Congrats are in order for Kate Hudson! The actress announced the birth of her daughter on her Instagram on Thursday afternoon, October 3, with the caption: “She’s here.” In the post she writes, “Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”
The little girl, born on October 2, is the first child for Hudson and her boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa. She’s also mom to two sons—Ryder and Bing—from previous relationships. And it seems that the actress and Fujikawa had family in mind when deciding on their daughter’s name: Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa.
“We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawsa,” Hudson writes. “Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor.”

Hudson first announced her third pregnancy and that she was having a girl on social media via a video with many pink balloons. She also confessed in the post that she’d been suffering from morning sickness.
“SURPRISE!!!,” she wrote. “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 most sick first trimester of all my children…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 💕”
And since the announcement, she’s been taking followers along on her pregnancy journey—from family vacations and baby showers to workouts and trips to The Ellen Degeneres Show with her mom, Goldie Hawn, to promote their Fabletics collaboration.
Congrats to the family on the birth of baby Rani Rose!
