Kate Hudson is expecting her third baby, this time with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa

Los Angeles Premiere 'Snatched' - Arrivals

The last time I personally paid any attention to Kate Hudson, it was just after the SAG Awards and I declared her to be my worst-dressed of the awards show. I actually forgot – until I looked at the photos again – how much I absolutely loathed that pink polka-dotted monstrosity. Meanwhile, the last time I paid attention to Kate Hudson’s love life, she was still dating that handsome-ish hipster guy Danny Fujikawa. They met in late 2016 and became red-carpet official in May 2017. I still don’t know much about him, but hey, he stuck around. He stuck around and put in a baby in there! Yes, Kate Hudson is pregnant. She’s expecting her third child. She posted this message to her Instagram:

SURPRISE!!! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the most sick first trimester of all my children. Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been. If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing…I was lying! BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap. We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way 💕

[From Kate’s Instagram]

*Than not then, although to be fair, I sometimes mix them up too when I’m writing too fast (also “queasy” not “queezy” – I’m sure Yeezy spells it that way tho). So, what do you think? Kate Hudson was gone and we didn’t even realize it. She was gone because she was knocked up. I should have known that she’d get pregnant again with another musician/rocker. She only has babies with the guys who make music. Here’s something that made me feel really old: her oldest son Ryder Robinson is already 14 years old!!! And Bingham Bellamy is 6 years old. She likes alliteration, so what will it be for this little girl? Fiona Fujikawa? Felicity Fujikawa? Farrah Fujikawa? Something like that, only more hipster.

Seriously though, congrats to Kate! I’m actually a little bit excited for her that she’s finally going to have a daughter. Here’s her announcement video:

    I hope this relationship lasts. 3 kids, each with a different father, seems complicated and hard.

    • Khymera says:

      My mom had 3 from 3 dads and as she tells it if their not a good father/boyfriend with the first their not gonna be with the second . She married our stepdad.

    • still_sarah says:

      When I saw this, I thought of the years when I worked for a child protection agency. Three kids with three baby daddies was the norm. But I guess it’s different when you are rich 🙂

      Now that I’ve gotten the snarky comment out, best of luck to Kate and Danny!

    • Kelly says:

      Meh. I think context is important. If it’s 3 kids by 3 different dads in 3-4 years, then I’m gonna side eye the crap out of it. Three kids really spaced out like hers are? Life happens.

      • minx says:

        Good point, her kids are spaced out and unlike Winslet she didn’t marry all of them. Life does happen. She’s not my favorite person but she’s going to love having a little girl after 2 boys.

      • Godwina says:

        Yep. I don’t like the ring of slut-shaming there. Not really a fan of KH but she seems like a strong family person.

    • Sally says:

      She is the type of woman who solidifies her relationships with children. I will never understand that logic.

      • tracking says:

        Maybe, I also think she badly wanted a girl. She has a great relationship with her mom, and likely craves the same with a daughter.

      • Happy 21 says:

        I agree with you completely. Not saying this is bad for her but it is what she does.
        She seems like a good mom and she has the means to care for them when things don’t work out with the father so whatever I guess. I just know that if she were my friend and someone close to me, I’d have hit her upside the head! Lol!

    • amyston says:

      It looks like that’s Matt Bellamy over on the side helping little Bingham, so my impression is that while it could be a super messy situation…it’s not.

      • roses says:

        Yes that’s him! Everyone seems really excited about the news. Cute moment to capture!

  2. klutzy_girl says:

    Kate and Danny have actually known each other (she’s friends with his stepsisters, the Fosters) since she was pregnant with Ryder. Then they started dating in 2016.

    Figured this was coming soon after that random E!Online article a few weeks ago where she mentioned she and Danny were talking about having kids.

    Anyway, congratulations to Kate! Thrilled she’s having a girl this time and can’t wait to hear the name.

    • Cynical Ann says:

      Good lord-who aren’t the Foster sisters step-siblings with ??

      • Bethany F says:

        most are FORMER step siblings that people just call step siblings.

      • MellyMel says:

        Right?! I only knew about the Jenners and the Hadids. Hollywood/LA is way too small.

      • Jess says:

        Two different strands of the family. Danny is the son of the fosters sisters mothers partner. Not anything to do with the dad David foster who is the one who keeps marrying into that reality famous circle.Their mother from what I understand has been with the same man ( Danny’s father) for a long long time and they are lowkey people.

