Will Keith Urban’s Romance Never Cease?

Keith Urban is about 5 feet 6 inches. His wife Nicole Kidman is right around 5 feet 11 inches. That is a lot of celebrity to get into one bathtub, but it sounds like they manage to do it.

In the recent issue of People magazine, on one of the very last pages, there is a Q&A with Kidman about her new thriller Before I Go to Sleep, in theaters now.

And she admits she takes baths before bedtime every night that she can.

“Every night, I like lavender baths. It helps me sleep,” she says. “Keith and I have been known to take baths together — many times. It’s so nice! We squeeze in.”

Let that image sink in a little.

Then when you’re done with that thought, picture Mr. and Mrs. Lovebird watching TV and Kidman dancing and Urban adoring her for it.

When the magazine asked Kidman the last time she danced, she said, “Last night.”

“I was watching Dancing With the Stars, and I got up and danced to an old Captain & Tennille song, ‘Love Will Keep Us Together,'” she said. “Keith was like, ‘Gosh, please continue to do that till the day we die.'”

You can’t blame Urban. Have you seen Kidman dance? Even her little groove during the Doobie Brothers’ “Listen to the Music” at the CMA Awards was sexy as hell.
