Coldplay’s Chris Martin may not give a rat’s ass what you think of his kids’ weird names, but it turns out Nicole Kidman‘s a tad more conciliatory about the matter. Quizzed over the unusual choice of Sunday Rose, Nicole Kidman‘s father Antony explained that the name was his suggestion.
Antony Kidman and his wife Janelle forwarded the name, they said, because they were inspired by the turn of the century Austrialian socialite Sunday Reed. Reed, a boho babe for her time, was notorious for her extramarital affair with the famous artist Sidney Nolan and passed her later years by his side. In 1981, after his death, she committed suicide.
