Kate Hudson: “Ryder & Bing Are Polar Opposites”

Mom-of-two Kate Hudson graces the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and opens up for one of the first times about Bingham, her 15-month-old little boy with fiancé Matt Bellamy. The actress, 33, also talks about 8-year-old son Ryder and her good pal Gwyneth Paltrow.

On her boys: “Ryder and Bing are polar opposites. In order to get a smile out of Ryder, you had to work really hard when he was a baby. Bing is just smiling–he’s happy, he’s joyous. Ryder, I knew he was going to be an artist. But Ryder is comfortable in his own skin.”

On her pregnancies: “Bing was a more difficult pregnancy than Ryder . . .With Bing I was really nauseous. He also moved around so much that I felt like I was in Aliens. He was just rockin’ out.”

On having Ryder at a young age: “I had Ryder at 24 so, you know, a lot happened in my 20s. I was working a lot, and there were times that were extremely tumultuous. So 30 kind of felt like ‘Oh, okay.’ I had a different kind of confidence.”

On her pal Gwyneth Paltrow: “She’s been my go-to about where to get things done—grocery shopping, a good mani-pedi, you know, all that. I look up to Gwyneth and how she has been in her life. She’s the real deal.”

    Hmmm…I wonder if she regrets telling the world that she was having a girl? I saw a recent picture of her and Bing and she just looked miserable. I know she loves her baby but she looked more happier thinking that she was pregnant with a girl than she does walking down the street with Bing. Anyway, I am glad to finally here her talk about him he’s precious.

      So you know that the reason she looked miserable was that she said more than a year ago that she was having a girl… Not that her tummy hurt, not that she was tired, not that she argued with her mother that day…

      No you saw her and you knew it was because of that comment she made so long ago no one rembember it…

      you get all of that from just one photo…im sure having a healthy strong baby boy, more than a year ago i might add, is not what made her look unhappy in that one millisecond of her life.
