In October 2018 Kate Hudson gave birth to her first child with partner Danny Fujikawa. And the Hollywood star, who already has two sons from previous relationships, opted for a name with a very touching meaning. Here’s the story behind her unusual choice.
Born in Los Angeles in 1979, Kate Hudson is the progeny of Bill Hudson and Hollywood legend Goldie Hawn. Following her biological parents’ divorce, though, she and her actor brother, Oliver, were raised by Hawn and her long-term partner, Kurt Russell. And after graduating from college prep school Crossroads in Santa Monica, California, Hudson decided to follow in her acting family’s footsteps.
Hudson actually made her big-screen debut in 1998’s Desert Blue. This preceded appearances in 1999’s 200 Cigarettes and 2000’s Gossip, Dr. T & the Woman and About Adam. But her big break came after her performance as a seasoned groupie in Almost Famous. Hudson even picked up an Oscar nod and a Golden Globe for her supporting turn in the Cameron Crowe-directed comedy drama.
