Nicole Kidman‘s sister Antonia has penned a heart-wrenching tribute to the pair’s late dad Antony Kidman in celebration of Father’s Day. 

On Sunday, the mother-of-six, 51, said a void will ‘always remain’ following his death in 2014, adding that his passing has caused her to ‘change the way I live my life’.

In a column for 9Honey, Antonia began by saying that Father’s Day has caused her to reflect on the man who ‘was my dad’.

‘He was a committed feminist who was a good husband and lovely father,’ she wrote. ‘His position as the sole male in our very feminine family was a powerful and integral one – I do not think we understood the full force of his role until he was gone.’

Antonia added that she, Nicole and their mother have since been forced to adjust to a world without Antony – but she says a void will ‘always remain’.  

She said that conversations with the scientist and academic were ‘vibrant’, adding he had a ‘wickedly dry sense of humour’ and was ‘completely unselfconscious’.

Antonia said that Antony attended the birth of five of his grandchildren, saying she ‘treasures’ the knowledge that he was there when her children entered the world.

‘His death has caused me to change how I live my life. I now regularly try to take stock of all that I have and accept that the simplicity of life is what makes it satisfying,’ she concluded.
