Kate, 38, also has a second son, with Muse singer Matt Bellamy. In 2016, the Hollywood beauty wrote about her guilt for being a working single mother in an powerful essay for InStyle magazine. "Sometimes I feel like a bad mum," she shared. "Some days I feel like I should win best mum of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children."

Kate, who first became a parent at the age of 25 when she welcomed Ryder, went on to open up about the conflict between being at home with her children, and working on films shoots to build on her career. "Even though every primal ounce of the nurturing, domestic woman in me gets pulled, I'm a hunter as well," she added. "And I love to hunt! And as a woman I feel that somehow we are supposed to feel apologetic about wanting both."
