Kate Hudson says she and Matt Bellamy have become better parents since their split. The former couple have remained on good terms after calling off their engagement in 2014, and Kate says it has benefitted their four-year-old son Bingham.

Speaking to Red magazine, Kate explained: "I do believe that it is better to have two people as parents that are truly happy in themselves for [the sake of] their children. If they can't sustain that at home and if it's affecting their family, then they have to look at their relationship.

"Of course, the goal is always to stay together. Matt and I really worked on it together and we came to the point where we realised that we are really better as friends and that is a healthier approach for our kids. And we can see the results."

Following the split Matt has moved on with model Elle Evans, while Kate has most recently been linked to Nick Jonas. The 36-year-old said she gets frustrated with the scrutiny surrounding their friendship, claiming it's different for men and women.

Kate Hudson said she and Matt Bellamy are better off as friends

"The media scrutinises all single women in the public eye. You cannot have a conversation with a man without being attached to them," she said. "One: can women not be friends with men? Two: are they implying that a single woman is constantly looking to be in a relationship or is in need of a man? You don't get that with men."

Nick has done nothing to dispel the rumours about their relationship, telling Complex magazine that the actress is "incredible".

"We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful."

Out of respect for Kate he said wouldn’t discuss whether they have a physical relationship, but he added: "We did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She's amazing."
