Nicole Kidman looks for her father's advice to help husband Keith Urban fight against alcoholism.
Seeking help to support her husband's struggle against alcoholism, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman has turned her head to a psychologist, who is none other than her own father, Dr Anthony Kidman.
The "Cold Mountain" star has reportedly been engaged in lengthy phone conversations with the man since Keith Urban entered Cumberland Heights rehab clinic in Nashville last Thursday, October 19.
"Nicole's dad is getting her through it with a mix of professional advice, fatherly guidance and Catholic beliefs," a source said to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "Dr Anthony and his wife Janelle are expected to fly to the USA this week to be by their daughter's side."
Urban, who married Kidman last June in Australia, previously expressed his deep regret for upsetting the beauty because of his alcohol abuse while showing his resolution to get rid of the awful habit.
"With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome," so he stated.
