Sydney baptism for Nic's baby

Jesuit Fr Paul Coleman will officiate at a Sydney baptism for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's baby daughter Sunday Rose but no date has yet been set.

The Sun-Herald reports Fr Coleman who married the pair in June 2006 revealed he would be honoured to conduct the ceremony following discussions with the Kidman family.

"I am delighted at the birth of Keith and Nicole's child and I will be very happy to baptise and christen her," Fr Paul Coleman told Marcus Casey.

"It's a beautiful name and I am thrilled and pleased for them both. They deserve every happiness and joy after trying so hard for this baby they really wanted."

Fr Coleman has discussed a Sydney baptism with Kidman's parents Janelle and Antony but is yet to confirm the arrangements directly with the celebrity couple.

"Nothing is concrete, but I am just hoping we can have a very moving and happy ceremony for Nicole and Keith's baby here with the grandparents," Fr Coleman said.

Kidman's father, Dr Antony Kidman, told the Daily Telegraph he suggested the name to his daughter. Antony Kidman said that he'd read about Sunday Reed, who was a patron of the arts in Australia.

Nicole Kidman and Urban liked a quote from Reed, who said, "When you are young you are given a good view of life, because of your closeness to birth."
