You may be surprised to hear Keith Urban say he loves his wife Nicole Kidman more than he loves their two daughters. In an interview with The Australian Women's Weekly , Keith explains that making Nicole a priority is actually better for their kids.
He says, "There are too many parents who start to lose the plot a little and start to give all their love to the kids, and then the partner starts to go without. And then everybody loses."
Keith remembers feeling comforted to know his parents' relationship was solid when he was a kid. He wants to give that same feeling to his young daughters.
"Kids shouldn't feel like they are being favored," Keith says. "It's a dangerous place."
Of note, Keith makes his debut as a mentor on the Australian version of The Voice on Sunday, April 15.
