Keith Urban Explains How Wife Nicole Kidman Broke Her Ankle

Over the weekend, fans noticed Nicole Kidman wearing a walking boot in one of Keith Urban's Instagram posts and now, the country star is explaining the story behind her attire.

During a recent appearance on the Australian talk show, The Project, Urban revealed that Kidman has broken her ankle while jogging in their neighborhood near Nashville. She tripped in a pothole, rolled her ankle, suffered a "small break," Urban shared.

"She broke her ankle so there's not been a whole lot of dancing in the house," Urban said in the interview. "About five weeks ago, she was running around the neighborhood as she does and just didn’t see a pothole and rolled her ankle and got a small break in her ankle."

He continued on to say that Kidman has been wearing the boot for several weeks now as she continues to heal from the injury.

"She’s been relegated to the boot for the last handful of weeks and is still getting through it," he added. "But her spirits have been amazing, I gotta say. She’s been handling it way better than I would’ve."

Urban and Kidman are currently quarantined in their Tennessee home with their two daughters Sunday Rose, 11 and Faith Margaret, 9. The country star says they are anxious to get back to Australia to see family but aren't sure when that will actually be due to the ankle injury and the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We want to be able to see our moms, too, and Nic’s sister is there, all of her family, my brother and his family," Urban shared. "Everybody’s there so we're really anxious to get back."