      • Argonaut says:

        @MellyMel just to clarify: neither the hadids nor the jenners are stepsiblings to the foster girls. david foster is long divorced from the jenner boys’ mother, and he’s been divorced from the hadid girls’ mother for several years now too. they were step siblings. they’re not anymore.

      • MellyMel says:

        @ Argonaut Yeah I know that. They were step-sibs at one point and still refer to each other as such. But thanks!

  3. Eric says:

    This will be her third kid from 3 different dads.
    Anyone else be like huh?

    • dodgy says:

      Following in Kate Winslet’s footsteps. Fair play to Hudson, she seems to get these guys when they are on the up. If you’re going to go through the pain of having a baby, might as well have it with guys who can and wish to look after it.

      I might sound mercenary, but ehhh, the amount of women I’ve seen with bbs with no account bums, I’m all for women making those decisions with a LOT of care. Go, Hudson.

    • psl says:

      Not a choice I’d make for myself, but at least Kate can afford them. It’s not like she is on welfare.

      • Cynical Ann says:

        It’s not the finances-it’s the messiness from having 3 different men to deal with child arrangements with-deciding on schools/parenting styles/logistics. It’s ridiculous.

      • tracking says:

        Particularly when each of those guys might go on to have more kids with different women, thus resulting in multiple step-sibling configurations. The math alone is exhausting. I’d like to think maybe the kids just have lots of love and good relationships in their lives, but it’s hard to imagine it’s all rosy. I hope this relationship lasts, so at least there will be that stability.

      • Argonaut says:

        @tracking that would be half siblings then, sharing one biological parent, their father. not step siblings, unless one of the fathers marries a woman with kids of her own. then that’s step siblings.

      • tracking says:

        Argonaut, you’re absolutely right, I used the wrong term. Kate’s first ex has a child with his second wife, and her second ex is engaged (and presumably will have more children). So KH’s first two children will each have multiple half siblings and step-parents to contend with. If this relationship doesn’t work out, then so will her third in all likelihood. That is very complicated. As a grownup, I can barely keep track of all parties and who is related to whom, much less comprehend how a child would grasp their place in all this. Ideally, I hope each kid ends up with lots of loving grownups in his/her life, but it seems a recipe for emotional challenges. As other posters have pointed out, there were recent custody issues with ex 1.

    • Bethany F says:

      @cynical ann but it’s her messiness to deal with. her children’s schedules to coordinate. we don’t need to concern troll about how difficult it must be. yeah, seems tough and ridiculous but it’s her life – i’m just glad it’s not my life.

      • Cynical Ann says:

        It’s “celebitchy” I’m not concern trolling-I’m flat out saying having 3 different baby daddies is crazy. If she was a guy with 3 kids with 3 different women I would also say the same.

      • minx says:

        Of course it’s her life lol. But that’s what we do here, express our opinions.

      • Bethany F says:

        @minx same

      • minime says:

        as someone said “life happens” and all that, so I’m not here to judge her on having children from different relationships quite spaced in time.
        Still, it’s not only her life, it’s her children’s life too and to keep an equilibrated relationship between the children and their fathers is certainly not easy in this constellation.

      • otaku fairy says:

        Opinions about what people do with their reproductive organs don’t exist in a vaccum, though.

      • Really says:

        @minx +1

    • Mia4s says:

      As a rule I couldn’t care less what she does as long as she can pay for them…except….am I the only one who remembers the custody issues a year ago involving her oldest son? I don’t think this is all as happy, fluffy, lalala, as she likes it to appear.

      Well considering her career failed at least she can stay in the public eye by offering up pictures of her kids for public consumption. That’s always healthy. 🙄

      • magnoliarose says:

        No, you aren’t. I remember that too, and it was ugly and disappeared very quickly. She disappeared from Social Media because her ex started connecting dots and wasn’t happy and there were some serious allegations.
        So it is her life but rainbows and unicorns it is not.

      • elle says:

        I first read that as “I don’t think this is all as happy, fluffy labia, as she likes it to appear.

        I think that still works.

    • Godwina says:

      No. It’s over a course of 15 years, she’s wealthy and close to her family, and it’s goddamn 2018. It’s fine.

  4. ORIGINAL T.C. says:

    What’s with announcing pregnancies wearing tight fitting white (wedding-like) gowns? Is this going to be a new thing? Congrats to her.

    • Millie says:

      What’s wrong with that? A pregnant lady can’t wear white or show off her bump?

