Nicole says her father came up with half of Sunday Rose's unique name when he mentioned Sunday Reed, a patron of the arts. "And we went, 'Oh, we love that day'—that's our favorite day because I think there's something to do with Sundays where if you're lonely, Sundays are a very lonely day," Nicole says. "And if you're happy and you've got your family and the things around you, then Sunday's a beautiful day. So our baby's called Sunday."
In the past, Nicole says she thought she would never be able to give birth. So when she found out she was pregnant, she says she was stunned. "I call her a miracle baby because it was a miracle that I, at this age, had spent so many years trying to get [pregnant] just thought, 'Well, it's not my path—that's not what I'm going to get to experience.'"
Nicole says she was still filming Australia when she found out she was pregnant—and it may have been thanks to a little magic involved while filming on location. While shooting in Kununurra, Australia, Nicole says she and six other women took a dip in a remote watering hole. Later, all seven woman became pregnant! "So we would joke that there was something in the water," Nicole says.
When Sunday Rose was born, Nicole says she was surrounded by her husband and nine women—including family members, a female doctor and a doula. Just talking about the birth makes Nicole emotional. "I think something happens when you give birth ... I cry so easily now, and I don't know why. It seems something triggered me."
Nicole says Bella and Connor are adjusting well to the new addition. "They have Suri, so they have got now just another baby sister," she says. "But they're very used to having children around. They've had kids around them because they grew up with cousins, Suri and now Sunday Rose."
