Kate Hudson would like to clear a few things up.

Yes, as first reported by Us Weekly, she's expecting -- but no, she's not engaged to the baby's dad, beau Matt Bellamy, despite recent reports.

Hudson, 31, opened up for the very first time about her pregnancy on British chat program the Graham Norton Show Friday, according the Daily Mail.

"I'm just starting to pop!" Hudson said, holding her expanding belly. The Oscar nominee was mum on potential names for her unborn child with the Muse frontman, 32.

"We have a couple of names, but we're not telling anyone," she teased. As for the baby's gender, "It feels like a girl, but I don't know," the star said. Her son Ryder, 7, "Thinks it's a girl." (Ryder's dad is her ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes.)

As for widely-spread rumors that she and Bellamy, her beau of about 9 months, are now engaged?

"No, no, not that I know of! I don't like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don't feel it necessary to get married," Hudson protested.

She explained: "I am 31, I already have one child, and have had one divorce, so it is not necessarily the golden ticket. I just want to be happy."

For now, the parents-to-be are celebrating in London with Hudson's famous mom Goldie Hawn, and Hawn's longtime partner Kurt Russell.

Hawn, 65, gushed to UsMagazine.com over the weekend about her upcoming new grandchild. "I'm excited! It's exciting! You know, we're just all very happy... happy for them both. What's more to say?"
