The next day, Kidman celebrated her husband on Father's Day, also sharing a tribute to her late dad in the same post. She shared a slideshow of two photos, the first a throwback photo of herself with her mom, dad and sister and the second a snap of her and Urban hugging their two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret. "The recipient of the love of a truly great father, and the wife of a truly great father," Kidman wrote. "Happy Fathers Day."

Kidman's father Antony died in 2014 after he fell while visiting Kidman's sister Antonia in Singapore. Around one month after Antony's death, Kidman appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she discussed the importance of connecting with others during such a difficult time.

"Everybody loses their parents and it's awful. I'm sorry to bring everybody down, but at the same time, I'm trying to navigate through something right now and I'm amazed when people reach out because it's an awkward thing at times but to have people go 'I'm so sorry for your loss,' the power of that, even a note or anything, I've gotten so much love from people," she said. "There's something about when you realize someone else has gone through a similar thing or is going through a similar thing, it really connects you."
