Kate Hudson Covers Elle UK Magazine May 2013

Kate Hudson covers the May issue of Elle UK Magazine and inside her interview with the mag she chats about her second pregnancy being a surprise, family life and struggling to lose the baby weight after giving birth to her first son.

Check out some highlights below:

On becoming pregnant just eight weeks after she starting seeing now fiance, Muse rocker Matt Bellamy:  “[It] was all very old-fashioned and proper and we went on lovely dates.  And two months later I was pregnant… Well, yes [I was shocked], but I also thought: ‘This is going to be interesting.’”

On their relationship getting stronger after finding out they were expecting:  “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 eventually getting married:  “We will get married.  I do think it’s important but we have no plans. [Older son Ryder] wants a party. For me it’s not the legal part that is important, it’s what it means to the family.”

On family:  “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.”
