Kate Hudson reflected on amicably co-parenting her three children with their three different fathers. The 43-year-old actress shares son Ryder, 18, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, son Bingham, 11, with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy, and daughter Rani Rose, 4, with fiancé Danny Fujikawa, opened up about her blended family in an interview with The Sunday Times.

“It might not look traditional from the outside, but on the inside, I feel like we’re killing it,” the “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” star told the outlet. She continued, “The unit that I’ve created with three children with three different fathers is a seriously strong unit, and it’s ours.” Hudson continued, “I’m not interested in forcing some conventional idea of love or marriage. I’d like to be able to grow intimately with my partner for a long time, but I also don’t have rose-colored glasses on.”

“My goal in life is that I want to feel love, and I want to give love, but I’m also practical, so, one day at a time,” Hudson added. “I work really hard at relationships because I like them.”

“My parents have done an amazing job of continuing that dance,” the Academy Award nominee noted. Hudson was referring to her mother, Goldie Hawn, 77, and her partner of 39 years, Kurt Russell, 71. Though Hudson is the biological daughter of Hawn and musician Bill Hudson, 73, the “Fool’s Good” actress has said that she considers Russell to be her father.

Hudson famously moved in with Robinson, 55, just a few days after they met in May 2000. The couple tied the knot on New Year’s Eve that year, and Hudson gave birth to Ryder in 2004. However, the two separated in November 2006 and finalized their divorce in October 2007.

In her interview with the Times, Hudson shared her thoughts on how she has approached parenting differently since welcoming her firstborn with The Black Crowes founder when she was 24. “I’m definitely more present as a mother now that I’m older,” the Los Angeles native said. “With Ryder, our relationship is so special because I grew up with him. The big learning period of my life and becoming a woman happened as I was being a mother.”

She continued, “It was a choice. We wanted to have a baby, and it felt instinctual. I was very attached to him and vice versa. I took him everywhere. I didn’t leave him until he was two. I didn’t even really put him in school until he was ten, whereas I’m far more structured with my other kids. When Ryder got older, I [realized] a little more structure might be good for the kid.”

The Fabletics founder shared that her eldest is “in college and very happy,” adding, “Chris and I just need to check in once in a while.” Hudson and Bellamy, 44, began dating in 2010 after meeting at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. The two revealed that they were engaged in April 2011 and welcomed Bingham “Bing” in July that year. In December 2014, the actress and the Muse frontman announced they had called off their engagement. However, they have remained on good terms since ending their romance.
