With as much talent as Nicole Kidman has, it’s only fair that some of her good genes are shared around the family.
So it’s not to much surprise that her 24-year-old niece is starting to make big waves in the entertainment industry, as she’s just secured a major presenting role after years of “working towards” a career in TV journalism.
Lucia Hawley, is the daughter of Nicole’s sister Antonia Kidman, and like her mother, is pursuing a role in TV presenting, as she’s just been announced as the new face of Live From E!, which will see her hosting star-studded red carpets from across the country on the new 7Bravo channel.
In a statement released to announce the new role, Lucia said: “I’m incredibly excited to join 7Bravo and front such a respected and loved brand.”
“Growing up around the entertainment industry, I have watched many Live From E! red carpets over the years and feel so honoured to be able to bring my passion for style, entertainment and celebrities to the role.”
In June 2021 Lucia graduated from The University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts degree and it was first reported at this time that Lucia was very eager to follow in Aunty Nicole’s footsteps.
Lucia is the eldest of six children, and has always had a close bond with Nicole as she is the actress’ first-born niece.
Nicole has taken Lucia along to several A-list events, most recently joining her aunty on the red carpet in 2018 for the AACTA Awards alongside Nicole’s mum and Lucia’s grandmother, Janelle Kidman.
