Keith Urban feels "blessed" to be married to Nicole Kidman.

The 'American Idol' judge, who tied the knot with the 'Paddington' actress in 2006, always puts their relationship before his career because he wants it to last forever.

The Australian singer, who has daughters Sunday, six, and four-year-old Faith with Nicole, told Us Weekly magazine: "Like any union, you work at it.

"We put marriage first. If it's not your top priority, you're not really married. I'm blessed I found Nic."

The 47-year-old star, who has battled drug and alcohol addiction, previously credited the Oscar winning-actress for helping him to stay sober and encouraging him to go to rehab shortly after they got married.

He said: "I was very, very blessed to have Nic call an intervention on me. I didn't give a s**t about anything except turning a corner in my life and doing whatever it took for that."

Meanwhile, Keith insists he still enjoys finding new talent on 'American Idol'.

He said: "It's effortless for me because I love it. it helps that the talent is especially exceptional this year."
