It's not easy to keep the romance alive when you're miles apart, but Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman work hard at making their relationship strong despite their hectic schedules.
The country star and American Idol judge, appearing on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, happily reveals just how he and his wife of seven years stay in touch.
"We just make it work," says Urban, 45, who is currently juggling touring with his Idol duties, while Kidman, 46, is shooting a movie in London. (The couple's two kids, Sunday, 5, and Faith, 2, are in the U.K. with Kidman.)
"We never text, we never email," he says. "Phone calls only, which I really love that."
He then owns up to DeGeneres that he and Kidman occasionally send other messages.

Her dad's a country superstar and her mom's sung in movie musicals like Moulin Rouge, so it's no surprise that Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's oldest daughter, Sunday Rose, 5, is a fan of good music.
"Sometimes I'll just hear Sunny singing 'Kiss a Girl,'" Urban, 45, says of his 2009 hit. "It's just infectiously catchy pop and I have a side of me that loves that stuff."

A slew of artists rocked Sin City for the iHeartRadio Musical Festival, the star-studded bonanza held Sept. 20-21 that pulled together an eclectic mix of top hitmakers and their celebs admirers.
In what essentially amounted to a mega musical mashup, a bevy of chart-topping mainstays, including Elton John, Chris Brown, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry and fun., hit the stage at the MGM Grand – that is, when they weren't schmoozing with one another in between sets.
The shindig also featured Miley Cyrus's first performance since calling off her engagement to Liam Hemsworth.

Jenny's back on the block at American Idol and she'll have a new neighbor.
"It was so hard for me to leave the first time," says Jennifer Lopez of her return as a judge, adding it also won't be easy coming back because of her busy schedule.
"To be honest right now is the worst time for me to stop and do Idol," she tells the show's host, Ryan Seacrest, on his radio show Tuesday. "I’m doing two movies and I have my album coming out, but I’m doing it because I want to. I love it."

Will Keith Urban remain the last judge standing on American Idol? Or will Fox replace its entire lineup for an all-new panel of judges? What exactly will happen next season?
Until Urban's fate is announced, speculation persists on who will replace Randy Jackson, who announced his departure after 12 seasons on the show, as well as the latest stars to exit, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
After fun and dramatic seasons with the likes of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul and the ever-so blunt Simon Cowell, the possibilities are endless about which star could energize Idol as the show competes with a growing number of singing contests, including NBC's The Voice, amid criticism and falling ratings.
