The actress, who has a 7-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, says having a baby with the Muse front man wasn’t exactly planned but wasn’t prevented either.
“Well, it wasn’t like we didn’t know what we were doing, “Hudson laughs. “There were no ovulation kits involved. We were tempting fate, and it worked.”
The 31-year-old adds, “I didn’t think I was going to have another kid until I was maybe 33 – that was in the back of my mind before I met Matthew. But we were so in love when it happened, it was just so exciting for both of us.”
Hudson met Matthew at the Coachella music festival.
She explains she was “watching Radiohead’s Thom Yorke with a guy I knew from high school, who introduced me to Matthew. We realized we had met a few years earlier, in Australia.
“Then I got distracted and said, ‘I’ve got to find my friends; I don’t know where they went.’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Come on, I’ll take care of you.’ That’s when I went, ‘Wait a minute, who are you?’ ”
The first few outings with Bellamy made her feel they were going to be serious.
In the beginning I felt like, okay, this is going to be heavy. Am I prepared for this? Because it had been a while, and I wasn’t looking for that. But I just couldn’t stay away. I wanted to talk to him and be with him all the time. On our first dates we would take long walks and talk the entire day.”
