Who Keith Urban Dated Before Nicole Kidman
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting couples. The pair have been married since 2006 and share two daughters. However, what do we know about who Urban dated before meeting Kidman?
Keith Urban was previously engaged
Before his days of country superstardom, Urban was just another aspiring musician living in Nashville, Tennessee. While he tried to break into the music industry, Urban spent time with Laura Sigler. The pair were even engaged for a time but ended up breaking things off.
Little is known about the former couple’s relationship. In 2005, Sigler spoke to TODAY about her past relationship with the singer, claiming that Urban could not commit.
“Nicole and Keith might date for a while,” she said, referring to rumors that the pair had gotten engaged. “But it won’t last very long. I don’t know her, but I know him very well.”
“There were a lot of lows with the drugs,” she continued. “I don’t have any dark past — he was probably the darkest part, but I’m on my own now and I’m happy about that.”
Keith Urban and Niki Taylor’s romance
After Urban’s relationship with Sigler fizzled out, he began dating supermodel Niki Taylor. After surviving a terrible car accident, and even spending six weeks in a coma, Taylor decided she needed to change her life.
The model moved herself and her twin boys, Jake and Hunter, from a previous marriage, to Brentwood, Tennessee. Shortly after, she met Urban.
The relationship was very serious. Taylor and Urban moved in together, and she even starred in the music video for his song “Somebody Like You,” which eventually went No. 1 on the country music charts. The couple also got matching tattoos that read amor vincit omnia, which translates to “love conquers all.”
As Urban’s career took off, the relationship started to fall apart, and the couple ultimately called it quits in 2004, two years after they began dating.
There seems to be no ill will between the pair. Two years after the split, Taylor spoke about their relationship, saying, “His career got really busy, I got really busy, and we never saw each other.”
Keith Urban and Niki Taylor’s marriages today
Urban met Kidman a year after his breakup with Taylor. The two were both appearing on G’Day LA, a Hollywood event promoting Australia, in January of 2005. The couple started dating six months later.
They tied the knot on June 25, 2006, in their native Australia. Two years later, Kidman announced she was pregnant, and gave birth to daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban in 2008. The couple welcomed a second daughter in 2010, named Faith Margaret Kidman Urban.
Taylor also found love again. In October of 2006, she announced her engagement to NASCAR driver Burney Lamar. It was a whirlwind romance, with Lamar proposing after just three dates.
Taylor and Lamar met in January of that year at an autograph session. Their wedding was in December of that year. The couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Ciel Taylor Lamar, in 2009.
While Taylor and Urban’s relationship ultimately didn’t work out, it’s nice to know that everything worked out for them in the end.
