Goldie and Kate have always had a very close relationship, despite all of the barriers that mothers and daughters may face. Kate owes a lot of her success to Goldie, who set a perfect example to her while growing up and continues to serve as an inspirational figure for her.
She credits Goldie with instilling good values in her and says she wouldn’t be where she is today without an amazing mother like her. The two of them are very supportive of one another and are often seen in public together enjoying each other’s company.
The Absent Father Speaks
In 2015, Oliver shared a very honest Father's Day picture on Instagram with the caption "Happy abandonment day" clearly meant for their biological father, Bill. Bill Hudson shared his version of the story with The Daily Mail. He claims that Goldie turned his children against him. While he made attempts at staying close with Kate and Oliver following the divorce, Goldie kept the kids away from him, instead, wanting to grow the bond between them and Kurt.
After Oliver shared this last post, he decided that he no longer wanted any contact with his children. He shared with the Daily Mail "I say to them now, ‘I set you free.' I had five birth children and I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own... [Oliver] is dead to me now. As is Kate."
Hudson Kids Loved Kurt From Day 1
From the moment Kurt became a part of the Hudson's lives, the bond was just natural between them. They loved him since the moment they met him.
In an interview with People, Goldie shared "What really got me was when I watched my kids when they'd come to the set and how he was with them. He was amazing with them. He was such a natural."
What about Wyatt
Much like the rest of his acting family, Wyatt is following suit. Prior to dabbling in acting, Wyatt was a professional hockey player. He left the sport after battling a series of injuring. Having an athletic career under his belt helped him in the film Everybody Wants Some! when he played a partying athlete. Wyatt has acted in other films like 22 Jump Street, This is 40, and Love and Honor.
In 2016, Wyatt began a relationship with Meredith Hagner, a fellow actor whom he met on the set of Folk Hero and Funny Guy. The two recently became engaged. Wyatt has shared that his parents gave him one piece of advice: "Be on time, know your lines, and be a nice guy."
Time sure goes fast and Goldie and Kurt's children are now all adults. However, that means that there are now many grandchildren to rejoice in. Kate has three children of her own, a son, Ryder, with her ex-husband Chris Robinson, her second child, Bingham, with Matt Bellamy, and recently, the 39-year-old actress gave birth to a baby girl, Rani Rose, with her now boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.
Her brother, Oliver, has three children with his wife, Erin Bartlett. So grandpa Kurt and grandma Goldie still get to enjoy having babies and young children around when they all come visit.
