Actress Kate Hudson has had three beautiful children from different relationships over the years. Most recently, she welcomed a baby girl with her current boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa.
Now, the mother of three is balancing co-parenting responsibilities with the fathers of her two older children, she explained this week on Laura Wasser’s “Divorce Sucks!” podcast.
“As much as I would say I don’t recommend it to most, my situation is quite amazing.”
The mother had her first child, 15-year-old Ryder, with ex-husband Chris Robinson. She was married to the musician for seven years before they divorced in 2007.
Now they work together to make sure they have the same rules when it comes to parenting. Hudson said:
“Chris and I, we’re good. It’s kind of funny too — Ryder really can’t get away with anything.”
Hudson had Bingham, now seven, with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. The two were engaged before they decided to split.
They’ve also figured out the key to co-parenting, she explained:
“Matt and I, we have a great way of talking to each other about Bing and instilling the same rules in the house. We find that to be really important for Bing to feel that there’s no you’re not going to get away with anything in each other’s house. Mommy and Daddy are on the same page.”

Thankfully, the mother of three said they all get along just fine, according to PopSugar:
“They all get along. It’s funny, and we laugh about it. I never thought my life would look like that, but it is what it is. All I care about is happy kids, and we all make that the priority.”
Though Hudson doesn’t always agree with her exes, she never shows any of the negativity in front of her kids.
She explained that it only does harm rather than good. It’s a lesson she picked up from her own mother:
“I think the one thing that I learned from my mom is that no matter what you’re feeling and no matter what — when I see my friends talking sh*t about their ex-spouses in front of their kids, I get so upset because they don’t recognize how much that affects their child and how resentful their child will become of them. No matter what, I never heard a bad word about my father.”
Hudson is currently raising her new baby girl alongside her longtime boyfriend. And it seems having a blended family only serves to make them stronger.
