Nicole Kidman says waterfall helped pregnancy



Tbdnicolekidman092508 Nicole Kidman really should eat more, since she's obviously a bit light-headed. The Aussie actress actually said that swimming in waterfalls in the Outback boosted her fertility and helped her conceive daughter Sunday Rose, who was born in July. Gee, we thought Keith Urban had more to do with that than anything.

"I never thought that I would get pregnant and give birth to a child, but it happened on this movie," Kidman told Australian Women's Weekly in interview about her upcoming flick, Baz Luhrmann's Australia. She says she and six other women who went wading in the water got knocked up.

"Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy. There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now."

Not so kooky is her discussion about why her baby bump was so miniscule: "I'm so lucky I'm so tall, so I carried small and also, I have to say, I had a birth that I was blessed with, a labor that was very good and a baby that was very good to me in that regard."

That much we can believe. Kidman's like 7 feet tall, so it's akin to a giraffe having a baby. Except the giraffe's not as freckled.
