Nicole Kidman rarely discusses her adoptive children, Bella and Connor Cruise, whom she shares with ex-husband Tom Cruise, but the Aussie actress recently gushed over her daughter.

The 50-year-old praised Bella for her recent venture into fashion with her new T-shirt line Vega.

"Very exciting," Nicole told Entertainment Tonight while at the Calvin Klein show for New York Fashion Week.

The actress also commented that a love for fashion runs in the family.

"I don't have a fashion line but I think a love of [style] does, definitely," she said.

Nic applauded her eldest daughter on her new tee line which showcases unique designs of different female tops retailing for $85 ($107 AUD).

"I think it's such a great way to express [yourself] and Bella is a beautiful drawer as well," she gushed to the publication. "She's always been able to draw."

Bella even refers to herself as Bella Kidman Cruise on the clothing website, combining both her mother's and father's last names.

Last year Nicole came under fire for only mentioning her daughters she has with husband Keith Urban - Sunday and Faith - in her Emmys acceptance speech.

When accepting her award for her role in Big Little Lies, Nicole thanked her family, saying she has 'two little girls' naming her 'Sunny and Faith, and my darling Keith,' in her speech.

However, in January this year when when accepting her Critics Choice Award for Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series, Nicole thanked all four of her children.

"I want to thank all of my children who show me so much love," she said.

Nicole adopted Bella, now 25, and Connor, now 22, with ex-husband Tom but the couple separated in 2001, eventually divorcing.

Five years later, Nicole married Keith and the couple have two daughters together, nine-year-old Sunday and seven-year-old Faith.
