Kate Hudson has revealed how pregnancy altered her relationship with fiancé Matthew Bellamy and why she believes demonstrating devotion to family is more important than signing a marriage licence.
The 33-year-old American actress and mother-of-two is currently engaged to wed Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy.
Kate shares nine-year-old son Ryder with her ex-husband, Black Crowes rocker Chris Robinson, and 21-month-old son Bingham with Matthew.
When she told Matthew she was pregnant their lives were altered forever.
“I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it. You know that with a relationship things can go either way when you have a child,” Kate revealed in the May issue of Elle UK. “When you get pregnant everything changes: you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision. But he was there and that was that.”
Kate and Matthew have enjoyed a nearly two-year engagement and there is no rush to walk down the aisle.
Kate is inspired by her mother Goldie Hawn’s three-decade long relationship with actor Kurt Russell and she aspires to establish a similar non-traditional family life with Matthew.
“We will get married. I do think it’s important, but we have no plans. [Ryder] wants a party. For me it’s not the legal part that is important, it’s what it means to the family,” Kate explained.
“When I was a kid, my brothers and sisters and I wanted my parents to get married. We ended up with something far more powerful. We were all together at home, Dad gave Mum a ring and said some beautiful words. It was their own version of the ceremony and I remember it so well. It was like it was about us. The family was the glue.”
Kate and Matthew became engaged in April 2011.
