Nicole and Keith: Why We Chose USA for Our Baby

1/18/2011 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban could have hired a surrogate in Australia -- and it probably would have been easier for them -- but they chose the US of A because they're just not as big here.

Sources directly connected with the birth of Faith tell TMZ ... Nicole and Keith were frank about their choice -- that in Australia they live in a fishbowl and they can't do anything on the down low.

The couple told people connected with the birth that the U.S. is so "entertainment oriented," they're just two of many celebs and aren't scrutinized the way they are in Australia ... making it a lot easier to have the baby without anyone noticing.

And it worked.  Before TMZ broke the story, we called some of Nicole's reps, who were totally unaware she had hired a surrogate who had given birth.

This is why it's important to have children around later 28's or mid-30's...than having people carry kids for you.

This story is totally screwed up. First of all Nicole didn't hire a surrogate. Secondly, the baby's name is Sunday Rose not Faith. So before you go spouting off junk get your story straight!!

Kidman is 43 years old, health issues are a concern for baby and Mother.. Oh yeah, and then there is vanity.

My apologies to TMZ I guess I ran my mouth before I got the story straight. Thought you were speaking of their first daughter, I didn't have any idea they had another child named Faith. My bad :(

Yeah, these two idiots stick it to the Americans with their inane questionable entertainment value, and hire a surrogate here so the folks in their own Country - Austrailia - don't think any less of them. Doesn't matter in the USA, because we're all stupid anyway, right? Where do these users pay taxes?
