Actress Kate Hudson welcomed her baby girl, Rani Rose, in October last year. In a series of workout photos, the star revealed that staying fit didn’t mean she would neglect her motherly duties.
A friend and workout buddy shared an image and videos of the actress multitasking as she exercised and breastfed her baby daughter.
Kate Hudson’s friend Erin Foster took the cute photo of the actress wearing her workout outfit as she breastfed Rani Rose, 3-months-old, with a smile on her face. Her friend is also her boyfriend’s stepsister.
A couple of images and videos were posted on Monday by Foster on her Instagram Story. Some of the posts showed the actress sitting down to feed Rani but she was also seen breastfeeding while keeping up with her workout routine.
One short video showed Hudson nursing her baby while doing leg lifts, squats, and static lunges. Foster captioned the clip, “Motherhood doesn’t slow us down," with the song "Money" by Cardi B playing in the background.
Multi-skilled Hudson, 39, is the co-founder of the activewear brand Fabletics. She’s also the current brand ambassador for Weight Watchers.
The mother of three wore black leggings, an athletic purple turtleneck crop top, and sneakers for her home exercise. Hours before the posts went up the actress set the record straight about what she meant when she said she took a “genderless” approach when it came to parenting.
Besides her last born, Hudson has two sons Bingham Hawn, 7½, and Ryder Russell, 15. She had Rani with her boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa, 32.
In an interview with AOL, Hudson originally said:
“[Having a daughter] doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless — like a genderless [approach]. We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as.”
She later took to Instagram on Monday to clear up the confusion about her statement. The star wrote,
“Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys. My response was simple. Not really. The whole click bait tactic of saying I’m raising my daughter to be ‘genderless’ is silly and frankly doesn’t even make sense.”
She further added:
“Me saying a ‘genderless approach’ was a way of refocusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype. It just felt a little antiquated to me. Not all girls want to be a princess, some want to be king. And that’s fine by me.”
“I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big crazy world. Happy Monday. Much love, Kate.”
