Keith Urban helps daughter, 2, record tracks in studio

Keith Urban helped his two-year-old daughter record her first songs.

The country music singer – who is married to Nicole Kidman – says he was keen to get little Sunday Rose behind the microphone when he took her to his studio recently and was thrilled when she showcased her vocal talent.

He said: “She came down to the studio the other day, and I put little headphones on her, and she came to the mic and she did two songs.

“She did ‘ABC’ and she did ‘Twinkle Twinkle,’ beginning to end. It was so cute to see the little headphones on her. It was cool.”

Although he has not written directly about Sunday and Nicole on his new album, ‘Get Closer’, he says his family are the main inspiration behind the LP.

He told People magazine: “I haven’t written literally about Sunday, but there’s a deeper purpose that’s come from my marriage and now from fatherhood. So, I’m drawing inspiration from that sense of purpose and a feeling of love that I’ve never had in my life before, and that has come from both my girls.”

While Sunday seems to take after her father when it comes to singing, Urban recently revealed he is glad the tot has inherited the stunning actress’ enviable long pins rather than his.

He said: "I think she's a combination of both of us so far. But she got my wife's legs, which is very lucky for her. She sure didn't deserve mine."
