The Hollywood stars have often been candid

Kate and Oliver Hudson's comments on their biological father Bill Hudson

While Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are a legendary Hollywood couple, one quickly approaching a relationship milestone, two of the kids they share, Goldie's oldest Kate and Oliver Hudson, have developed just a strong a bond with their "Pa."

However, from time to time, the two actors have brought up their biological father, Bill Hudson, and on the coming anniversary, it's sure to bring up memories of their dad.

The singer, one of the trio The Hudson Brothers, was married to Goldie from 1976 to 1980, after which he filed for divorce, and soon after left the family. He did remarry, tying the knot with Laverne & Shirley star Cindy Williams, who passed away on Monday.

For a long time after Goldie and Bill's separation, the relationship between the dad and his children was strained. Since then, however, it has improved, with Oliver even acknowledging in 2018 that he had exchanged "some texts" with his estranged father.

Kate didn't keep in touch as much, however she did say in a 2016 interview with Howard Stern: "I really do recognize whatever those issues are, it’s just something that he has to live with, and that must be painful for him, so I forgive him."

Bill has three children from other relationships, while their Pa Kurt has a son, Boston, and the Hudson siblings mused over them in a recent episode of their podcast Sibling Revelry.

"I was thinking - I've been thinking a lot about Dad," Kate shared. "I've been thinking about our sisters that we don't spend any time with, and our brother. Brothers. We've got four siblings we don't spend any time with.

"We've been talking so much about sibling relationships, and distraught relationships," she said. "And yet, we don't ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings - four.

Oliver, meanwhile, did pay homage to his biological father on Father's Day in 2021, sharing an image of him alongside one of Kurt and one, comically enough, of Warren Beatty.

He wrote: "It doesn't really matter which one of these men is my father. My Pa stepped in when I was 6 and made the man I am today.
