"My time is precious. I think once you reach a certain age, the time becomes incredibly important. You're like. I'm raising a six and an eight year old who are in school so there's only a certain amounts of time I can work because of their school year," Nicole told Australia's Studio 10.

"Keith and I always say that we are just so lucky to have each other. In this world, to be able to come back to that love and that strength is so nourishing and powerful. And I am coming up an 11-year wedding anniversary, 12 years together, and that's a big thing. And that is through absolute commitment and kindness, the desire to protect and help each other, what our relationship is," she said.
