Kate Hudson Clarifies On Claims That She’s Raising Her Daughter Rani ’Genderless’
In the AOL interview which spoke of the 39-year-old actress’s approach to raising her 3-month-old daughter Rose and sons Bingham Hawn, 7, and Ryder Russell, 15, Hudson said “[having a daughter] doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless — like a genderless [approach]. We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as.”
Ten days after the interview was published, Hudson then took to Instagram to clear up any confusion of the comments she made during the interview.
“Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys,” Hudson began. “My response was simple. Not really. The whole click bait tactic of saying I’m raising my daughter to be ‘genderless’ is silly and frankly doesn’t even make sense.”
“I raise and continue to raise my children, both my boys and girl to feel free to be exactly who they want to be,” she continued. “Me saying a ‘genderless approach” was a way of refocusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype.”
“I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big crazy world,” Hudson concluded.
Back in October the How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days star announced the birth of she and her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa’s daughter, Rose, on Instagram.
“She’s here,” Hudson captioned the post.
“We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa. Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor,” Hudson revealed in the post. “Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”
Hudson is currently enjoying being a mother of three as recently she told E! News, “It’s crazy, but I love it. I grew up like that. I think when you grow up with a big family…it could go either way I guess, but for me, I grew up in a big family, I want a big family and I got a big family.”
