There are a lot of celebrity couples that just seem like they were made for each other, but none of them measure up to actress Nicole Kidman and her country singer husband, Keith Urban.

Just like the rest of you, I was laughing along as Urban was surprised with a pair of American Music Awards back to back last year.

And just like his fans have come to expect, the singer delivered a heart-melting acceptance speech, thanking Kidman for her support.

But this week the country star revealed his life has not always been so happy, and that he once depended on his wife to rescue him from addiction.

As two of the most famous Australians in Hollywood, it's no surprise that Urban and Kidman first crossed paths at an event honoring Australian entertainers.

The actress says she "literally stumbled into" Urban, and they felt a connection right away.

The relationship was the perfect chance for Kidman to start over after her messy divorce from Tom Cruise, and the pair began a whirlwind romance.

Trouble In Paradise

Less than a year after they met, Kidman and Urban were engaged, and began their new life together.

"Meeting her and getting married wasn't life-changing, it was life-beginning," the singer said about their wedding.

"It was literally, like, 'OK, life starts.'"

But just months into their relationship, Urban's inner demons almost tore the couple apart.
