two Grammy Awards, for Best Country Album for Ripcord and Best Country Solo Performance for "Blue Ain't Your Color."
"Rarely does that happen where two evenings like that, that are both important to us, in the same night," Urban added. "But we feel really grateful that we get to be honored in our fields, and we recognize that."
"We just love being together," Kidman continued. "He's my protector and my rock...[But] we'll Facetime or call. We like to see and hear each other."
