Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban have introduced their youngest daughter to the woman who carried her for nine months.

The meet and greet comes after the 49-year-old actress reportedly spent months of "soul-searching" after the couple welcomed Faith via a surrogate six years ago.

"It was incredibly emotional," a source tells Woman's Day, adding the meeting took place in Nicole and Keith's Nashville home.

"Nic and her surrogate had difficulty holding back tears. Faith wasn't fazed by it at all, but she did ask lots of questions afterwards."

Be has reached out to Nicole's reps for comment.

The magazine adds that while Nicole and Keith have always been open with their daughter about how she was born, they wanted her to meet the woman affectionately known as "Aunty Shelia" before she got older.

The woman reportedly lives nearby, and although the Lion star doesn't want to overwhelm Faith, the insider added the Kidman-Urban clan are keen to invite her and her family over for regularly get-togethers.

"Nic and the woman are just trying to take things one step at a time... but they are forever tied together by Faith," the source continued.

Nicole turned to a surrogate after struggling with fertility issues following her first pregnancy with eldest daughter Sunday. She also has two adopted children from her marriage to Tom Cruise.

Despite nearing 50, the actress hasn't ruled out adding to her family, saying she still holds hope of falling pregnant.

"In everything that has happened in my life, being a mother has been the overriding thing that has changed everything and made it better," she told The Mail in January.

“I still have the faintest hope that something may happen to me this year. Keith and I would love to have more babies. My grandmother gave birth to my mother at 49. I would be beyond happy and just welcome it with open arms.”