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        I didn’t say “pregnant women shouldn’t wear white or show off their bump”, I said what’s up with this trend? You know like other people everyday on celebitchy question new fashion trends??? But sure misread it as “why don’t pregnant women wear black potatoe sacs and stay locked up in a closet for 9 months without food, air and sunlight!!!!!! *la sigh”*

      • Millie says:

        OK, because to me it seemed like you were going, “Pregnant women wearing tight-fitting white dresses? WTF?” So, thanks for clarifying that you don’t actually have a problem with it?

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        Hmmm….no I’m not from planet Mars nor living under a rock. Every Hollywood event has had famous pregnant women wearing form fitting fabulous dresses (as have regular women). But they are usually not white bride-like dresses. That’s usually done by let’s see….brides?

        A simple “yes, it’s the new trend in spring fashion mags” or “yes it’s a thing in my town” or “no” would have answered the question. LOL.

  5. Astro chick says:

    She’s pulling “the Winslet” or the “the Murphy” – a baby for each dude she’s dating.

    • Frome says:

      Winslet was actually married to each of the men. It wasn’t some oopsies situation, which I suspect is Hudsons case here.

      • otaku fairy says:

        I don’t judge either of them for it, but I don’t see Winslet’s being married to all of her kids’ fathers as a point in her favor. It’s still kids with different fathers (not a bad thing at all).

      • minx says:

        I actually give KH some credit for not marrying all these guys. KW did, and sorry for my cynicism, but you just know she and dorky Ned (I refuse to type his last name) are going to split sometime.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Go ahead and type the last name. I double dare you.

      • Cannibell says:

        1. Think about how well her mother’s marriage to her dad worked out. (Take your time, I’ll wait.)

        2. Goldie and Kurt Russell have been together for way longer than most Hollywood couples. They never married and have a now-adult child together (Boston).

        If there’s one thing KH knows, it’s that marriage doesn’t make a relationship work or not work.

        As for three kids by three different dads – well, I’ve been married more than most, and only had kids with one ex-husband. When people ask whether there was more than one father, I tell them the honest truth – I’m just not organized enough to remember who was whose and would have been sending the wrong kid to the wrong dad ALL THE TIME. Props to KH for management skills.

    • Candion says:

      Their son’s name is Wyatt not Boston. Boston is Kurt’s son.

  6. Millennial says:

    So much “slut” shaming in this thread already. Kate seems to get along fine with her baby daddies. She does it better than most. Live and let live. Congrats to her and Danny.

    • Khymera says:

      Ikr to me it’s sickening, i hate when people act like they only slept with their spouse and god.If it didn’t work out move on.

    • Eric says:

      That’s peculiar.
      I don’t see slut shaming here in these threads yet.

      Seems the comments ask whether one thinks it’s ok to have 3 kids with thre dads.

      I also seem to remember Kate giving the googly-eyes to Thom Yorke way back before Matt Bellamy.

      Pattern of behavior?

      • JustMe says:

        Why is it “ones” business who she’s having babies with? When this kind of conversation happens, yes, it’s a form of judgement and shaming.

      • Merritt says:

        Pattern of what? Wanting to date a man. Being interested in dating a man. Are those now bad things?

      • Nic919 says:

        Well she did post the announcement on IG so it’s not like she is keeping her private life totally private. She is also enjoying the privilege of a rich white woman whose mother is famous. Why anyone is paying attention to Kate Hudson is really more because of that since being Penny Lane over a decade ago would normally make one a has been.

      • otaku fairy says:

        A woman not living her life privately isn’t an excuse for people to get their bibles out about her reproductive choices though. She’s a wealthy, famous person with a vagina who seeks attention AND people are hysterical prudes who think only children who have the same father can grow up to be normal, functioning members of society. It’s not an either/or situation,

      • Nancy says:

        Nic919: Almost Famous was twenty years ago! She was almost famous then, thanks to Goldie! I think Maria from Sound of Music made that pink and black dress from spare curtains. Nepotism runs in the family……I do like Goldie though and Kurt. Guess she disowned her biological father……daddy issues????

      • Shannon says:

        Pattern of behavior? Like, she flirts with guys she thinks are cute? Um … you mean like every hetero girl ever?

        As for who thinks it’s “okay” to have three kids with three different dads, why does anyone get to pass judgment on that? She’s obviously got the means to care for them. I have two kids from two different dads; they’re 12 years apart. It’s worked out fine and idgaf who thinks it’s ok or not ok. It’s 2018.

