2000 - 2009
Kate Hudson and her first husband Chris Robinson, frontman for The Black Crowes, married in December 2000.
Kate gave birth to son Ryder Russell Robinson four years later, in January 2004. Ryder weighed 8lb 11oz.
In 2006, Kate and Chris divorced due to "irreconcilable differences", papers said at the time.
It was announced in September 2009 that Chris and his new girlfriend were expecting a baby. Ryder, who was nearly 6 at the time, became a big brother to Cheyenne Genevieve Robinson in December that year.
2010 - 2014
In spring 2010, Kate began dating Matthew Bellamy (more commonly known as Matt), British lead singer of Muse.
In January 2011, there was speculation that Kate was pregnant with her second child with boyfriend Matt. The news was confirmed on 13 January by Kate's rep.
"It was not planned, but they are excited and embracing it," a source said at the time.
In February, Kate revealed she was suffering terrible morning sickness.
"I'm pregnant, and I'm really sick. But I couldn't say that because you really want to keep it as quiet as you can for the first trimester," Kate told The Times.
By April 2011, Kate was seven months pregnant and was spotted out with a growing baby bump. She then announced that she had become engaged to Matt, during an interview on The Today Show. No further plans for their wedding have been revealed yet.
Kate and Matt did reveal they were having a baby girl, after using their so-called pendulum test (we of course now know this was wrong!) and Kate even compared being pregnant to being stoned!
"Being pregnant is wonderful. You do get the pregnant mush-brain...it's like getting stoned," Kate told Extra at the time.
Doting dad and fiancee Matt was keen not to let Kate do all the hard work when it came to the birth. "I'll be there with rubber gloves on," he shared with a national newspaper.
Matt and Kate decided to have their baby in LA so their child could get dual US and UK citizenship. The couple plan to live in both countries and fly back and forth.
Heavily pregnant Kate didn't shy away from the cameras during her pregnancy and even graced the red carpet wearing a gorgeous black maternity gown and nude Christian Louboutin peep toe heels.
The Hollywood actress gave birth to a baby boy, who weighed 7lb 12oz, on 9 July 2011. "Mum and baby are strong and healthy. Mum was a worrier, Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!" the excited dad tweeted.
The couple asked friends and family to celebrate the arrival of their new baby son by planting trees. However Kate and Matt kept quiet about their newborn's name for a few days.
Four days after the birth, Matt announced via Twitter their newborn's name, Bingham 'Bing' Hawn Bellamy, after members of both their families.
For Kate's first red carpet experience post-birth, she went against other celebs and their one-time-only dresses and re-wore her black maternity dress. How refreshing to see a celeb mum work her pregnancy wardrobe after birth!
In August, proud dad Matt posted an intimate image on Twitter of his bride-to-be and their 1-month-old son, Bingham. He captioned the shot "Family life!".
Kate and Matt were also spotted in a North London cafe sneaking kisses with each other while baby Bingham slept in his Missoni special edition Bugaboo Cameleon.
Not only do Bingham and Ryder have doting parents, they are lucky to have fab grandparents, too. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell couldn't wait for their daughter to have babies and have said on numerous occasions how extremely happy they are for her.
In December 2014, the couple called off their engagement.
2015 - 2017
In 2015, she told Allure magazine that she and Muse rocker Matt had "different visions" for their lives together, and that was the reason for the split. Matt has since been quoted saying it was "for the best".
As of December 2016, Kate and Matt continue to co-parent their son and were said to be continuing their tradition of spending the Christmas holidays as a family in Aspen.
Matt was joined by his model girlfriend Elle Evans for the trip, according to E! News.
Around the same time, Kate began dating Danny Fujikawa, a guitarist she'd known since she was 23 and pregnant with her 1st child, Ryder.
On their 1 year anniversary, in December 2017, Kate gushed:
"The first time I met Danny I was 23 and enormously pregnant with Ryder. His step sisters are my best friends @sarafoster@erinfoster and so it goes we have been in the same circle for over a decade!
"A year ago today Danny took me on a hike and what I thought was just a hike with a family friend turned very quickly into an unexpected first date.
"No moves were made on this first date. In fact, it took months for him to make a first move!
"And as a kiss on this bridge would have been nice, the kiss a year later was so much sweeter.
"So on our 15th year of knowing each other we were able to open our hearts to each other to feel so much pure love and it’s been truly incredible.! ❤️
"Happy first date anniversary baby. #LoveThisMan ? #WhatAYear"
2018 - Kate's pregnant!
In early 2018, Kate's army of Insta fans were getting a little bit suspicious. Their idol seemed to be MIA. But all became clear on 7 April 2018, when Kate revealed she was expecting her 3rd child.
"SURPRISE!!! ?" she wrote alongside her gorgeous baby bump AND 'gender reveal' video. "If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick!"
As it happens, Kate's early pregnancy symptoms included a lot of screen-related nausea...
"It was the most sick first trimester of all my children. Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been.
"If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing...I was lying!
"BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap. We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now!
"And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it!
"My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way ?"
