Kate Hudson Welcomes Baby Girl! Find Out Story Behind Her Unique Name


She’s here! Kate Hudson took to Instagram on Wednesday, October 3, to announce the arrival of her daughter with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

The couple welcomed Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa on Tuesday, October 2.

“We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa. Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor,” Hudson shared in a post captioned “She’s here.”


“Everyone is doing well and happy as can be,” she concluded. “Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”

Hudson is also mom to 7-year-old son Bingham Hawn from her relationship with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy and 14-year-old son Ryder Russell from her marriage to ex-husband Chris Robinson.


Hudson announced in April that she and Fujikawa were expecting. The couple, who have been friends for more than 15 years, have been dating for over a year.
