Goldie Hawn's family are incredibly close and her long-term partner Kurt Russell is a huge father figure to her oldest two children, Oliver and Kate Hudson

And Kate made sure her stepfather knew just how important he was not only to her, but his grandchildren too, as she shared a never-before-seen photo to mark Father's Day on Sunday. 

The Music actress took to Instagram to share a lovely photo of Kurt on his birthday back in March, as his grandchildren, including Kate's daughter Rani, three, and son Bingham, 11, Oliver Hudson's children Wilder, 15, Bodhi, 13, and Rio, nine, gathered around him.

Oliver was also in the photo, which also featured a green birthday cake - paying tribute to Kurt's birthday, which falls on St Patrick's Day. 

"Oh how we love you Pa! The happiest Father’s Day to one amazing man! I love you!" Kate wrote in the caption. Fans were quick to comment on the post, with one writing: "What a lovely family photo!" while another wrote: "This is everything." A third added: "What a beautiful photo."

More recently in 2021, Kate spoke about their father on her and Oliver's podcast, Sibling Revelry. Speaking with her brother as the two spoke about different family dynamics, she admitted: "You know what I've been thinking about lately? Dad. I've been thinking a lot about Dad."

Kate and Kurt have a very close bond

She explained: "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, 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," she said.

Kate further detailed that as everyone got older, she felt more inclined to reconnect with them, saying: "It would be nice to connect a little bit – especially with my sisters."

"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," she reflected.

Kate's mom has been with Kurt since 1983 and is often asked about marriage and had the perfect response while appearing on ITV's Loose Women back in 2015.

The Overboard actress explained: "I would have been long divorced if I’d been married. Marriage is an interesting psychological thing. If you need to feel bound to someone, then it's important to be married.

"If you have independence, if you have enough money and sense of independence and you like your independence, there’s something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other. 

"For me, I chose to stay. Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice."
