Kate Hudson revealed on Friday, April 6, that she and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa are expecting a baby girl and it so happens that it was everything that the actress had been hoping for.

“Kate and Danny are over-the-moon ecstatic. Kate has had the baby itch and wanted a girl more than anything,” the source told the magazine. One of the reasons for this is her niece, Rio. “She has a special bond with her niece, Rio, and really wanted to experience having a daughter of her own,” the source explained, referring to the Bride Wars star’s brother Oliver Hudson and his wife Erinn Barlett’s 4-year-old daughter. 

Kate started dating Danny in December 2016. She has two sons from previous relationships: Ryder, 14, whom she shares with ex-husband Chris Robinson and Bingham, 6, whose father is Hudson’s ex-fiancé, Matthew Bellamy. Kate had known Danny for a long time and ever since the pair started dating, Kate reportedly wanted to start a family with him.

“Once she met Danny she just knew that she wanted a baby with him and hoped and prayed that it would happen. For it to be a girl is just the icing on the cake,” the source said.  “Danny is so good with kids and has been great with her boys.” Kate decided to drop the surprise bomb on fans with an Instagram post in which she revealed that she was pregnant. 

On Friday (April 6) posted a video of herself, Fujikawa, Ryder and Bingham holding balloons filled with pink confetti and captioned the picture as, "SURPRISE!!! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the sickest 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!”

She confessed that they were planning to keep the pregnancy a secret but is now ready to share her happiness with everyone. “BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap,” she continued. “We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! 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.”
