Fans of Kate Hudson know that she comes from a pretty large – and very tight-knit – Hollywood family, led by beloved couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

However, no family comes without its fair share of complications or even estrangements, and the How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days actress isn't afraid to discuss the ones in her own family.

Through her podcast with brother Oliver Hudson, Sibling Revelry – which is dedicated to conversations with fellow celebrity siblings – the two have explored and opened up about their own relationships with their half siblings.

The longtime couple also share son Wyatt, 37, while Kurt shares son Boston, 43, with Season Hubley. As for Bill, he shares Zachary, 38, and Emily, 42, with Cindy Williams, plus Lalania, 18, with Caroline Graham.

"I had this moment last year where I was like, 'I don't know why I don't talk to my other siblings,'" she explained, adding: "I have two sisters that I don't speak to for no other reason than our family is separated."

"My sister and I and my brother have all just started communicating again," she shared, before revealing: "Honestly, I got on the phone with my sister and we just started bawling our eyes out. It was great. [My sister] even said it, 'We start now. We start now.'"

Kate previously opened up about her decision to reach out to her siblings in another podcast episode in early 2023, in which she told her brother: "You know what I've been thinking about lately? Dad. I've been thinking a lot about Dad," and added: "I've been thinking about our sisters that we don't spend any time with and our brother – brothers.

She noted: "We've been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships, and we're sitting here like, 'We've got the best family, we're so great,' and yet we don't ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings. Four."

"It would be nice to connect a little bit – especially with my sisters," she continued, and ultimately reflected: "So I've been thinking a lot about the Hudsons. Thinking it's important that we reach out with all of our siblings and maybe connect with them a little bit."
