“I was so young when I got married. I look back now and I’m like, ‘What?’ ” Nicole revealed to Red magazine. The couple adopted two children, their daughter Isabella and son Connor, but divorced in 2001.

Now, 15 years after their divorce, both Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman have been married again. Although Tom has since got divorced again after his six year marriage to Katie Holmes fell through. Tom has one daughter from the marriage, 10-year-old Suri. However, reports state that hasn’t seen or spoken to his daughter Suri in three years.