    • Kitty says:

      I hate that it’s the first thing everyone says, oh three kids three dads! So what? She can afford them, she seems like a good mom, and they seem like good dads. Why the judgement. I’m happy for her, she looks so damn excited when she found out it was a girl

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      Well at least no one is calling her “Uneducated trash” for her *first* pregnancy like on the Cardi B post. They are questioning the possible chaos to the children of having three separate fathers just as men who have children with three separate women are questioned. In general, the blurb on Kate is much, much nicer than that on Cardi B.

      • Kitty says:

        There doesn’t seem to be much drama with Kate and the fathers of her children, significant age differences with the kids too. Cardis situation seems worse, offset is like twenty five with three kids with three different women already. I assume he wasn’t in long term relationships with these women, it just seems like a very dramatic situation to get into

      • tracking says:

        The single most important thing you can do as a parent is choose a good stable co-parent for your child. Unfortunately, Cardi seems to have chosen a lousy one. We have enough info about him to surmise this, whereas we don’t really know anything about Kate’s partner. Maybe their relationship will last, and he’ll be a great father to this baby and step-father to her other kids (like Kate’s own experience with Kurt Russell). No one anticipates that possibility with Cardi’s partner; that’s the difference.

      • oh-dear says:

        Kitty – Chris Robinson has filed for increased custody, so there is some messiness. I am not sure why or where the process is at though – if he is asking for full custody or increased time but I think it was full custody.

      • Nic919 says:

        They initially had joint custody when they split so Robinson was asking for more than that. Then it quieted down in the media with no real explanation.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Kate’s life is far from not messy.
        There were some serious allegations about her neglect and lazy mothering from her first husband, and they were not flattering. She left social media because her ex thought her accounts were too sexual when the son was old enough to understand and so would his friends. But it was more than that.

    • Cynical Ann says:

      Eye roll. I don’t care who or how many people she sleeps with. Of course parenting three different kids with three different dads is going to be more complicated! Her having the money isn’t the point.

    • minx says:

      I don’t think it’s slut shaming to comment on the complications of having 3 kids by 3 different fathers.

      • tracking says:

        +1 This is not remotely about having multiple sexual partners. More power to her there!

      • N.L. says:

        +1. Questioning a complex situation is not shaming. It’s questioning. No judgement has been passed. Hence the questions.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Of course it is not. It is a fact. There is a difference between moralizing and saying 3 different fathers for her children is difficult.

    • cf86713 says:

      Well imagine if Kate Hudson were black how much worse the reactions would’ve been.

      I think its rather tame in comparison. Its also a legit question to think that there are going to be long term complications from this for her kids in the future.

    • Mia4s says:

      From what I can tell it’s not “slut shaming”, it’s “mommy shaming”. 😏

      Look I don’t think anyone cares who she’s sleeping with, it’s the kids and their place in this. And as you will recall a year ago Chris Robinson was looking for full custody of their son (one of the rumours being Ryder wanted away from her and to be with his father). Never look at what the celebrity puts out there, look between the lines.

      Although maybe this will calm her down a bit. She’s DESPERATE to get her career back, has been for a few years. She’ll go to the opening of any envelope. The thirst has honestly been a bit embarrassing.

    • Rae says:

      Totally agree @millenial. I came into this post to see how quickly we would get a faux-caring slut shaming post and I didn’t have to wait long.

      I’m massively side eyeing those posters.

    • Godwina says:

      Thanks for this, M. I was getting grossed out, too. Sanity upon scrolling down. 🙂

      • sunshine gold says:

        I don’t think it’s any kind of shaming really….the reaction might be due to the fact that it just might SEEM, to outsiders looking in, that she goes through relationships quickly and may not be the most grounded person because she dates a lot and seems kind of flighty, whereas MOST people in her peer group (not all but generally) have had more long-lasting relationships.

        Now, that could also be totally wrong, and she is a very stable and deliberate person who has just been more unlucky in love and birth control than a lot of women. If she’d had all 3 with one guy and still divorced him, it might SEEM more conventional. Because more people do it that way.

  7. psl says:

    She is extremely annoying, but I have met her kids. They were both very sweet. Ryder kept asking me questions about my Jack Russell (who was with me). I liked him a lot!

    Good luck to them?

