Coparenting can be an emotionally fraught proposition … unless you’re Kate Hudson. The 39-year-old has three children with three different men, but she says her coparenting relationships with her exes have been smooth.
“As much as I would say I don’t recommend it to most, my situation is quite amazing,” Hudson revealed on Laura Wasser’s “Divorce Sucks!” podcast on Monday, March 4. “I was very lucky to have partners in my life — and every one was a different circumstance — that we were able to figure it out.”
The Marshall actress shares son Ryder, 15, with ex-husband Chris Robinson and son Bingham, 7, with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy. She and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa welcomed daughter Rani, 5 months, in October 2018.
“I do feel that when you get divorced, you know, you’re still in a relationship,” she said on the podcast. “It’s just a different kind of relationship. You know, you’re going to have good days, you’re going to have bad days. You’re going to have good weeks, bad weeks.”
Hudson explained to Wasser that she stays in touch with her exes over text, email and phone. “It just goes in spurts,” she said of her communication with Robinson, 52, and Bellamy, 40. “I personally prefer a laid-back approach, but sometimes when you’re laid-back, things can get confused. … I think you just have to be super-structured.”
She also praised both Robinson and Bellamy for staying in their kids’ lives, despite hectic music careers. Robinson previously fronted the band Black Crowes and now performs with the band As the Crow Flies; Bellamy is the lead singer of Muse.
“We’ve got a lot of busy schedules in our family,” Hudson said. “I don’t know how I figured it out, but it just really works out for our family. Chris is on the road a lot, and Matt is on the road a lot, but they’re really present fathers.”
The Oscar-nominated actress was married to Robinson from 2000 to 2007 and in a relationship with Bellamy from 2010 to 2014. She has been dating Fujikawa since 2017.
