Kate Hudson Says She Is Raising Her Daughter ‘Genderless’

Jun 08, 2021 by apost team

Kate Hudson belongs to one of Hollywood's favorite families — her mom is actress Goldie Hawn while her stepdad is Kurt Russell. The couple has been together since 1983 after initially meeting in 1966 while filming together. However, they reconnected on the set of their film "Swing Shift," and have been inseparable ever since, even going on to star in further movies together after becoming romantically involved. However, the couple never chose to get married. 

They each brought children to their partnership, Hawn with Oliver and Kate Hudson, and Russell with Boston Russell, who he shares with ex-wife Season Hubley. Together, the couple shares son Wyatt Russell. With many of the kids following their parents into acting, the showbiz family is often seen supporting each other at premieres or spending quality time together, some of which they share on social media. 

But one noticeable thing about the family is that Hawn and daughter Kate are the only two women among a sea of men. This has probably only made them closer, as their relationship is a very tight one, with the mother and daughter often appearing together in interviews.

Furthermore, there are simply some things that only a mother and daughter can understand. And Kate, who has three children of her own, is finally having that experience for herself, as her third child is a little girl, 2-year-old Rani Rose, who she shares with filmmaker Danny Fujikawa.

Kate Hudson is an incredibly well-known actress, but she's also a mom to three children and definitely knows the importance of family. All different ages, her kids include her eldest child Ryder, who is 17 and whose father is rock musician Chris Robinson. Bingham, her second child, is 9 years old and his dad is another rock musician, Matt Bellamy of the band Muse. And finally, Kate's third child is daughter Rani Rose, 2, who she shares with filmmaker Danny Fujikawa

Hudson's own childhood is an inspiration and guide for how she wants to raise her daughter. E! News reported that Hudson said, "My whole life has been boys. I have three brothers, I have two sons, I have two nephews, and one beautiful little niece. It's really been me and Mommy with a whole bunch of boys," She added about having a daughter, "I'm excited about the balance. I was excited for my boys as I am for my girl, but at least now, if I have another baby, it really won't matter what the gender is at all. At least I have one girl!"

However, when it comes to raising her daughter, she has said that she wants to give her all the space to grow up however she would like. In an interview with AOL, the star talked about her approach to raising a girl.

“There’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless - like a genderless [approach].We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as. I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way.”

The actress admitted that she likes buying clothes for her baby girl. “It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes,” she said. However, the star contended that some outfits are a little ridiculous to subject her daughter to. “There’s some stuff [kid’s clothes] that I’m like, “I can’t do that to her, because it’s so over-the-top.”

Her comments about raising her daughter genderless led to some criticism from people, and this led to her clarifying her comment later in an Instagram post. She wrote, "Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys. My response was simple. Not really. This whole click bait [sic] tactic of saying I'm raising my daughter to be 'genderless' is silly and frankly doesn't even make sense." 

She continued, "I raise and will continue to raise my children, both my boys and girl, to feel free to be exactly who they want to be. To feel confident in their life choices and feel loved and supported no matter what. Me saying a 'genderless approach' was a way of re-focusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype."

Hudson is not the first Hollywood celebrity to jump on the bandwagon of genderless parenting. Singer Pink, actress Angelina Jolie, and musician Adele have also embraced this parenting philosophy.

Essentially, Adele's comment about raising her son Angelo sum up what most parents who raise their children with this approach think: "Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what."
