June 21 (UPI) — Hollywood star Nicole Kidman celebrated her 50th birthday with her family this week.

The Australian actress rang in the occasion Tuesday with husband Keith Urban, whom she married in 2006, and their two daughters, 8-year-old Sunday and 6-year-old Faith.

“Nothing makes me happier than being with my family. Thank you for all the love and birthday wishes. Love you all,” Kidman wrote on Facebook.

“So happy to be with my family. Nothing makes me happier,” she added to a photo of herself with her birthday cake. “Thank you for all the birthday love and birthday wishes. Wow, what a cake!”

Kidman’s “Big Little Lies” co-star Reese Witherspoon and longtime friend Naomi Watts were among those to wish the actress a happy birthday online.

“Wishing a big happy birthday to my dear friend, the one and only, mega-talented, #NicoleKidman!!! I hope you have a gorgeous day filled with laughter and love. Love you, lady!!” Witherspoon wrote on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday to this beautiful woman,” Watts added on her own account. “A remarkable human who gives so much love and spirit to all those around her. My friend, I am so happy to have shared incredible experiences with you over the last 3 decades. May there be many more to come…”

Kidman dazzled this month at the 2017 Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London. She won Best Film Actress at the ceremony, and spoke about defying ageism in Hollywood in her acceptance speech.

“I’m going to take this as a birthday present,” the star told the audience. “I’m about to turn 50 in two weeks, and I would never have thought this would be one of the best years of my life.”

“I want to tell all the women out there — it is not over at 40, it begins. And it even begins more at 50,” she added.
