If you thought that Kate Hudson was this sparkling, spotless little golden girl of a tinkling bell that JUST HAPPENED to get pregnant by ANOTHER frontman of ANOTHER popular band, you were dead wrong, man.
Kate, in a recent interview with InStyle, makes no bones about hooking her latest victim, Matthew Bellamy of Muse – she practically admits to trapping him with her extra-fertile eggs, and says that “we” were “tempting fate,” and “it worked.” (And if by “we” she means “I,” “me,” or even flat-out “Kate Hudson,” then yes, she’s correct.)
On the way that the couple met:
“[I was] watching Radiohead’s Thom Yorke with a guy I knew from high school, who introduced me to Matthew. We realized we had met a few years earlier, in Australia. Then I got distracted and said, ‘I’ve got to find my friends; I don’t know where they went.’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Come on, I’ll take care of you.’ That’s when I went, ‘Wait a minute, who are you?’ “
On what she likes best about “Matthew”:
“Matthew was polite and immediately protective, which for somebody like me who’s all over the place – one minute I’m over here and the next I’m over there – is important.” Plus, she adds, “He is just an amazing person. … In the beginning I felt like, okay, this is going to be heavy. Am I prepared for this? Because it had been a while, and I wasn’t looking for that, but I just couldn’t stay away. I wanted to talk to him and be with him all the time. On our first dates we would take long walks and talk the entire day.”
And of course, on the way that their child was conceived:
“Well, it wasn’t like we didn’t know what we were doing. There were no ovulation kits involved. We were tempting fate, and it worked … I didn’t think I was going to have another kid until I was maybe 33 – that was in the back of my mind before I met Matthew. But we were so in love when it happened, it was just so exciting for both of us.”
Yes, very exciting and I’m glad Kate’s happy this year with receiving Matt’s, I’m sorry, Matthew’s special seeds of whatever and all, but incidentally – is she talking about the very Thom Yorke who cheekily rejected Kate herself? Because I don’t know many Thom Yorkes who also happen to be musicians. Way to avoid wasting any time whatsoever there, girl!
