Nicole Kidman's proud sister
Nicole Kidman's sister Antonia is "absolutely thrilled" about the birth of her niece.
Antonia - who travelled from Sydney, Australia, with her mother Janelle - couldn't be happier for her sister, who delivered daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, her first child with husband Keith Urban, yesterday (07.07.08).
She said: "The birth of Nicole and Keith's daughter is such wonderful news and a beautiful addition to our family. We're all absolutely thrilled with the new arrival."
Antonia isn't the only one to express her excitement about the birth.
Country singer Ronnie Dunn, who hosted an American Independence Day party last week attended by pregnant Nicole and Keith, thinks the fireworks at the event may have speeded up the arrival.
He said: "Nicole told me she was hoping my fireworks would do it. I'm overjoyed for them."
'Can't Fight The Moonlight' singer LeAnn Rimes added: "Nicole and Keith are two of the most kind, caring people I know. They will be wonderful parents - I am thrilled for them."
Meanwhile, baby name expert Pam Satran, co-author of 'Cool Names' and 'The Baby Name Bible', explained the name choice to Us Weekly.
She said: "They chose a really adorable and original name. Sunday is one of the next generation of word names. But it also harkens back to the ancient tradition of day-naming as practiced by many African tribes and originally brought to America by the early slaves."
