The new puppy will no doubt go down a treat with Nicole's two young children, Sunday, eleven, and eight-year-old Faith, who she shares with husband Keith Urban. Nicole has had an exciting few days with her family, as they have been celebrating Sunday's birthday in Paris. The little girl turned eleven on Tuesday, and Nicole shared a photo on Instagram of her two daughters in the French capital during their mini break. Sunday and Faith have been travelling around with the family over the past few months as Nicole filmed Big Little Lies. They even appeared in the hit TV show as extras, and have had play dates with the child actors in the show.

While their mum is a famous movie star, Nicole is happy for now that her children stay out of the spotlight and enjoy their childhood. As a result, she has admitted that she is quite strict with her daughters about certain things such as technology.She told Vanity Fair: "They don't have a phone and I don't allow them to have an Instagram. I try to keep some sort of boundaries." She paid tribute to her little girls while accepting her Best Actress Award for Big Little Lies at the 2017 Emmy Awards. "I am also a mother and a wife. I have two little girls, Sunny and Faith. This is yours," she said. "I want my little girls to have this on their shelf and to look at it and go, 'Every time my mama didn't put me to bed, it's because of this.'"
