By the sound of it, you’d think Nicole Kidman's pool was the set of a horror film. 

A huge tarantula made a surprise appearance and seriously scared the Academy Award winner’s children. But the massive arachnid was nothing she couldn’t handle. The 51-year-old actress rescued the spider and says it’s healthy and unharmed.

House guest! Catch and release…spider released unharmed and healthy ❤️Happy Sunday
