Kate Hudson’s Pregnancy with Bingham Was Unplanned
Bingham Hawn Bellamy’s parents Kate and Matt began dating in mid-2010 and by January 2011, rumors began to spread on media outlets that Kate was pregnant with their child. The news was confirmed by her representative on January 13th. She later revealed during her first trimester that she was shocked to realize that she was pregnant just two months into their relationship. While she had not planned to have a child before her 33rd birthday, the then-31-year-old actress claimed that she was excited about the turn of events. She stated that her relationship with Matt became stronger following the pregnancy, but added that while she felt marriage was important, they did not have plans for that at the time. During an interview with ‘Today’ in April that year, she also mentioned that while she did not want to learn about the sex of the baby before giving birth, she believed that the child is a girl.
His Birth Was Celebrated by Donating Trees
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy celebrated the birth of Bingham Hawn Bellamy in a unique way by asking friends and relatives to donate trees instead of bringing in gifts for the baby or the couple. Kate sent emails to inform people of the birth of a healthy boy weighing 7lb 12oz, and encouraged them to donate to Barcham, an organization that allows people conscious about the environment to donate and plant trees. The couple had done the same a month earlier during her baby shower by asking for tree donations rather than traditional gifts.
His Name Honors Both Sides of His Family
About a month after his birth, his father Matt Bellamy revealed that the baby was named Bingham Hawn Bellamy to honor both of the couple’s families. They took four few days before sharing the baby’s name with the world in a tweet by Matt which revealed that Bingham was actually his mother’s maiden name. He added that his middle name Hawn was in honor of Hudson’s mother, renowned actress Goldie Hawn, and further revealed that the baby’s nickname ‘Bing’ is also the name of the father of Kurt Russell, Hawn’s longtime partner who raised Kate as her father. Interestingly, during Kate’s star-studded “family friendly” baby shower in early June 2011, guests had played a fun guessing game about what the name of the unborn child of the couple should be.
His Mother Has Three Children from Three Different Fathers
An interesting fact about Bingham’s mother Kate Hudson is that all of her three children are from three different partners. She married Chris Robinson, the frontman for The Black Crowes, on December 31, 2000, and gave birth to her first child Ryder Russell Robinson on January 7, 2004. Following their separation in 2006 and subsequent divorce, Kate began dating Matt Bellamy in 2010 and had Bingham in July 2011, before eventually separating in 2014. His mother began dating Danny Fujikawa in December 2016 and welcomed their daughter, Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa, on October 2, 2018. Bingham also has a step-sister named Lovella Dawn Bellamy from his father’s relationship with Elle Evans.
Both Kate and Matt Co-parent Bingham
Bingham’s parents, who announced ending their engagement on December 9, 2014, co-parent their child together. Kate later stated that while they separated because they “had different visions of how we wanted to live our lives”, she rebuilt her relationships in a way that would be “the best thing for the kids”. She also revealed that growing up with her step-father Kurt Russell, she learned a lot from her mother Goldie Hawn, like never to speak ill of her exes in front of her kids. She also revealed that good communication with her exes ensured that the former partners were on the same page about raising their kids following separation.
