Actress Nicole Kidman said she believes swimming in Australian Outback waterfalls during the filming of the movie, Australia, led to her recent pregnancy, according to the Associated Press.
Kidman said that she and six other women who swam in the waters of Kununurra, a small town in northern Australia, during the filming of Australia, became pregnant shortly afterwards.
"Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy. There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now," Kidman said.
"I never thought that I would get pregnant and give birth to a child, but it happened on this movie," Kidman said Wednesday.
The 41-year-old actress gave birth to a daughter in July with husband Keith Urban. Kidman also has two adopted children with ex-husband Tom Cruise.
"To be given this again is a beautiful thing. To have raised Bella and Connor since I was 25 and now to be able to do it again at 41 . . . wow!" Kidman said.
Australia, directed by Baz Luhrmann, is set during World War II and will be released in November.
