Actress Nicole Kidman
is determined to shield her daughter Sunday Rose
from the public gaze - describing herself as a "lioness" protecting her cubs.
Kidman, wife of country singer Keith Urban
, gave birth to the tot in July - and admits it is tough being a parent in her 40s. She is also the mother of adopted children, Bella
, 15, and Connor
, 13, from her previous marriage to Tom Cruise
. And the Moulin Rouge!
star is adamant she will protect her children from outsiders.
She says, "At 41, it's a more painful love. It's almost like my heart is stretching - I'm feeling like all these muscles stretch with emotion. It's a beautiful love but there's a lot of fear and pain for her life - and for Bella's and Connor's life. When it comes to my kids, I'm like a lioness. I'm like; no one gets near my babies."
