She was born in 1970 in Melbourne to Antony Kidman, a clinical psychologist, and Janelle, a nursing educator.

Kidman started her career in journalism at the Nine Network as a researcher for the Today program.

In 2006, Kidman became the presenter of the popular lifestyle show The Bigger Things, which discussed a range of adult questions on love, relationships, single life and buying real estate, to name a few.

After several years spent in the public eye, she was awarded Favourite TV personality at the 2008 ASTRA Awards, for the second time.

In addition to her television and journalism work, Kidman has also co-written two parenting books - Feeding Fussy Kids in 2009, and The Simple Things: Creating an Organised Home, a Happy Family and A Life Worth Living in 2012.
