He may have the looks, but the first time Keith Urban met now-wife Nicole Kidman, the country star could have been a little smoother.

In honor of the Oscar-winning movie star’s 46th birthday today, it is only fitting to relive the first time the celebrity couple set eyes on each other.

In this November 2010 interview with Oprah, Keith revealed that he felt intimidated approaching Nicole during G’Day LA (a Hollywood event that honors Australians) in 2005 and also admitted to failing to strike up much conversation.

“I didn’t know if I was bothering her or what was going on,” Keith told Oprah of their first encounter. After he walked away, he added, his friend told him he thought Nicole had wanted to talk to Keith. “Me?” he recalled telling his pal. “She wanted to talk to me?”

He eventually went back over to Nicole, started talking, “and we just kind of clicked.”

And now, seven years after they married, the two are the proud parents of daughters, Sunday and Faith.

Happy birthday, Nicole!
