“You know, I’ve got multiple dads, I’ve got kids all over the place,” Kate told ‘Sunday Today’.

She spoke of her 2-year-old Rani Rose who she shares with her partner Danny Fujikawa, 9-year-old Bingham who she had with her ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy, and 17-year-old Ryder whose father is her ex-husband Chris Robinson.

Kate talked about how important it is for her to be a good parent. “The only expectations I really have that are really high in my life is with my kids,” she said. “And with like family stuff. Other than that, it’s like, I just let it go. I work my ass off and then I walk away and I hope for the best.”

Kate Hudson also opened up about her relationship with her father

In an interview, the 41-year old actress also opened up about growing up distant from her dad, musician and actor Bill Hudson. Instead, she and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised by mother Goldie Hawn and her longtime partner Kurt Russek. “I have a beautiful mother. I have a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in our life,” she said. “But it doesn’t take away from the fact that we didn’t know our dad.”

The fact that she “didn’t know” her dad, is what has made her desire to be a good so strong. “I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common,” she said. “I think it’s important for people to talk about that. If they can’t reconnect or if it’s too challenging, that it’s OK, right?”

She added that the feelings surrounding her father are not a new revelation but “a 41-year-old issue.”

She continued, “I think as I’ve sort of gone through that process … I kind of look at my dad and I’m, like, ‘You know, the love has never ever gone anywhere. It’s always been there, no matter what those complications have been.’ And healing is … personal, and I think people sometimes just need to hear that they’re not alone in that.”

Kate Hudson also talked about how difficult it has been to play the role of a stay-at-home mom, with three children, all from different dads. “I never thought in a million years that I’d spend a year in one place,” Kate explained. “When you have so many kids, sometimes you have those moments where you’re hiding in your bathroom going, ‘Please, please, get me out of here!'”

But then Kate concludes, how important it is to stay safe and to do the bare minimum. “I just remind myself there’s a lot of people out there who have lost their loved ones, and we just gotta stay in for a bit.”
