SYDNEY (Reuters) - Hollywood star Nicole Kidman and singer husband Keith Urban asked the paparazzi on Thursday to leave them and baby daughter Sunday Rose alone, saying she was a "tiny doll" who would be scared by the attention.

"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," Kidman told Sydney radio station 2Day FM.

"She's tiny. She's like a doll, she's like a little, little thing. Just (don't photograph) right in her face or in our faces because it's scary for her," said Kidman.

Kidman, country music star Urban and baby Sunday arrived in Sydney on Wednesday, after the Oscar-winning actress gave birth in Los Angeles in July.

Unlike other celebrities, no photographs of Sunday have been released and Urban said they had no intention of selling any.

"I get the interest there is. But at the same time it's our little girl," he told the breakfast radio show.

"Sometimes when people come right up in your face and you think: 'Good God, would you do that to anybody else's child?' That's all," he said.

Local media said paparazzi followed Kidman, Urban and Sunday to their home on Sydney Harbour, with the couple using several decoy cars to try to avoid photographers. A newspaper published grainy photos of the couple arriving on a private jet, with Sunday bundled up in a blanket.   Continued...
