People magazine’s Web site is reporting that actress Nicole Kidman and her country-singer husband Keith Urban have welcomed a baby girl named Sunday Rose Kidman Urban.
People.com reports that Sunday Rose, Kidman and Urban’s first child together, was born on Monday morning in Nashville.
Spokesman Paul Freundlich confirmed the news, saying, “Husband Keith was by Nicole’s side, and mother and baby are very well.”
Kidman, 41, has two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise: Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13.
Kidman first announced her pregnancy in January, following rampant speculation.
The star couple married just over two years ago in Sydney, Australia.
Keith Urban's publicist has denied reports the country singer has finished rehabilitation, insisting he will resume treatment following his Christmas vacation with wife Nicole Kidman.
Urban has been seeking treatment for alcohol abuse in the Betty Ford Center in Palm Springs, California, since October, but took time out to spend the Yuletide season with Kidman in Sydney, Australia.
The 39-year-old star's trip Down Under prompted reports he had finished rehab, but his publicist Paul Freundlich maintains Urban's battles are ongoing.
Freundlich says, "Keith is on a leave in Australia to be with his family during the holidays. This is a natural occurrence at this point in his treatment. He will continue with his rehab upon his return."
The Christmas visit is the first time Urban has visited Sydney since he wed Kidman in the harbor city in June.

Country star Keith Urban's rehab release has been prematurely announced, according to his publicist.
The singer checked himself into counseling sessions in October after confessing he'd relapsed into alcoholism and, despite reports to the contrary, he's still there.
Reports of Urban's recovery and release came after he was spotted dining in Los Angeles with wife Nicole Kidman over the weekend.
But his publicist, Paul Freundlich, is keen to confirm Urban is still fighting his demons at the Betty Ford Center in Palm Springs, California.
In a statement, he reveals, "At this stage in (Keith's) treatment, patients are occasionally allowed to leave (rehab) for short periods of time.
"Keith is not out of rehab and is not back home in Nashville."

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban continue to fight reports they're dating, but even their publicists are waiting to make the announcement that the romance is for real.
Photos of the Aussie couple walking hand in hand through the streets of Boston have appeared in the new issue of People magazine, prompting reporters to quiz the pair's publicists for the real story.
Kidman was spotted wearing what looked like an engagement ring on her wedding finger, but Urban's publicist Paul Freundlich insists the couple aren't engaged.
Candidly, he says, "Right now it's just a rumor. When and if there's a statement we'll make that public."

Just when the mystery of where former Beatle George Harrison died had supposedly been solved, it takes another turn for the worse.
Paul Freundlich, a spokesman for Paul McCartney, has vehemently denied Tuesday's report on the Los Angeles UPN affiliate's News 13 that Harrison died of cancer Nov. 29 while in a home owned by McCartney.
Since the controversy started brewing over the accuracy of Harrison's official death certificate, which listed a false address as the exact place of death, many fans have been left wondering. The UPN report seemed to have answered the question.
The news story reported that McCartney had bought the Beverly Hills enclave from Courtney Love six months ago and visited Harrison two weeks before he died to tell him he could use the private estate to spend his final days.
Freundlich, however, told Reuters the story was "complete and utter fiction."
"The fact is that Paul McCartney does not own a home in the state of California, never mind Beverly Hills," Freundlich added.
He did say that McCartney briefly rented a house in California several months ago while recording his new album Driving Rain but had "absolutely not" offered to buy or rent a house for his ailing ex-bandmate.
News 13's News Director Larry Peret declined immediate comment, according to Reuters.
