Nicole Kidman Talks Fertility, Admitting 'Pain and Loss'

February 21, 2011 (9:53 am) GMT
The actress who had second daughter Faith Margaret by gestational carrier said she was struggling with fertility while she wanted to fall pregnant again.

New mum has opened up about her "rollercoaster ride with fertility", admitting she suffered feelings of "pain and loss" when she was unable to conceive. The "Moulin Rouge!" star welcomed baby daughter Faith Margaret - her second with husband - in December, via a gestational carrier.

Kidman insists she "desperately" wanted to fall pregnant again after the birth of daughter Sunday Rose in 2008, and was forced to turn to surrogacy to complete her family. She tells Australia's "60 Minutes" show, "Anyone that's been in the place of wanting another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility. Fertility is such a big thing, and it's not something I've ever run away from talking about."

"We were in a place of desperately wanting another child. This opportunity arose for us, and I couldn't get pregnant."