  8. Alexandria says:

    Congratulations. If she’s a great mother who provides well for her kids, raises them to be kind and thoughtful, and can also mitigate against most of the negative aspects of divorce for her kids, why not? Doesn’t matter they have different dads.

    • Lexilla says:

      It does matter in a purely logistical way. I don’t judge or shame the three kids/three dads thing. At all. But I have two kids with one person under one roof and it’s hard enough juggling the schedules and decisions. Having to negotiate such things with three other people for one family of kids sounds…. challenging.

      • Alexandria says:

        I didn’t say it would be a perfect situation for her and the kids all the time which is why I used the word ‘if’. It is understandable and you are right if logistically she and the kids may likely have complications to resolve for scheduling and decisions, and it’s not slut shaming to point this aspect out. It wouldn’t be my personal choice largely because as a start, I am not rich nor do I have help nor is my career project based. But if she could work well with her 3 co-parents (and that is still a possibility), then go ahead. If you are not going to handle these well or think the kids cannot handle these, please do think about it. My cousin is in the same situation and if you asked me, I do not recommend it for her because she is still reliant on her mother and other reasons I shall not dwell on. If Kate is like that, of course we would tell Kate to reconsider. But we don’t know her personally so what else can I say Kate except congratulations? My opinion applies to men too.

  9. Kitty says:

    Love the announcement video, she looks so excited!

    • JennyJenny says:

      I agree! They seemed genuinely surprised and so happy.
      She’ll now have a little girl who the boys will be able to protect. I loved having big Brothers.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Those announcement videos are cute. We have a family member who used the golf ball that you hit and it puffs into pink powder–really adorable. KH is clearly thrilled.

  10. Julia says:

    PSL, given your description of her son playing with your pup, I thought you also had some personal experience of her being annoying. I have no particular experience with Ms Hudson, but I’d rather not autimaticslly default to folks having to prove they are NOT annoying, rather than assuming they aren’t until they prove they are.

    • psl says:

      She is annoying in interviews, and have you read anything about how she tried to play it like she was dating Brad Pitt?

      I am allowed to be annoyed by her – she has been around for 20 years, and I have always found her to be annoying. My feelings.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Oh, I know. I remember the BP thing, and she made some hard plays, and he was not interested. I have no idea why everyone uses him to get a headline even when it is fake as can be. Aren’t there other names to float just for fun?

      • Julia says:

        No rights infringed by asking for rationale– of course, you are entitled to your feelings. I guess, she’s never made that big of an impact for me on the annoyance meter. To each, his/her own…

  11. JustMe says:

    It’s 2018, why y’all so hung up on who she’s having babies with? Take care of your own uteruses and leave hers alone.


    • otaku fairy says:

      You’d think people had never heard of half-siblings with all the pearl-clutching going on.

    • nikitabby says:

      Word, JustMe. What a surprising level of judgmental bitchiness happening here, some of it couched inauthentically as “concern for how difficult it must be”. Please. There are plenty of resources, lots of involved parents, and no absence of love for the kiddos. I’m the product of an educated, successful professional woman who happens to have birthed 3 children (me and my sisters) with three different fathers (all of whom she married, not that it fu*king matters) over the course of 13 years. Many of these comments are beyond offensive and close-minded but I guess that’s what you get on a gossip site. Considering the relatively global perspective I often see expressed on this site, however, I would have expected less mommy/slut shaming. I guess I’ll go sit in a corner now and ponder how awful my life has been as the product of such a “complicated”, “messy”, “crazy” life. Ha. #itwasn’t

      • otaku fairy says:


      • Eileen says:

        You’re being just as judgemental of other posters as much as they are the difference is you don’t agree with their viewpoint so they are wrong-this is celebitchy not Mr Rogers neighborhood

  12. Solid Gold Dancer says:

    I find the reactions to her pregnancy/lifestyle so fascinating! On one hand, she’s making her own non conventional choices (let’s keep in mind she’s wealthy and comes from a big family and support system so whether or not these relationships last she’ll be ok.) On the other hand the idea of a WOMAN having three children by three different men makes people so uncomfortable.
    Let’s say you want more than one child but that relationship has ended. Is it better to have another by the same person even if it didn’t work out or they’re horrible etc. than it is to have another with a new partner? And what if that scenario happens again after your second? Is this becoming the new norm? Also want to throw in there that men have been doing this for a long time and they generally get a pass.

