Nicole Kidman beat Angelina Jolie to the finish line.

The Aussie Oscar winner and her Grammy-winning husband, Keith Urban, welcomed their first child, a baby girl, this morning in Nashville.

The Monday-born Sunday Rose Kidman Urban checked in at 6 pounds, 7½ ounces, according to a statement from their publicist.

"Keith was by Nicole's side, and mother and baby are very well," the rep added.

On his website, Urban gave a shout-out to his family and fans.

"Earlier this morning, Nic gave birth to our beautiful baby girl," he wrote. "We want to thank everybody that has kept us in their thoughts and prayers. We feel very blessed and grateful that we can share this joy with all of you today. More to follow..."

Presumably the "more to follow" will include why they picked the moniker for their newborn.

Kidman, 41, has two other children from her union with Tom Cruise, Isabella, 15, and Connor, 13. She and Urban, 40, married June 25, 2006.

They announced their pregnancy in January.

Just this weekend, Urban noted that his missus was due to burst at any minute. At a Nashville concert Saturday, with Kidman waiting in the wings, Urban dedicated his song "Better Half" to his "very, very, very, very, very pregnant wife."
