When Keith and his wife Nicole Kidman welcomed Sunday Rose last July it was speculated that she was named after Sunday Reed, the muse of Australian artist Sidney Nolan. The country star tells Ellen DeGeneres that his daughter’s name holds a more personal meaning for him as well.
“Particularly when you don’t have someone in your life… in my experience, Sunday was the loneliest day,” he says in an episode set to air tomorrow. “It went from being sort of the most dreaded day of the week for us to being the most joyous day, because we just had a family.”
Keith, 41, and Nicole are both native Australians, though they now make their home in Nashville. He admits the combination may result in Sunday picking up a rather unique accent.
“I think she may say, ‘Good day, ya’ll.’ A nice mix.”
