Nicole Kidman has requested that the Sydney press give her and her newborn baby "a little space" while they visit the city.
The actress, husband Keith Urban and their one-month-old daughter Sunday Rose are in Australia to meet Kidman's family and the Moulin Rouge! actress asked that the family be respected "so we can walk around Sydney and show the baby our town".
Sunday Rose Kidman Urban was born in Nashville, Tennessee last month and country music star Urban told radio station 2Day FM that he hoped photographers would not get "right in her face or in our faces because it's scary for her".
While Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently sold the rights to exclusive pictures of their newborn twins to celebrity magazine People and Hello!, Kidman and Urban have no plans to do the same with the new addition to their family.
"I get the interest there is. But at the same time it's our little girl," Urban explained.
"Sometimes when people come right up in your face you think, 'Good God, would you do that to anybody else's child?'"
Kidman and Urban were married in Manly, Australia in June 2006 and recently celebrated their second wedding anniversary at their gated community home in Nashville.
The Cold Mountain star adopted two children with ex-husband Tom Cruise but disclosed last year that she had suffered two miscarriages during their ten-year relationship.
Sunday Rose is Urban's first child, however, and he described fatherhood as an "awesome" feeling.
"Anybody out there who's got kids [knows] it's just a certain kind of feeling that you can only experience when you do it," he added.
"She's just awesome, cute little thing. I'm not looking forward to having to go on tour and having to leave."
Kidman can next be seen in Baz Luhrmann's Australia, reuniting with director for the first time since 2002's Moulin Rouge! for which they both received Oscar nominations.
