Don’t be fooled by the sheet. Kate Hudson was nine months preggers when she posed for this spread in the September issue of Elle magazine. And as she rolled around, showcasing assorted baubles and jewels, she definitely had impending motherhood on her brain. “[My mom, Goldie Hawn] never hands out unsolicited preachy words of wisdom,” said Kate. “My parents allowed my brother and I to have our freedom and be ourselves and feel confident in our choices and to make mistakes without too much judgment. I hope that I can do as good a job.” [Elle]

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy have finally decided on a name for their newborn son — Bingham Hawn Bellamy! “Bing” for short, naturally. I’m suddenly nostalgic for the days when we thought it was strange that Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter after a piece of fruit. I suppose Bing isn’t as strange a name as, say, “Pilot Inspektor” (that’s the name of Jason Lee’s kid), and there are famous Bings in the world, like Bing Crosby. I love that his middle name is in honor of his Grandma Goldie. Bingham … Bing Hawn Bellamy … I’m warming up to it. Thank god. Anyway, little factoid for the new parents — the URL “Bing.com” is already taken. Bummer. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
The celebrity stork had a pretty darn busy weekend. Two highly anticipated famous babes arrived within hours of each other—Victoria and David Beckham gave birth to a baby girl, while Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy had a baby boy. While we don’t know much about Kate and Matt’s baby, besides the fact that he is healthy, Posh and Becks were willing to divulge a little more information. Their babe was born early Sunday morning and the two said they were “over the moon” to finally have a girl, after three boys. They also announced their baby’s name—Harper Seven Beckham—leading many to speculate whether they named their wee one after Harper Lee of To Kill A Mockingbird fame or after the magazine Harper’s Bazaar.
Regardless, I think Victoria, David, Kate, and Matthew should take the simultaneous arrival of their little bundles of joy as a sign. Keep reading »
Of all the lady mags, I tend to find the stories in Marie Claire to be the most informative, well-written, and thought-provoking. Celebrity interviews, of course, are a bit of a crapshoot; for every Lady Gaga (who will give amazing, ridiculous quote after amazing, ridiculous quote) there’s a Katie Holmes (who repeats canned answers that were clearly rehearsed over and over with a publicist in advance). Then there are all the celebrities who give interviews somewhere in the middle, sometimes interesting, sometimes not so much, often due to the types of questions posed by the interviewer. (Ask a celeb a boring question, you’ll probably get a boring answer.) For that reason, i wasn’t expecting much when I sat down to read the Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin cover story in the June issue of Marie Claire.
But I certainly didn’t expect six paragraphs devoted to discussing the stars’ weight. Keep reading »
“It’s weird to say fiance to me, I like baby daddy … So he’ll be baby daddy until he’s hubby.”
—Kate Hudson on what she calls her soon-to-be husband, Matt Bellamy. Begrudgingly, I find this cute. It’s nice to see a woman who has a sense of humor about her shotgun wedding. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Last night, a super pregnant Kate Hudson sat down with David Letterman to talk about her new movie “Something Borrowed,” her new engagement to Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, and the fact that she’ll be giving birth for the second time in just a few weeks. “I don’t feel prepared. I can’t believe how fast it’s gone,” she said. “I might be one of those who is sitting in the hospital, staring, going ‘I don’t know what to name my child!’”
But the best part of the interview was when she talked about Matthew. Keep reading »
Another famous Kate has a wedding coming up: Kate Hudson is engaged! Kate announced this morning on “The Today Show” that she’s engaged to Matt Bellamy of Muse, by whom she is currently pregnant (and mush-brained). “Yes, I’m engaged,” Kate told Matt Lauer while promoting her new romantic comedy, “Something Borrowed.” “It just happened a week ago, I’m so glad you noticed. I haven’t really announced it and I felt like the announcing thing feels so silly, and I was just waiting for someone to notice.” Well, that’s one way to do it. Us common folk take out an announcement in the newspaper when we have an engagement, but I guess if you’re a celebrity, it’s easier to just announce it on a morning talk show. Anyway, congratulations, Kate Hudson! [Betty Confidential]
UPDATE: Incredibly important close up of her ring now included! Keep reading »
“Being pregnant is wonderful. You do get the pregnant mush-brain … you know what it’s like? It’s like getting stoned.”
– Kate Hudson on being pregnant with her second child. I suspect Kate knows a thing or two about getting stoned. Frisky readers — who’ve been pregs — do you agree with Kate’s assertion that having a bun in the oven makes you feel, ahem, baked? [Dlisted] Keep reading »
