Nothing means more to Goldie Hawn than her family!
While recently speaking with People, Goldie explained she was suffering from toxemia — a potentially dangerous pregnancy condition characterized by high blood pressure — when she was taken to the NICU to see her newborn baby boy.
Happy Mother's Day to one of the great ones.. A quiet strength, a relentless resolve, shoulders broad enough to carry the world two times over.. A breezy gait, dancing hands, a crooked smile imperfect and approachable.. Timeless eyes with answers.. My inspiration, my mentor, my muse... my mommy... I looked like John Malcovich as an infant
"Oh my God, was he beautiful. Eleven pounds of a hunk of love. I stood up and I just connected to the universe. I put my hand on him, and I asked God, I said, 'Come through me, use me to heal my son,'" she recalled.
Thankfully, Oliver recovered from his complications and regained his health. "I don’t think there’s any question that prayer can work. I’m a very spiritual person," Goldie said.

"I’m not a religious person, although I was raised Jewish and I like my tribe, but that was a beautiful thing. It was phenomenal. I just emptied myself. I don’t know how to explain it," she continued.
Today, Oliver is 40-years-old and a successful actor like his mom and stepfather, Kurt Russell. He is also married to actress Erinn Bartlett and the couple have three children: sons Wilder, 9, and Bodhi, 7, and daughter Rio, 3.
"He’s the greatest, most handsome, amazing father, actor, comedian, human, son," Goldie said. "I mean, he’s such a gift. They’re all gifts, all my children."
