At 47, actress Nicole Kidman doubts she will bear children again with her husband and country star Keith Urban but she said in an interview, "I hope every month that I'm pregnant."

During an interview with Kyle & Jackie O on KIIS in Australia, the Oscar-winning actress said she would welcome another child at her age but has her doubts that it will happen.

"I would be jumping for joy if it happens," Kidman told the radio hosts. "I'm 47, it won't happen."

E! News reported that Kidman gave birth to Sunday Rose in 2008 at age 41, while the couple's youngest daughter, Margaret Faith, was born to via surrogate in 2010. She and ex-husband Tom Cruise adopted a son and daughter when they were married.

For older women like Kidman there are significant challenges in giving birth. Physicians at the March of Dimes and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists told CNN that women experience a higher risk of miscarriages, or having a child with a chromosomal disorder or Down syndrome or dealing with gestational diabetes during pregnancy.

"Whatever can go wrong goes wrong at an increased rate for a woman who is older starting pregnancy," Dr. Alan Fleischman told CNN in 2010. "Evolutionarily women generally reproduced in their teens and 20s. Centuries ago we didn't live much longer than our 40s and 50s. We haven't changed the basic biology of how our ovaries and uterus work."

Kidman also talked on the radio show about losing her father, Dr. Antony Kidman, last month. The elder Kidman, a clinical psychologist at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia, collapsed after exercising at the Tanglin Club in Singapore, where he was visiting his daughter Antonia, reported the New York Daily News.

"So many people did reach out and it's the greatest thing," Kidman said. "It is so beautiful and means so much. … It's the worst thing to go through. He was an amazing man."
