One day you’re rocking them to sleep, the next you’re out partying with them — at least that’s how Kate Hudson is thinking when it comes to son Ryder.
The 39-year-old recently filmed an interview for The Rachel Ray Show, which will air in full on April 22, and revealed that her 15-year-old son is growing right before her eyes — so much so that she’s ready to go out drinking with him. “He’s almost 6 feet [tall],” the actress told the host, 50. “I used to dream about that day, like, ‘One day, honey, I’m going to be looking up to you.’ And the other day, he gave me a hug and I almost burst into tears. It’s crazy, it’s amazing, it’s beautiful.”
“People kind of go, ‘I want to freeze them when they’re little.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t, actually.’ I’m having a blast,” she continued. “I can’t wait to go to a bar with my kid — is that weird? He’s so much fun!”
Ryder is Kate’s oldest, and she shares him with ex-husband (and former The Black Crowes frontman) Chris Robinson. The Almost Famous star also shares 7-year-old Bingham with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy (lead singer of The Muse) and is currently raising her third child, Rani Rose, 6 months, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa. Goldie Hawn‘s daughter once discussed what it is like to coparent with her kids’ three different dads, calling the situation “quite amazing.”
“When you get divorced, you’re still in a relationship. It’s just a different kind of relationship,” Kate said during an interview on “Divorce Sucks! with Laura Wasser.” “You’re going to have good days, you’re going to have bad days, you’re going to have good weeks, bad weeks.” She also added that it is “just communication” that keeps her family running smoothly. Kate also acknowledged the idea that her mother, 73, passed down to her about never speaking badly about your exes in front of your children.
“Kids are not only incredibly intelligent, but eventually they can make their mind up themselves,” she said. “They will see with their own eyes whatever needs to be seen and they need to come to that on their own terms. It’s not our place to tell them how to feel about the other parents. I think that’s so important.”
