Kate Hudson has got engaged to her British rock star boyfriend, Matt Bellamy.
The 32-year-old, who is expecting the Muse frontman's baby, revealed the news on a TV show in the US.
Sporting a diamond engagement ring, she admitted to the host of the Today Show: "This is new, I'm engaged, it just happened a week ago. I'm so glad you noticed.
"I haven't really announced it, the announcing thing feels so silly, I'm just waiting for somebody to notice."
The Almost Famous star, whose first husband was Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, the father of her seven-year-old son, Ryder, said the couple had not set a date.
But she said of her fiance: "He's a beautiful man and I'm excited."
She said of the proposal: "It was very sweet, it was very romantic" but added that they would not tie the knot immediately because "we're going to sit in for the baby thing for a little bit...".
Kate has not been told the sex of the couple's child but has been doing "the pendulum test". She said: "It goes in a circle if it's a girl and it usually goes back and forth if it's a boy. It's a circle... it's saying it's a girl."
She added: "She's so nuts in here. It's got the Hawn gene. It's got my mum's (Goldie Hawn's) lineage for sure. It's dancing every day."
In January, Hudson denied she was engaged to Bellamy, following reports that the actress hosted an engagement party for family at a London hotel. She said at the time: "I don't like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don't feel it necessary to get married."
