Kate Hudson has been having children her "entire adult life" – but she hasn't ruled out welcoming a fourth baby to her brood.

The Almost Famous actress, 45, is already a proud parent to sons Ryder, 20, and Bingham, 12, and four-year-old daughter Rani, who she welcomed with fiancé Danny Fujikawa in 2018.

Kate is bubbling over with joy in her happy relationship with Danny, whom she started dating in 2016 and got engaged to in September 2021. See what she's said about expanding her family with her fiancé ...

Kate's children have three different fathers. Her oldest, Ryder, was born through her marriage to rocker, Chris Robinson. The actress was engaged to Bingham's dad, Muse musician, Matt Bellamy, and Rani is Kate’s daughter with fiance, Danny Fujikawa.

Kate opened up about co-parenting with her exes, describing her family as a "strong unit."

“Matt is so wonderful – I couldn’t have asked for a better co-parent,” she said during an interview with The Sunday Times. “For me it’s like, you loved this person. That doesn’t just go away, but you can re-establish a different kind of love. You can have an amazing time with an ex-partner because you’re really only focused on the love of your child. It might not look traditional from the outside, but on the inside I feel like we’re killing it. The unit that I’ve created with three children with three different fathers is a seriously strong unit, and it’s ours.”

The actress surprised fans when she announced her pregnancy with her youngest child in 2018, admitting that she had been "lying" during public appearances. "If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing...I was lying!" she began, adding: "We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! 

"And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way."

Wanting another baby

In 2022, Kate admitted that she doesn't think she's done having children. "I've been having children my entire adult life," she told Byrdie's After Dark issue. "I've got my 4-year-old and I've got a kid in college. And I don't even know if I'm done yet. You know, I don't have that answer yet."

Meanwhile, she teased a baby could be on the cards in the future when she took part in a TikTok filter that randomized what users "need." It landed on its suggestion for her: "You need a baby," leading to Kate looking shocked and placing a palm to her face, before clarifying the caption: "Not an announcement."

It's not the first time the Fabletics founder has spoken of the possibility of having another child. In 2019, she admitted she thought she'd hung up her pregnancy shoes until Danny came along.

"At one point I was like, 'Oh, maybe I’m done,'" she revealed on Today. "And then I met Danny and was like, 'Alright, I got to pump them out for him.'" Although she didn't have a plan - and perhaps still doesn't - at the time she confessed: "He needs a boy. He needs his own boy."

How many children does Kate Hudson want?

She's the first to admit she saw herself as a mom of many and said during an interview on the Today show: "I always thought I’d have four to six kids. That was like, when I was really little, I thought that. When you come from a big family… you either don't want kids or you want a lot of kids. So I always thought I'd have [more kids]."

 Timing her pregnancies

Kate said she wasn't sure if she was done with having kids during an interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2020. So when would be the ideal time for her to get pregnant again? 

At the time she said: "Right now, Rani's in that place where you're like, 'I want another baby'. But once she gets like four, five, you're like, 'I feel like my life is kinda back a little bit. They're kind of in a groove.' There's, like, a window."

In competition with her brother Oliver Hudson

Another reason she may just have to have one more… to beat her brother, Oliver Hudson, who also has three children. Kate has said that her competitive streak between her and her older sibling makes the prospect of another child even more appealing.

Again, talking to Ellen she was asked if the brother-sister duo would each keep on having children with their respective partners until one of them "wins and Kate quipped: "I have a feeling I’m probably going to end up winning."
