The beauty and the beach! Nicole Kidman is 48 years old and fabulous!

In newly released photos, the actress showcases her fit and toned body while splashing around in a floral bikini while back home in Sydney, Australia on March 25.

A makeup-free Nicole looks beyond stunning as she frolicked in the water at Balmoral Beach with her mom, Janelle. Images show Nicole smiling and running out of the chilly water, seemingly unaffected by the cool air that begun to sweep over the country.

Photographers said Nicole's swim took place at 9 am.

As she emerged from the ocean, Nicole looked ready to star in a swimsuit catalog, with her flat tummy and toned legs on full display. Quite frankly, she looked flawless.

A week later, Nicole was a bit more covered up as she attended the Academy of Country Music Awards with her husband, Keith Urban.

There, Nicole couldn't stop gushing about her man's upcoming album, an album he said was inspired to her (and we can see why!)

"It is such a crazy good album," she said to Entertainment Tonight. "I've been living with all the songs -- and even the songs that didn't make the album. I've seen the work he puts into it and the love. He's a musician, so every little tiny detail is all him, and I love that. I love that he's passionate about his music."

The couple, who will celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in June, is still clearly smitten with each other.

In January they were asked by reporters what their secret was to a healthy, happy marriage.

"Just want it more than anything," Keith simply explained. "That's it, isn't it?"

"Yeah, prioritize it," she said. "Also, as much as we love each other, we really like each other. I'm speaking for myself, but that is a huge part of being married. Always, the first person I want to share anything with is him. It's true."
