Taylor Swift Tears Up Over Nicole & Keith Baby News

Sunday Rose Kidman Urban is only a day old – but she’s already a superstar in the country music world.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban welcomed the newborn Monday morning in Nashville. And ever since then, their famous friends have been quick to offer up congratulations.

Taylor Swift was vacationing in Hawaii when she got the news, and she excitedly took to her blog. “Even just thinking about it now, I’m tearing up because I’m so happy for them,” she wrote on her MySpace page.

The country phenom added that Kidman and Urban – both Aussie imports – have been welcome additions to the Nashville scene.

“They’re such incredible people,” she gushed. “Nicole Kidman came to Nashville and treated everyone with grace and respect, and has always been so humble. I’m overjoyed for them.”

American Idol’s Michael Johns was also thrilled for the new parents when people broke the news to him.

“That’s awesome!” he enthused Monday before the A.I. tour stop at the L.A. Staples Center. (The Australian native has become fast friends with the superstar twosome.)

“They’re genuinely a happy couple – it’s not a Hollywood thing,” he said. “They really, really do love each other. So anytime a baby can be born into that situation, it’s pretty cool.”

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Welcome a Baby Girl

Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, have welcomed their first child together, a daughter, born Monday morning in Nashville, people has confirmed.

The pregnancy was first announced in January. Kidman has two other children with her former husband Tom Cruise: Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13.

In the days leading up to the birth, the couple – who celebrated their second wedding anniversary on June 25 – didn’t stray from their normal routine in and around Nashville, where they reside in a gated community.

From early morning stops at a local Starbucks for warm drinks to a little sweat at the gym later in the day (Kidman was a regular at spin and yoga classes during her pregnancy), the couple remained low-key.

“She’s never been happier and healthier,” says a close family friend. “She is absolutely radiant and enjoying nesting and homemaking with Keith at their new home in Nashville.”

But getting ready for their baby was a priority. Urban admitted he was learning a new vocabulary for fatherhood and doing Lamaze lessons. “He doesn’t know the name [of the classes], but he has been very good at it!” Kidman told a local radio station on June 24.

The new parents also bought a couple of books to help them along: Pocket Dad: Everyday Wisdom and Your Pregnancy, Week By Week.

“The unknown excites me a lot,” Urban told reporters in May. “What kind of feelings will fatherhood bring? I’m sure I can’t even imagine, but I am really looking forward to finding out.”

Keith Urban: Nicole Kidman Is ‘Very, VERY Pregnant’

Keith Urban joined pal Kenny Chesney for a hometown concert in Nashville Saturday, and hinted to the crowd of nearly 50,000 that he expects to be a dad soon – very, very soon.

“I’m going to dedicate a song to my very, very, very, very, VERY pregnant wife!” Urban said with a laugh, before singing his hit, “Better Half.”

His real-life better half, Nicole Kidman, wasn’t far away. Kidman, dressed in a brown crinkled silk dress with her hair worn loose and curly, slipped backstage at Nashville’s LP Field just after Urban began his hour-long set.

“Well, we’re home, Nashville,” a buoyant Urban yelled to the screaming crowd during the concert, before wishing them a happy Fourth of July, telling them, “We were blowing things up last night!”

Urban and Kidman spent the previous evening at pal Ronnie Dunn’s house for the Brooks & Dunn singer’s annual July 4 party that features a homemade fireworks show.

There was speculation that Urban might join headliner Kenny Chesney. Instead, the singer left the stage after his set to join his wife. The two walked hand-in-hand, pausing briefly to wave to the crowd, to a waiting golf cart that whisked them away.
