It was a weekend of babies in the celebrity world, as Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy welcomed a baby boy into the world on Saturday night. A rep confirmed that the Oscar-nominated actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy in Los Angeles, who weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz. This little bundle of joy is Hudson and Belamy’s first baby together, and he’ll join big brother Ryder, Hudson’s 7-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes (Kate certainly likes those musician types doesn’t she?).
Hudson and Bellamy officially announced their romance in late spring 2010 and confirmed Kate’s pregnancy in January 2011. Hudson initially shot down rumors of tying the knot with her Grammy-winning beau, stating, “I don’t feel it necessary to get married,” on the British chat show The Graham Norton Show. Yet on April 27th the mother of two debuted an engagement ring (worth an estimated $200,000) on the Today show that nearly knocked poor Matt Lauer out of his seat. Hudson slyly remarked, “I haven’t really announced it, I was waiting for someone to notice.” Who wouldn’t notice that thing?
Does the couple plan on having more kids in the future? It’s highly likely. Hudson told Marie Claire last month that “I love being pregnant…. I could be pregnant all the time.” But for now it’s just the start to a wonderful family with a brand new baby for Grandma Goldie to spoil. Hudson, Bellamy and the baby are expected to spend time together at Bellamy’s home in London while he records a new album. Congrats to the happy parents!
