- Kate Hudson opened up about parenting her three children in a new Women’s Health cover story.
- She says that she makes mistakes all the time, but sometimes she’s feels like a “f*cking supermom.”
- Kate co-parents her two sons, Ryder and Bingham, with her exes, and her daughter Rani with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.
Kate Hudson rocks. She rocks as a mom, actress, and entrepreneur, but she also keeps it real. (Hello, launching her own vodka line, King St., this month.) “I have days where I’m like, ‘I’m a f*cking supermom,'” she told Women’s Health in an interview for its December issue cover story. Kate’s “supermom” days are jam-packed. “I am cooking, I am cleaning, I am doing homework, I am changing diapers.”
Not every day can be a super one, though. “My thing with parenting is, I make so many mistakes all the time,” she told Women’s Health. “I know this, I know that I love my kids more than anything in the world. I would die for my kids.”
The actress and entrepreneur mentions a few mistakes that come to mind for her. She says, “But I’ve also yelled at them too much at times, and I’ve also cursed in front of them. I also haven’t shown up for things that I should have shown up for because I was out of town. In no way am I a perfect mother.”
Kate is mom to three kids: two boys and a girl. She co-parents her oldest son Ryder with her ex-husband Chris Robinson and son Bingham with rocker and Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. Her secret to successful co-parenting: “It’s just you’ve got to drop the ego. That’s it.” Kate adds, “Some people meet people, have kids with them and end up not being able to figure it out like me.”
She and current boyfriend Danny Fujikawa welcomed their first child together, Rani Rose, in October 2018.
Her first son, Ryder Russell Robinson, is 15.
Kate had her first child when she was 24. She and his father, Chris, were married from 2000 to 2007. According to People, song “Ride,” inspired Ryder’s name. When she was pregnant and listened to the song, he moved around. She gave birth to Ryder via C-section and garnered criticism for calling her delivery lazy.
Bingham Hawn Bellamy, her middle child, is 8.
Kate had her second son, Bingham, with then-boyfriend Matt. The two began dating in 2010 and welcomed Bingham Hawn Bellamy less than a year later. Bingham’s first name comes from Matt’s mom and middle name comes from Kate’s, per US Weekly.
Kate and Matt requested friends and family plant and donate trees to celebrate his birth in lieu of gifts for their newborn. Matt and Kate later broke off their engagement in 2014, per US Weekly.
Kate’s daughter, Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa, is 1.
Kate gave birth to her baby girl on Oct. 2, 2018, and announced the news with a sweet and simple Instagram post. The post has “10-2-18” on top of a pink background and Kate added, “She’s here 💕” in the caption. “We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa. Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor,” Kate wrote in her announcement post.
She hopes each of her kids can come to her and talk about what they’re going through. “Then I know I did a good job, because I’ve allowed my child to feel comfortable about going deeper.”
Kate’s “supermom” days and those in between are opportunities for learning. “I think at the end of the day what I’ve learned, and what I’m learning, is that I’m doing the best that I can, and that’s it. That’s all I can do. And I know that I’m going to f*ck up my kids, because nobody’s going to do it perfectly.”
Kate added, “I’ll know that I did a good job if my kids grow up and they do work on themselves. You realize all you’re doing is creating a space for your children to be able to do it on their own.”
