Stars — they sext just like us!

Yes, many a celeb has admitted to sending X-rated texts to their significant others — or been caught in the act — but we imagine that American Idol judge Keith Urban didn't intend on 'fessing up to his steamy SMS habit when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the episode airing today, October 28.

Keith and his wife, Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman, are currently separated by thousands of miles — he's touring with Idol and she's in London filming the family movie Paddington — and Ellen asked the country singer how they keep in touch.

Only by phone, Keith responded — not by email, and not by text.

Wait, really? Does he really not text? Well…

"Maybe one text," Keith admitted. "Maybe one cool kind of, you know … one of those kinds of texts, yes, one of those ones with the accompanying photo."

Ellen played coy, asking, "What kind of text? What do you mean?"

"Nice sex texting," he said, grinning. "I'm a little red right now!"

Hey, at least we know he's honest!
