Up until now, Nicole, husband Keith and their daughters have been travelling from their Nashville base back home to Australia several times a year to visit Janelle.
Nicole’s father, Antony, died in 2014 from a sudden heart attack, and now it appears the Big Little Lies actress is not leaving anything up to chance with regards her mum.
Nicole and Keith’s rumoured plans to relocate to Australia comes after I'm A Celebrity 2020 star Rhonda Burchmore recently claimed Nicole was a diva on the set of the film, Australia.
Speaking on the reality show, Rhonda, 59, said Nicole, 52, was a "flat out diva" during a conversation with British reality star Charlotte Crosby and former footballer Dale Thomas.
"She used to complain about the blowflies and the cows mooing," Rhonda said, before doing an imitation of her demanding cows stop mooing.
After Dale asked if the Oscar-winner was a "flat-out diva", Rhonda responded: "Flat-out!"
Rhonda said she knew Nicole during their acting school days - Nicole studied at Sydney’s Phillip Street Theatre alongside Naomi Watts.
The current reality star also said the actress was "beautiful".
