Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are all smiles ...

Nicole Kidman says she's relieved that her adopted children Bella and Connor Cruise have "found their path" in life.

The 45-year-old actress rarely speaks about the children she adopted with ex-husband Tom Cruise, after Bella and Connor chose to live with their father after the divorce.

Speaking to Extra while promoting her new movie Stoker, Kidman mentioned that 18-year-old Connor is now DJ-ing and 20-year-old Bella lives in London.

20-year-old Isabella and 18-year-old Connor Cruise are Nicole's adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

"Everybody has their own path and when they find their path it's such a relief as a parent you know," said Kidman, who jetted into Sydney on Wednesday for the AACTA awards.

The actress is also mother to Sunday, four, and two-year-old Faith by husband Keith Urban.

She revealed that Urban is the stricter parent.

"I try to be strict, it's very hard with two," Kidman admitted.

"I try to be respectful, I try to respect them as little people because that's what they are, so I give them a voice and I listen to them and try to guide them because that's my job as a mum.

"Keith's pretty cool. He's actually probably stricter than me naturally."

And when it comes to the girls growing up and beginning to date, Kidman thinks Keith won't be too overprotective.

"With dating I think he'll be cool as long as the guy's incredibly decent and fits all the criteria," she said.
