The couple, who arrived in Australia late Wednesday night, told Sydney’s 2Day FM on Thursday morning, that they wanted to show their four-week-old daughter their home without flashbulbs going off in their baby’s face.
“I suppose Keith and I are both appealing to the press and stuff just to give us a little space so we can walk around Sydney and show the baby our town,” Nicole told morning show hosts, Kyle and Jackie O.

Keith, who confirmed the couple would not be selling pictures of their newborn to any celebrity magazine, said he understands why the paparazzi come out in force, but said they should recognize when he is out with his child.
“I get it, I get whatever sort of interest there is in it… But at the same time it’s our little girl,” Keith said. “I think sometimes when people come right up in your face, you’re just going, ‘Good god.’ I mean, would you do that to anyone else’s child?”
Nicole noted that photographers have already scared little Sunday.

“She’s tiny, she’s not a doll,” the actress said. “Just not right in her face or our faces. It’s scary for her. She’s tiny, [a] tiny little thing.”
While Nicole’s mother, a midwife, and her sister, who has four children of her own, traveled to Nashville for the birth of Sunday Rose, the “Australia” star said the couple came home to give the rest of the family a chance to meet the baby.
“My dad hasn’t met her and Keith’s mum and dad are coming down,” she said.
And it appears when the grandparents do meet Sunday Rose, they will get to see which of her famous parents, the baby looks like.
“She looks like Keith,” Nicole said. “I think she does.”