    • Cynical Ann says:

      No-I would give men the exact same reaction. Having 3 kids with 3 different men is 3 different fathers that you as the mother need to deal with. Perhaps you don’t have children so you don’t understand the complications involved with the logistics/parenting styles/parenting discussions you would be having. It’s not having the money to afford the kids-although I do recall recently she and her oldest son’s father were having some custody/finance issues. It’s not as simple as saying, okay, that relationship has ended. Your relationship as parents does NOT end until they’re 18-and even then, you’re still seeing/dealing with that other person at family events.

      • Solid Gold Dancer says:

        @cynical Ann

        Not sure why you assume I don’t have kids by posing that question. Please don’t take any liberties with what you think my life is. There are many scenarios that could result in a woman having more children with different men. I understand that the relationship with the other parent never ends even if you are not together, I was talking about the romantic relationship ending. Once again it’s the strong reactions coming from people that fascinate me.

        Cynical Ann, unless you are living Kate’s children’s lives, or you are Kate herself, you are really just inventing a narrative that doesn’t reflect anything real. And yes, I have kids. And yes, I am the product of a family with multiple fathers. Every family has it’s own particular dynamics that can be messy, whether there’s one or three parents, no parents, grandparents raising their grandchildren, stepparents, open adoptions, etc. etc. Life is complicated no matter what choices we make in life and everything is relative. What’s “complicated” to you doesn’t necessarily feel that way to someone for whom it was always the reality. No need to feel “concern” for those who don’t feel aggrieved by their lot in life.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      No, men having multiple children with different moms get questioned all the time, if they are Black or Brown. It’s White men in similar situations that get a free pass. And *usually* Black and Brown women who get slut shamed.

      My honest answer to your question would be that I would adopt or go to a sperm bank if I wanted more children. I personally wouldn’t want to negotiate with three different men and their new wives/partners regarding everything to do with each child. *shudder* step-mom’s *shudder* But I have super control issues! LOL. Maybe her ex’s are chill and hands off.

      Plus in each relationship I’m sure each man wants their “own” child or she in love with having a part of each man. She’s rich and privileged so…My primary concern is always what’s best for the children not the adults.

      • McMe says:

        @Original T.C. – Thank you for articulating what I’ve been thinking the entire time I read this thread.
        There is no shame in her having three kids with three different fathers. I have a few close friends in the same situation that are great mothers and provide very well for their children. However from what I can see, it’s takes more work to build and maintain close sibling relationship between the children with the different schedules. They’re not in the same place at the same time a lot. Especially difficult on the children is when one child has their biological father in the home and the others don’t.
        It doesn’t matter how much money someone has, or great their relationships with the ex’s are, it’s still a challenging situation.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Yes, this is what I have seen, and worse when one child has a great loving father with a lot of money and one has a father who doesn’t care at all. The case I know of is a wonderful mother four children, three different fathers. The youngest two are a result of her now husband. The oldest has a fantastic father who is committed to co-parenting and is very wealthy. The middle has a father who is self-centered and goes long periods without contact or visits because he doesn’t care that much. Their stepfather is involved and caring, but she is well aware her father doesn’t care about her, and she is in pain. She’s having problems that her mother can’t fix because she can’t change who her father is and how he acts.
        She tried everything including asking him to give up custody so her new husband could adopt her and he was ugly and vengeful. He made her life a living misery for years because of it.

        Instead of accusing every poster of shaming it could simply be life experience talking. It is rarely the case that all fathers or mothers are equally as great.

        On the side, I saw a family where the father had physical custody, but his two oldest daughters had different mothers. One was a super glamorous jet setter and the other mother had mental issues and drug problems. She loved her daughter but just couldn’t hold it together. Her behavior would be fine, and they would build trust and then increase visits and then she would fall apart and do extremely reckless things. The daughter had been traumatized several times including once being left at a strange airport at eight years old, and her mother disappeared. Meanwhile, older sister is hitting the slopes in Gstaad and would spend entire summers with her mothering doing exciting things. The youngest was a baby boy with his partner and adored by everyone.
        Sibling rivalry can be bordering on abusive sometimes, and jealousy can run very deep. I am also a step mother, so I come from that experience as well.

    Maybe since Kurt is more like a Dad to her than her own father, she’s more open to it? It does seem a bit odd to have three different Dad’s in the mix, but at the same time, if she wanted a baby it’s not as though she should be barred from it bc she’ll be on her third baby daddy.

