Two exact solutions of Einstein’s field equations are obtained. One of them describes the Kerr-NUT metric in the background of Einstein’s Universe. The metric of this solution is such that in the vicinity of the source it reduces to the Kerr-NUT metric and in the absence of the source it reduces to the metric of Einstein’s Universe. The other solution describes the Kerr-NUT metric with a non-zero cosmological constant. The details regarding the two solutions are also discussed.
