Kate Hudson Says She’s Raising Daughter Rani With A Genderless Approach
Hollywood actress Kate Hudson is allowing her daughter Rani Rose to choose her own gender as she grows up.
In a recent interview with AOL Hudson was asked if she does anything differently when it comes to parenting a girl compared to boys. “Having a daughter doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference,” she said.
“I think you just raise your kids individually regardless — like a genderless approach,” she continued. “We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as.”
“I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way,” Hudson continued. “It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes.”

Hudson, and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa welcomed their daughter Rani in October. The 39 year old actress is already mum to 15-year-old son Ryder, whom she shares with Chris Robinson, and 7-year-old son Bingham, whom she shares with Muse’s Matt Bellamy.
“With the boys, it was just onesies … actually, I did pretty good with the boys,” Hudson continued. “But with her, it’s a whole other ball game. There’s some stuff that I’m like, ‘I can’t do that to her, because it’s so over-the-top.'”
Looks like Hudson is loving dressing up Rani in over-the-top outfits though and happily shares them to her Instagram account. How adorable is this red ensemble!!
“I was a tomboy in a spinning dress,” she said of her own childhood. “My middle brother Boston Russell, who is closest to me in age, was basically my sister because I put makeup on him all the time, and I’d dress him up and he loved it.”
“But growing up as a girl with all boys, you end up with a thick skin. You really do,” she explained. “People say, ‘Oh, your brothers must’ve really protected you.’ And I’m like, ‘They threw me right into the fire!'”
The mum of three went on to explain how hectic her household is at the moment but also to share her love of being a mother of such a busy family.
“It’s great, it’s a lot right now, I’m not going to lie, it’s busy in the house. It’s a lot trying to juggle and manage, and balance is a daily … it’s like, the family huddles around and everyone gets their strategy and then we’re like, ‘Hike! Let’s do this, let’s spread out.’ But it’s good,'” she said.
“Basically, I’ve been having children my entire adult life,” Hudson continued. “Ryder is 15, he’s sort of doing his own thing right now. He needs a different kind of nurturing. I’m nurturing him differently than, say, Rani and Bing. Him, it’s like a more mental nurture these days. Like, ‘Let’s sit down and talk about this.’ But in terms of having to do things, he’s really independent and doing a lot on his own and more helpful than it is needing from me in that way. He’s more my helper.”