  14. JA says:

    So much hate from ppl about this on her social media especially from women with the “3rd baby 3rd different daddy”?! She’s raising her kids and the fathers are still in the picture just let her be! I like Kate and even though I wouldn’t make the same choices she has regarding her love life so very happy for her!

  15. Bridget says:

    I could have sworn that she was pregnant with this guy’s baby last year. Huh.

  16. Roe says:

    Wel I look forward to the next baby announcement.

    • heh says:

      the way kate was holding that knife and ppl were rushing up to her had me holding my breath more than the reveal did. lol

  17. Ladykeller says:

    In real life I might side eye someone having 3 different kids with 3 dads but she’s not like the rest of us. She has nannies and assistants to help her manage 3 kids and their schedules. Doesn’t she come from a fairly big and supportive family? I’m sure she’s doing just fine.

    • MellyMel says:

      This exactly! Her career, financial situation and family allows her to be able to have three babies by three different men without any serious worries. She has help daily I’m sure, plus she not working an 8 to 5 and trying to juggle everything. The fathers also seems to be very involved. There’s no issue here.

  18. minx says:

    I had forgotten just how much of an eyesore that pink SAG dress was.

  19. HelloSunshine says:

    I mean it wouldn’t be my choice to have 3 kids with 3 different fathers but it’s her choice, they’re well loved and taken care of and I don’t think I’ve heard much drama about her parenting so good for her. She’s happy and, again, it’s her choice. She’s not bringing these children into a bad situation so I don’t see an issue. Congrats to her! I know how awful morning sickness can be and I’m glad she’s feeling better!

  20. lisa says:

    ugh all those balloons are such garbage for the environment

    • Hazel says:

      Yep, they float up to National Forests to die.

    • Char says:

      Yes, I cringed when I saw that.

      Have all the babies you want with as many baby daddies* as you want but there is no need for that type of garbage.

      *That is the first time and most likely the last time I will use that term.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I wanted to say something but refrained. I cringed.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Oh no, wish they hadn’t done that. It’s pretty common knowledge balloon releases are terrible for the environment, especially if you live in a coastal area and they get out to sea.

  21. BAILIE says:

    3 kids with 3 different fathers.

    I wonder, if this is confusing to her kids.

    Maybe she is trying to catch up to Clint Eastwood.

    That guy is some piece of work.

    Did she have some issues with her first ex over child support recently?

    He wanted to have it reduced or something?

    • Candion says:

      Chris R. filed to have their son live with him because he didn’t think she was taking care of him properly.

  22. Sarah says:

    Gender reveal parties bother me so much. They just seem like an extra narcissistic thing to do. Like, it great that you’re having a baby and excited, but is it really necessary to have a party just to announce the gender? People have babies everyday

    • tracking says:

      I know, they bug me too. Just seem part and parcel of “me me me” culture. I can’t imagine even pretending to care about the sex of the child, just wonderful that it’s healthy.

      • Emily says:

        Hahaha I had a friend who had a gender reveal party in December so I gave her a baby gift. She then had a baby shower and I was like nope not going I already gave you a gift but nice try!

      • tracking says:

        Yeah, I would definitely attend one or the other!

      • minx says:

        I don’t even like baby showers. I didn’t want one. When you have the baby people visit you then and bring gifts, and that’s plenty.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Extremely annoying as if them being pregnant is worthy of praise and worship constantly. I refuse to go to them. Thank goodness none of my close friends or relatives are into that.
        I did for my gay married friends who were adopting though but that really was special and unique.

    • lisa says:

      yeah it’s the unholy love child of narcissism and a money grab

      i always decline and say you wont know the baby’s gender until they are old enough to tell you

    • Parigo says:

      Most annoying trend ever.

    • Lucy2 says:

      It bugs me too. I could see having close family get together to find out, but people are throwing themselves big parties. A friend of mine did that, expected gifts then, and gifts at the baby shower, and again when the baby was born. I was like nope!

  23. Jess says:

    I must’ve watched that announcement video 15 times, it’s adorable how excited everyone is and it makes me smile. If I remember correctly she really thought her last was a girl, and it sounded like she wanted a girl, so I’m happy for her😄 I’m sure she would’ve been happy either way!

    • minx says:

      Yeah, it’s very sweet! I had a boy first and we adore/adored him, but I was ecstatic to have a girl next.

