Nicole Kidman praised her husband Keith Urban for being an "amazing" foundation for her over the past six weeks, as she's been mourning the sudden death of her father Dr. Antony Kidman, who suffered a fatal heart attack Sept. 12.

"I recently lost my father and to have my husband be — just step up, in that way, it makes me cry — he's amazing," the Far and Away actress, 47, told Ellen Degeneres of her country singer husband of eight years. "He has been so good to me for nine years, but for the last sort of month ... when you have your partner who just literally carries you through a tough time, he's been amazing to me."

In her appearance on the talk show, the Aussie stunner said "she's gotten so much love from people" in the wake of the tragic death.

"I'm amazed when people reach out," she said, "because it's an awkward thing at times, but to have people go, 'I'm so sorry for your loss' -- the power of that and even a note or anything."


Kidman said there should be more awareness about the effects of losing one's parents, as it's a devastating time everyone will inevitably experience.

As previously reported, the Eyes Wide Shut star's father, a psychologist, died at 75 during a Singapore vacation. Russell Crowe was among the mourners in attendance when the late doctor was laid to rest at Sydney, Australia's St. Francis Xavier Church Sept. 19.

Kidman's chat airs on Thursday's edition of Ellen.
