“I’d like to stay married!” Keith told The sun† ‘Nighttime I hate myself during the day, it’s so true. But the next morning at night I am nowhere to be found – he is totally inexplicable.’

Keith – who shares daughters Sunday, 13, and Faith, 11, with Nicole – added: “Life is very different these days. I’m trying to be a good example for the kids, but I’m still not sure if I’m doing it right.

“I’ve made so many mistakes, but you have to find what works for you. bMy message to them is always that they should do what they are passionate about, I don’t care as long as they work hard to achieve it.’

Keith said it helps him stay sober as he keeps up with his successful career which includes touring, releasing music and working as a mentor for The Voice Australia.

Keith recently recalled the moment his wife Nicole staged an intervention for his addiction problems, in an excerpt from the book Keith Urban by Jeff Apter.

Keith told Rolling Stone magazine in 2016 that he would have understood if Nicole, 54, had chosen to leave him after his rehab in 2006, as the couple had only married that year.

“I was very, very blessed to have Nic call me,” Keith said, adding that his reckless behavior “caused the implosion of my new marriage.”

He also reflected on the intervention with Oprah Winfrey, admitting to the famous talk show host that he was “derailed” and “needs help and a new direction” in his life.

Nicole, who was working in Rome at the time of his bowing, flew back to the United States and gathered his friends to organize an intervention.

“The love in that room at the time was just right,” Keith told Oprah. “To see love in action like that … I’d never seen anything like it.”

Keith has been open about his past struggles with alcohol addiction, revealing at the 2018 South By Southwest conference in Texas that he wished he’d gotten sober earlier in his life.

“I wish I had gotten sober many years earlier, but it is what it is,” he said.

“I knew I wasn’t at my full potential, and that started to affect me. I was enslaved… I lived a very, very small life.’

Keith also admitted that he “sucked on relationships” before meeting Nicole, and that his lyrics about love were far from his reality.

‘I would write these songs about love and relationships; I remember writing Somebody Like You and playing it for my girlfriend at the time and she just looked at me and said, “You’re a hypocrite,” and I couldn’t argue with that,” he said.

Keith and Nicole met in 2005 and tied the knot a year later. They are parents to daughters Sunday Rose, 13, and Faith Margaret, 11.
