“Nicole took one look at that baby during casting and melted,” says a source from the set. “She told anyone within earshot she would love a baby boy and it’s been her husband’s dream to have a son ever since they met.”
According to a source close to the Big Little Lies star, Nicole has talked about wanting a boy for some time, naming him Antony Robert after her and Keith’s dads, who both sadly died within a year of each other.
Despite the couple currently residing in Australia, where Nicole has just finished filming her new series, Nine Perfect Strangers, the source reveals the pair will likely return to America to began the adoption process.
“They’re looking to proceed with a formal adoption when they return to the US, likely toward the end of the year,” shares the insider.
The source adds: “It’s easier to adopt in America than it is here, so they’ll look to head back to Nashville once things calm down with the virus and political landscape ... they’d prefer not to leave things too much longer.”
