Kate Hudson opens up about her post-baby body with revealing Instagram photo
2018 has arguably been the year of the celebrity pregnancy announcement. The Kardashian-Jenner's bid to repopulate Planet Earth proved largely successful, and now it seems like everyone has decided to follow suit.
Chrissy Tiegen and John Legend welcomed their second child back in May, and currently, everyone from Carrie Underwood to Pippa Middleton are due to have their bébés before the year is out. The most recent addition to the celebrity circuit? Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa's daughter.
Hudson and her musician boyfriend, Fujikawa, took to Instagram to announce that they welcomed their first child, two months ago.
"She's here!" the actress captioned the image, which featured her baby girl's birthdate - October 2nd. Hudson later revealed her daughter's name, which was a sweet tribute to Fujikawa's father.
"We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa," the Almost Famous star wrote. "Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honour."
"Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you all for the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back."
Now, two months after Rani Rose was born, the actress has shared a photo of her post-baby body, explaining that she feels it's time to focus on her health.
"The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself," she wrote. "For me that means my health. Why? Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine. I know that some are curious about what that means and for all you moms (whether working or not working moms) it is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time."
"Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself," she continued. "I’ve been doing a lot of research and I’ve spent my life time trying all kinds of new things that are focused on health and wellness. Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight ;) and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey."
Hudson went onto explain that she's shooting a film in the spring, and wants to drop 25 pounds before then.
"I’d like to try new workouts and eat as healthy as I can," she noted. "I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane! I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up. Much love and hope everyone’s having an amazing start to the holidays!"
Good luck, Kate!
