Seeing pink! Kate Hudson gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.
“She’s here 💕,” Hudson wrote on Instagram. “We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa. Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor. Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”
The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress, 39, announced she was expecting a daughter with Fujikawa in a gender reveal Instagram video in April. “SURPRISE!!!” she captioned the post, which took many fans by surprise. “If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the most sick first trimester of all my children.”
Hudson continued: “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.”
Hudson and Fujikawa began dating in December 2016, though the pair knew each other for 15 years before things turned romantic. The actress recounted their love story while celebrating her one-year anniversary with her musician beau in December 2017. “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!” she explained on Instagram. “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.”
A source told Us Weekly exclusively in April that the Fabletics cofounder was thrilled to be expecting her first daughter: “Kate and Danny are over-the-moon ecstatic. Kate has had the baby itch and wanted a girl more than anything.”
“Once she met Danny she just knew that she wanted a baby with him and hoped and prayed that it would happen. For it to be a girl is just the icing on the cake,” the insider added. “Danny is so good with kids and has been great with her boys.”
Hudson took time off in the months leading up to her little one’s arrival. The Bride Wars star, Fujikawa, mom Goldie Hawn, stepfather Kurt Russell, brother Oliver Hudson and her sons traveled to Mykonos in June, where the Pretty Happy author showed off her burgeoning baby bump.
