Taking to Instagram, actress Kate Hudson not only gave us the reason why she was keeping low all these months but also shocked fans with a pleasant surprise.

On Friday, the Fabletics co-founder announced that she is pregnant with her third child—specifically, a girl.

Hudson uploaded a long post explaining her social media silence along with a reveal video of her baby's sex. In the video, she stands in a backyard wearing an ethereal white maxi gown beside her friends and family and two sons, where they are holding up four huge balloons covered in question marks. On the count of three, they stab the balloons with knives, unleashing a torrent of pink confetti and pink and white balloons.

"SURPRISE!!! 🤱," the 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' actress wrote in the caption.

"If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick!"

The mom-to-be added, "[It] was the most sick first trimester of all my children. Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been."

“If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing … I was lying!” Hudson continued on her Friday video post.

“BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of Insta/Snap.” “We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now!” she added. “And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way 💕”

This will be Hudson's first child with her boyfriend, musician Danny Fujikawa.

The 38-year-old has two other children, 6-year-old Bingham with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy, and 14-year-old Ryder, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.