      • Jess says:

        I had a girl first and for years I felt like I would have all girls, but the last two years I’ve been dreaming of a dark haired boy and I feel like he’s mine already! Hopefully we’ll get pregnant in the next year or two and see😄

  24. Jess says:

    “They met in late 2016”

    Actually they have known eachother for a long time. Danny is the stepbrother of Sara Foster, who is kates best friend.
    And if you think he’s handsome he pales in comparison to his brothers especially the younger one.

  25. Sara says:

    Since our own pos president had 3 kids from 3 different women, no one should say anything about Hudson.

  26. LizLemonGotMarried (aka The Hufflepuff Liz Lemon) says:

    Shit I just came here to defend the polka dot monstrosity, y’all all up in her baby daddy business. 😂 I know that’s what we do, I just didn’t realize Kate inspired so many strong opinions on Sunday afternoon.
    I like the dress. It was totally different from anything she typically wears (body-con, panels, skin, skin, skin), and 🤷🏻‍♀️

  27. Chrissy says:

    Hopefully this relationship sticks and she will only have to deal with 2 other baby daddy’s. I really like her hair short. It really suits her

  28. PrincessMe says:

    It seems people will judge no matter what. Kourtney Kardashian got judged for staying with Scott and having “a bunch of kids” with him because their relationship was seen as dysfunctional – they said she should have moved on and found someone else who she truly loved to have children with instead of staying with Scott JUST to have the same father of her children.
    Now Kate Hudson is being judged for having multiple fathers for her children (well spaced out) because how dare she decide she wants to have children even though the first and second relationships that bore children didn’t work out. People are even saying that she should have decided to adopt or go to a sperm bank since her relationships didn’t work out.
    Does that mean that if, God forbid something happens between my husband and I (we share 2 children), my new partner and I can’t decide to have children together? We would have relinquished that right in some way? Or is she to give up on relationships and children in general since children are a possibility when you’re having sex (no matter how careful you are)?

  29. Sara says:

    Am I the only one who is upset that those balloons just FLEW AWAY? To land in oceans and kill sea creatures? Really?

  30. Egla says:

    Well congrats to her. The fact that she and everybody there seems genuinely happy is enough for me to be ok with everything, not that it matters to her anyway. That said, I have control issues and I would go absolutely crazy to have so many different people interfering with my daily routine. Each kid a father of her/his own to deal with??? Nop.
    Life happens. I know people with 2 pair of children here and although still rare it’s happening more everyday and is strangely accepted with ease. I like that because finally even here people are starting to understand that nothing lasts forever and when a relationship doesn’t work it’s healthier to move and build a new life with someone else.

  31. Jayna says:

    Her oldest son is a teenager, fourteen now. Chris Robinson had shared custody, He took her to court last year, when Ryder was 13, regarding revisiting the custody agreement. I believe Chris wanted full custody. I read somewhere the boy wanted to live with his father. They both agreed to undergo evaluations and provide records to help determine the best living arrangement for the son. The court ordered her to pay the 7,500 cost of the evaluations. I don’t know what happened with that. Maybe they came to a private agreement before it went back to court. That was a year ago last March.

    She’s closing in on 40 and probably wanted another child, specifically a daughter if possible. Her relationship with her mom is a beautiful mother/daughter relationship. I’m sure whether it was a boy or girl, she would be happy, but finding out it’s a girl is a nice surprise I’m sure. If they are happy, that’s all that counts.

    No, three different fathers isn’t ideal, but life can be messy. Chris Robinson had a child with his wife Allison. I’m sure Matt Bellamy, who is engaged, will be having more children with his younger wife.

  32. HollyGo says:

    Oi vey. How potentially messy. But that video cracked me up. ‘I’m so happy – let me put you in a headlock!’

  33. Svea says:

    So interesting how it’s the girlfriend who rushes in for the hug, thrilled for her. Girlfriends are forever.

  34. Sarah says:

    Awww!!! She looks genuinely thrilled in that video 🙂
    That said, it now seems like having a baby with your BF or GF is like the 1970s version of getting matching ID bracelets.

  35. Case says:

    Congrats to her, but I’m not a fan of how casually she has children with people. When she had her second baby with the Muse guy, I remember reading that she got pregnant very early in their relationship and reacted with, “Wow, this is going to be interesting.” Interesting??? Good grief.

    I’m not a prude — she can support her children and can do whatever she pleases, but it just seems…messy.

  36. sunshine gold says:

    It’s very Hollywood of her. That’s all I’ll say.
