Nicole Kidman has enjoyed an “emotional” reunion with her daughter Bella.
The 49-year-old actress has reportedly met up with the 23-year-old make-up artist in the UK and gave her husband Max Parker, who she married in a secret ceremony in London last September, her seal of approval.
A source told Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine: “It was a very emotional moment for all of them, especially Nicole.
“It didn’t take long for her to burst into tears, and Bella soon followed.
“Nic has been trying to build bridges with Bella since the start of the year.
“Nicole took an instant liking to Max and could see that he and Bella get on really well.”
Earlier this year, Bella – who, like her brother Connor, 21, was adopted by Nicole and her former husband Tom Cruise – slammed claims she was on bad terms with her famous parents because neither of them had attended her wedding.
She said: “Of course [we talk], they’re my parents. Anyone who says otherwise is full of s**t.”
Tom claimed he couldn’t attend the wedding because of his busy schedule while it was rumoured Nicole – who was in London at the time – wasn’t invited because she is labelled a ‘suppressive person’ by Scientology leaders.
And Max – who isn’t a Scientologist but confirmed his wife still is – admits he was upset the ‘Mission: Impossible’ star wasn’t there to give his daughter away.
Asked if he was bothered, he said: “Yeah. It is what it is.”
Despite Nicole and Tom’s combined wealth of around $600 million, Bella and Max have rejected financial support and live in a modest one-bedroom house.
IT specialist Max insisted: “I’m still a regular guy.”
Asked if Bella’s detached herself from the fame and fortune side of her life, he added: “Yeah, you could say that. It’s more [of a] weird [situation] for everyone else.”
Meanwhile, Max’s parents, Beverly and Lester Parker, also missed the wedding as they feared it would be a “media circus”.
Beverly said: “We didn’t go but we knew all about it. We stayed away, we didn’t want the media circus.
“The pair of them are lovely, I’m very pleased for them both and they’re very happy.”
And Beverly has no interest in meeting her daughter-in-law’s famous adoptive parents.
Asked if she wanted to meet them, she said: “No, no, there’s no need for that.
“At the end of the day they’re just people aren’t they?”
Nicole also has daughters Sunday, eight, and Faith, five, with husband Keith Urban.
