Kidman revealed the news in a recent interview with Net-A-Porter’s The Edit. While discussing her new show, “Big Little Lies,” and her co-stars ― one of whom, Zoë Kravitz, is Lenny’s daughter ― Kidman said she already knew the “Divergent” actress “because I was engaged to her father.”
“It’s all in the family!” she added. “I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”
Kidman and Lenny dated in 2003, a couple years after her divorce from Tom Cruise, People reports. Rumors about the former couple’s engagement made their way into the celebrity news cycle, as they do, though it was never confirmed.
Kidman did, however, admit in a 2007 Vanity Fair interview that she was secretly engaged at one point, though didn’t reveal the fiancé’s name. The engagement didn’t result in marriage, she said, because “it just wasn’t right. I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”
Of course, Kidman is now married to country star Keith Urban, but it appears she remains on good terms with her former flame. The three of them even posed for some photos at the CMT Awards in 2013.
