Kate Hudson’s family is growing!
On Friday, the 38-year-old actress surprised the world and announced not only that she’s expecting her third child, but that it’s a girl. The baby will be her and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa’s first child together, which means her two children, 14-year-old Ryder and 6-year-old Bingham, will soon take on big brother duties.
So what do we know about the growing family?
Ryder’s father is Hudson’s ex-husband Chris Robinson, and Bingham’s dad is ex Matthew Bellamy. And while we had a feeling Hudson would one day add more to her family—she previously told U.K.'s The Times she’d like to have more children—it seemed like her main priority for the past 14 years has been raising her two boys.
The actress regularly takes to social media to share updates about life at home and how they’re growing up. It appears that she calls Ryder #Rydman, as she wrote that in the caption to a recent photo of him.
The 14-year-old also regularly practices a favorite hobby: motocross.
As for her younger son, her nickname for little Bingham could also be Bing Bong, which is how she captioned this photo of him with their dogs.
As we learned back in November, the family’s reunions are major, and include a lot of people like Hudson’s mom Goldie Hawn and her husband, Kurt Russell.
In May 2016, Hudson opened up to InStyle about the struggles of motherhood. “Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children,” she wrote in an essay.
“…Even though every primal ounce of the nurturing, domestic woman in me gets pulled, I’m a hunter as well. And I love to hunt! And as a woman I feel that somehow we are supposed to feel apologetic about wanting both. But I don’t want to apologize for that anymore. Being both already comes at an emotional cost, without adding society’s antiquated idea of the traditional roles of man and woman in the home.”
“Yes, I help my kids with their homework. But I also get bored doing it. I will sit and listen to my children pontificate and discuss their ideas till the day is long because it warms my heart, but I really don’t want to do math! I’m gonna say it: I’d prefer to watch 'The Bachelor' rather than do fractions and divisions.”
Something tells us she’s going to handle baby No. 3 just fine.
