Dressed in Balenciaga, Dior, Miu Miu and Nina Ricci, Kate Hudson graces the May cover of Elle U.K. and shares her thoughts on marrying British beau Matthew Bellamy, her sons Ryder, 9, and 21-month-old Bing, and eating clean.
On family life: “I’m a lot less a rock chick and a lot more about being a good mother, a good partner. I’m part of a family. That’s how we were brought up, how I bring my kids up. They are very blessed to live how they do but they are aware of that.”
On getting married: “We will get married. I do think it’s important but we have no plans. He [Ryder] wants a party. For me it’s not the legal part that is important, it’s what it means to the family.” On their romance, she said, “[I]t was all very old-fashioned and proper and we went on lovely dates [after meeting at Coachella music festival]. And two months later I was pregnant.”
On finding out she was pregnant with Bing: “Well, yes [I was shocked], but I also thought: ‘This is going to be interesting. 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. When you get pregnant everything changes; you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision.”
On eating clean: “I am now [after Ryder’s birth] a human calorie app. I’ve learnt about nutrition and how it works, and I eat incredibly well now…I don’t believe in diets, I think the whole concept should be banned.”View Slideshow »»
