Nicole Kidman and new husband Keith Urban -- known affectionately to us here at the Gossip as Kurban -- spent the July 4 holiday with friends and family in Nashville, Tenn.

The newlyweds started off Independence Day by having a club gym opened up exclusively for them, then took a leisurely stroll (below) through Centennial Park in downtown Nashville, right across from the Vanderbilt University campus. Strolling hand-in-hand, the happy couple made sure to walk through The Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon.

In other Kurban news, some mementos from their wedding in Australia are rumored to be on eBay, including a menu from the reception, a piece of wedding cake, the ceremony program and an engraved Tiffany desk clock.

Public Service Announcement From The Gossip: No matter how big a fan you might be of Nicole's acting and/or Keith's crooning, if you consider spending money on a piece of their wedding cake, you should start seeing a whole team of psychiatrists. Thank you.

Eva, Nicole, Nicole, Eva. Tony, Keith. Keith, Tony ...

Now that introductions are over with, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban (aka, "Kurban") can carry on with their honeymoon, while Tony Parker and Eva Longoria can carry on with being young and beautiful.

Longoria and the San Antonio Spurs star, Parker, accidently crashed Kurban's honeymoon in Bora Bora this week. Just minutes after the newlyweds landed, the flight of this hot couple also touched down in the city.

The couples are staying just steps away from one another in a pair of waterside villas along the boardwalk at the St. Regis resort. As a result, staff members on jet skis are regularly patrolling the perimeter of the resort as a security measure.

Rumors are also swirling that Parker may be popping a certain question to Longoria during this soiree. Perhaps the sight of a content Kurban will inspire the basketball star to drain the biggest jump shot of his life. Figuratively speaking.

Nicole Kidman and crazy former spouse Tom Cruise may have pulled a fast one on the Catholic Church and blinded it... with Scientology!

While it has been speculated that Kidman got her first marriage annulled so that she and Keith Urban could marry in a Catholic chapel, it turns out she and Cruise weren't legally married in the first place -- as far as the Catholic Church is concerned, at least.

Father Paul Coleman, the longtime Kidman family friend and priest who presided over the Kurban nuptials in Sydney, Australia, told the BBC that in Kidman's first marriage, the requirements for a valid union were not fulfilled. She wed Cruise in private, in accordance with his Church of Scientology views.

"The Catholic Church sets down requirements to have a valid Catholic marriage," he said, referring to this past Sunday's wedding as a spiritual homecoming for Kidman.

You don't have to be Catholic yourself, interestingly, but you do have to seal the deal in a Catholic place of worship, which Cruise and Kidman did not. Therefore, while Catholicism frowns on divorce as a rule, the fact that Cruise and Kidman parted ways in 2001 did not affect her second trip down the aisle.

Chances were slim that Kidman would have been granted an annulment, though, given that they were legally married for 10 years, a long time to suddenly claim that the union was fraudulent, entered into under misleading circumstances or other such reasons people give for erasing a marriage from the record books.

On a happier note, after Kidman and Urban were cleared to get hitched in a romantic, cliffside Catholic ceremony, they were good to go on a romantic, secluded honeymoon before returning to their new home in Nashville, Tenn. The newlyweds were spotted boarding the blushing bride's private jet and were reportedly bound for either Fiji or Tahiti.

Brangelina and Bennifer, make room for Kurban. Yes, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban officially tied the wedding knot this weekend.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Celebrate

The ceremony took place just after sundown Sunday night at the Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel outside of Sydney. Guests included Russel Crowe and Naomi Watts.

Hugh Jackman and Neil Finn performed at the ceremony, as carnations and roses blanketed the guests. The Gossip doesn't believe this to be true love because Nicole hasn't followed the performance of a certain ex-husband and jumped on any couches recently. But we still wish Kurban the best of luck.

It seems unlikely this was part of the advice a priest recently gave her, but Nicole Kidman has asked fiance Keith Urban to sign a prenuptial agreement.

The pact guarantees the country crooner just over $600,000 a year for every year the couple is together, the New York Post reports. There's also a clause that excuses Kidman from giving a cent if Urban, an ex-coke addict, uses illegal narcotics or boozes excessively. Amen to that, sister!

The agreement, signed in Los Angeles earlier this month, also calls for joint custody of any kids the couple has together.

In Kurban wedding news: Kidman is expected to wear a long white gown with a Victorian-style high collar during the Catholic ceremony, expected to be held at an old Gothic chapel overlooking the sea in the Sydney suburb of Manly.

Among the 200 guests expected are:

  • Meryl Streep
  • Julianne Moore
  • Russell Crowe
  • Naomi Watts
  • Hugh Jackman

The Gossip is still awaiting its invitation.

The priest officiating Nicole Kidman's wedding to country crooner Keith Urban says the key to their lasting happiness could be as simple as keeping things spontaneous and fresh.

Father Paul Coleman, a friend to the Kidman family for nearly 30 years, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he has been advocating these methods for the couple to keep love and romance blossoming during their marriage.

"You've got to use little strategies, strategies [such as] surprises, keeping some form of romance in the relationship, even after 20 years," he said. "To me, it's wonderful that Keith's mother and father have been married for 42 years and Nicole's mother and father have been nearly the [same]. That's an outstanding achievement and something that fills you with hope."

Kidman and Urban will reportedly wed on Sunday afternoon, although the exact time and place have been closely guarded by the Australian couple. It will be Nicole's second marriage, after her 10-year union with possibly insane actor Tom Cruise broke down in 2001.

While Coleman refused to confirm where or when the service would be held, he did say the ceremony would take under an hour, and mentioned the homily he plans to deliver. He will urge Kidman and Urban to find time for one another despite their hectic schedules.

"It will be after one of the scripture readings just to put what the marriage means in the context of the lives of Nicole and Keith," he said. "You need to find time. Everyone's so busy today, with their work and paying off mortgages and looking after children; somehow we just have to find [the] time for each other."

Look out, TomKat: Kurbin is coming for you!

After finally announcing their engagement last month, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are on the verge of exchanging vows. The couple hase returned to Australia and confirmed it intends to tie the knot soon.

"We are very happy to be back in Australia," the film star and country music singer said in a brief joint statement. We have come home to celebrate our wedding with our family and friends."

The date and venue are yet to be confirmed, but rumors are swirling that the ceremony will be Catholic and will take place in Sydney on June 25.

The Australian media reported guests have been told to keep their schedules free for most of next week, as they'll only be told of the nuptials 24 hours ahead of the ceremony. That's more time than it took Kidman's ex-husband, Tom Cruise, to supposedly fall in love with Katie Holmes.

Kidman and Urban, both 38, met in January 2005 at a black-tie dinner in Los Angeles sponsored by the Australian government. Despite planning to get married in Sydney, the couple intend to live in Nashville, Tennessee, where the Grammy-winning Urban is based.

"I've moved to Tennessee for my personal life. I'm establishing my new home there," Kidman told a press conference in Shanghai on Sunday.
