Kate Hudson is a true reflection of her superstar mother, Goldie Hawn, in more ways than one. Not only does she look like her, sporting the same golden locks and mesmerizing smile of her iconic mother, but she has a great career in Hollywood as well. And on top of that, the two seem incredibly close, which you don’t always see in superstar families. Hudson recently took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of her Hawn from way back when Hudson was still a baby, and it’s delightfully nostalgic.
Goldie Hawn, known for such films as Overboard, Bird on a Wire, and Death Becomes Her, has always been adored for just how cheerful and sweet she is. In any role she stars in, she brings tons of charm and charisma, and has been working steadily in the industry since her days on the TV show, Laugh-In from way back in 1967.
She married Kate’s father, Bill Hudson, on July 3rd, 1976, and she gave birth to Kate Hudson on April 19th, 1979. Kate was raised by Hawn and her longtime partner, Kurt Russell and it become pretty evident to the couple that their daughter had the same gift as her mother, which they worked to nurture and support. Flash forward 40+ years and now Kate Hudson is a successful actress and mother, raising her kids with similar support and love she got as a child.
Hudson took to Instagram this week to share a retro photo of her famous Mom holding her as a baby, and announcing to the world:
Happy Birthday to my beautiful mother! ? I love you so much!!!
Though you do tend to see a lot of famous families, sometimes those families can be surrounded by rumors, drama, and problems (the royal family, anyone?). But when you see Hawn and Hudson, you see two people who genuinely adore each other and who help make the other shine brighter, and It is a lovely thing to see, especially when the world is so chaotic.
