Kate Hudson has been often seen watching from the stands as her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, plays for the Yankees. She’s attended games with her mother, Goldie Hawn and stepfather, Kurt Russell, so it’s safe to assume that A-Rod has met Kate’s family. She’s also been seen posing happily in the player’s wives’ section. According to In Touch, Kate is so serious about Rodriguez that she’s pressuring him to have a baby. Kate has son Ryder, 5, from her marriage to Chris Robinson and Alex has two children: Natasha, 4, and Ella, 16 months, with his ex-wife Cynthia. This story comes from In Touch, so it’s just as likely to be wishful thinking on their part. I could see Kate asking for kids, though. She moves fast and they’ve been together three months already.
Kate Hudson has only been dating New York Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez for a few months, but she’s already hoping to start a family with him. The actress has a son — Ryder, 5 — with ex-husband Chris Robinson, but a friend of hers explains: “She just turned 30 and she’s ready to have her second child. She wants Ryder to have a sibling, so she brought up the idea to Alex and told him that they would make a beautiful baby together, and that she would assume all financial responsibility.” But the pal adds that A-Rod, who has daughters Natasha, 4, and Ella, 16 months, with ex-wife Cynthia, is just not ready for more kids right now. That hasn’t stopped him from getting closer to Kate. Last week, the couple stayed at a Hyatt in Toronto together when Alex was there for a game. “Kate loves Toronto and has friends in town,” explains an insider, but it doesn’t sound like she spent much time apart from her boyfriend. “Kate and Alex had a major romantic dinner date at the Bymark — a very high-end restaurant,” explains the insider. “After dinner they went straight back to their suite at the Hyatt, and she didn’t surface until 2 the following afternoon!” Kate has even introduced Alex to her mom, Goldie Hawn, and Goldie’s partner, Kurt Russell, who accompanied her to Yankee Stadium on August 8 to watch the Yankees play the Boston Red Sox. “They cheered when Alex was at bat and he smiled at them when he was on third base,” says an onlooker. Kate has become a fixture at Alex’s games, and she was recently joined by mom Goldie and Goldie’s partner, Kurt. “Alex was flirting with Kate” in the stands, says one baseball fan.

Kate seems so kind to me, but just totally clueless when it comes to guys. It’s like she’s needs her friends to tell her to play hard to get. If this is true, and that’s a big if, I would tell her to skip a few games, go out on the town with friends, and spend some time at home – not calling A-Rod. Let the guy have his freedom and come back when he’s ready. Rodriguez is only 34 and he’s just coming out of a divorce. By most accounts the guy was a big player both when he was married and in the wake of his separation. You don’t pin those kind of guys down by pressuring them to have kids and being available all the time.
Whatever Kate’s doing, Yankee fans credit her with improving A-Rod’s game. Kate and Alex were photographed kissing in late July at a Yankees picnic. The NY Daily News reports that since that incident A-Rod’s batting average has improved 25 points. I have no idea if that’s a large amount or not, but from the big deal they’re making out of it, it sounds like it is.
The Yankee slugger’s latest girlfriend, movie star cutie Kate Hudson, loves to cheer him on from the stands – and he’s been on top of his game ever since they went public.
His batting average since their first public smooch on July 25 is running almost 25 points higher than his season average. And he’s socked two homers in the last three games – including a two-run blast that ended the marathon Friday night/Saturday morning game against the Red Sox.
“It’s gotta help him out a little,” said baseball fan Mike Grassi, 20, from Long Island. “I would definitely play a lot better if I had her as my girlfriend. Now he’s got a beautiful girl and he’s hitting home runs again.”
“He’s got a hot girl on his side,” agreed Erik Vesper, 22, a big Yankees backer from South Plainfield, N.J. “It’s making up for all of her terrible movies.”
The bubbly blond Hudson, 30, has been rooting for Alex Rodriguez all summer, laughing and waving from a front row seat at Yankee Stadium.
The News caught up with Hudson last night at Los Dados restaurant in the Meatpacking District and she declined comment – but smiled – when asked if she’s helped A-Rod’s game.
The two made their relationship official at the team’s family picnic day, cuddling and smooching for the cameras. Ever since, he’s been batting .283 – hitting two homers over the weekend and striking out less. He was 1 for 3 in last night’s game and his season average is .259.
Rodriguez, 33, told reporters Saturday he feels much “freer” and “liberated” this season, after admitting in February to using steroids in the past.
Over the weekend, Hudson brought mom Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell to root for her new boyfriend. Meeting the parents is a nice-guy turn for A-Rod, who was linked to Madonna and a Vegas stripper before divorcing his wife Cynthia last year.
Hudson also went with the Yankees on their last two road trips, cheering on her man in Tampa Bay and Toronto.

I love that guy’s quote, “It’s making up for all of her terrible movies.” Most of Hudson’s films are chick flicks and that guy was probably subjected to a few. Sports fans are so superstitious, aren’t they? If the love of a good woman is working for Alex, good for him. I would still tell Kate to back up and start thinking with her head instead of her heart for a little while.
