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.

Hudson said:

“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.

    A friend (at the time) told me one very important thing about my own daughter – that IF I were to constantly shade her biological father to her ears, she would learn to hate whatever part of her she thought was like him…don’t do it! Sounds like Ms. Hudson is following that trope, to her credit. BTW, that woman wound up leaving her husband (and kids) and he became my second husband…another long, weird story..!

    I agree to never do that; however both parents need to hold up their end of the bargain as well and not behave so obviously violent, aggressive, loud, belligerent, dismissive, illegally etc to bring the negative emphasis upon themselves…. sort of makes it difficult to say anything positive either… so I guess some people just should not be a parent until they are ready to behave appropriately. You bet if someone is displaying awful behaviors where children learn what they live, you must speak that the behavior is wrong… in order to teach the child the correct way to conduct themselves and not think a negative example is correct as that causes the child/ren to have inappropriate role models and in a perfect world the child would not have to be in their presence at least never alone…. and she has seemingly more money than most going through similar settings for their families, I imagine it makes every day to day living that much easier… I , too , only care for all childen to be safe, healthy and happy.
