Keith Urban isn’t like most celebrity dads in the entertainment world. In fact, he’s quite the opposite of what you see on magazine covers, red carpet premieres, and of course, social media.

5 They Are A Normal Family
While there are plenty of celebrity families who like to share everything about their world on social media, the Urbans are not like that at all. As a matter of fact, they like to keep certain things private and to themselves.
In other words, they don’t let their celebrity status or some of the things that the media says get the best of them. “We have a real life in the sense that we do the most normal things as a family, and we don't live on social media all the time.

At the end of the day, all that matters is that the girls are happy. Nicole also told Vanity Fair, “You can’t really get kids into anything, I’ve realized. You can push them a bit, but motivation is a really hard thing. I mean, nobody motivated me to be an actor; if anything they tried to deter me.”
