Kate Hudson Breastfeeds Mid-Workout After Clarifying Comment About Raising Her Daughter Genderless
But that didn’t stop the mother of three from getting back into the action.
Kate Hudson is taking “fit mom” to a whole new level.
Just hours after she set the record straight about what she meant in saying she takes a “genderless” approach when it comes to parenting, Hudson was captured working out while breastfeeding her 3-month-old daughter, Rani Rose.
Shared on pal Erin Foster‘s Instagram Stories — who is also the stepsister of Hudson’s boyfriend Danny Fujikawa — the actress, 39, was seen doing her at-home workout with MIRROR before needing to feed her daughter.
But that didn’t stop the mother of three, who wore black leggings and an athletic purple turtleneck crop top with sneakers, from quickly getting back into the action.
Captioning the next clip with “Motherhood doesn’t slow us down,” Foster, 36, recorded Hudson happily doing leg lifts, squats, and static lunges — all while holding Rani in her arms as the baby breastfed.
The sweet mother-daughter fitness moment comes almost two weeks after Hudson’s AOL interview, in which the star spoke about parenting her three kids: Rani plus her two sons Bingham Hawn, 7½, and Ryder Russell, 15.
In her interview, Hudson originally told AOL, “[Having a daughter] doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference,” she shared with the outlet. “I think you just raise your kids individually regardless — like a genderless [approach]. We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as.”
Earlier on Monday, Hudson shared a message on Instagram to clear up any confusion about her previous comments.
“Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys,” Hudson began in her note. “My response was simple. Not really. The whole click bait tactic of saying I’m raising my daughter to be ‘genderless’ is silly and frankly doesn’t even make sense.”
Hudson went on in her Instagram post — which she disabled comments on — to say her aim is to “raise and continue to raise” both her sons and daughter “to feel free to be exactly who they want to be. To feel confident in their life choices and feel loved and supported no matter what.”
“Me saying a ‘genderless approach’ was a way of refocusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype,” she continued. “It just felt a little antiquated to me. Not all girls want to be a princess, some want to be king. And that’s fine by me.”
Hudson explained that she understands some may “want to take the headline earnestly as if I have some new age method of raising my kids and I really do hate disappointing people but, I don’t.”
“I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big crazy world,” the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star added.
“If they grow up and identify with something different than what others want to identify them as … Mama’s cool with it!” she wrote. “I keep it simple cause we all know raising kids is anything but!”
“Happy Monday,” the actress ended her note, adding a red heart emoji and signing off with, “Much love, Kate.”
