Nicole Kidman is hoping her daughter SUNDAY ROSE doesn't pick up her and husband Keith Urban's Aussie twang - because she'd love her to have an American accent.
The Oscar-winning actress gave birth to her first biological tot in the summer (08), and the couple has made a home for themselves in the baby's birthplace of Nashville, Tennessee.
And Kidman wants the youngster to ignore her mum and dad's antipodean dialects - insisting she's desperate for her daughter to sound like a southern belle.
Kidman tells Nashville's Tennessean newspaper, "I hope she has a Southern accent. I'm glad that (Sunday) is able to say she's born and bred in Nashville and Tennessee. That is really lovely.
"I think it's very appropriate, considering her daddy. His whole life was headed here - from a little boy, he dreamed of coming here. For him to be able to say his baby girl was born here, I think is very special."
