I’ve always admired Kate Hudson.
She never takes herself too seriously, she has an amazing relationship with her mum and she got to kiss not just Matthew Conaughey but also Heath Ledger.
But now I have an even bigger reason to admire her. She has just admitted to being the “okay” mum.
Hudson who is the mother of Ryder, 12, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and Bingham, 5, with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy, said she doesn’t expect herself to be the perfect mother.
“I don’t try to sugarcoat things,” she told the magazine.
“I’ll say, ‘I’m doing the best I can.’ I like cooking, I like presenting. I like it to be an experience and [my kids] help me with it, but if they want something after that, I’ll be like, ‘Look, I’m placing a meal out for you like a king. I can’t do everything. I’m going to have to be the OK mum.’”
And with that she has created a parenting label I’m happy to take on.
You know the type.
The one with one hand scrolling through her phone while pushing the swing at the park because something has to distract from that kind of torture.
The one who happily (and quickly) backtracked on the I’ll-never-use-a-dummy pledge because it was the only thing that kept the baby’s screams at bay.
The one who shrugged at the bottle vs breast-feeding debates in Facebook groups because she just did a bit of both.
