Kate Hudson has entered the “nepo baby” chat.
After New York Magazine published a cover story that explored the concept of the “nepo baby,” or those individuals whose careers may benefit from their connections to famed relatives, Hudson expressed her thoughts on the matter.
“The nepotism thing, I mean … I don’t really care,” she told The Independent. “I look at my kids and we’re a storytelling family. It’s definitely in our blood. People can call it whatever they want, but it’s not going to change it.”

New York Magazine included Hudson in its cover story, documenting her lineage as the daughter of Oscar-winning actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson. The actress was also raised by her mother’s longtime partner, actor Kurt Russell. Hudson now has three children: 18-year-old son Ryder Robinson, whom she shares with ex-husband Chris Robinson; 11-year-old son Bingham Bellamy, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy; and four-year-old Rani Fujikawa, whom she shares with her current fiancé, Danny Fujikawa.
“I actually think there are other industries where it’s [more common]. Maybe modeling?” Hudson continued. “I see it in business way more than I see it in Hollywood. Sometimes I’ve been in business meetings where I’m like, wait, whose child is this? Like, this person knows nothing!”
She added, “I don’t care where you come from, or what your relationship to the business is—if you work hard and you kill it, it doesn’t matter.”

Hawn recently accompanied Hudson to the premiere of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery for a rare mother-daughter appearance. At the time, Hudson credited her parents for instilling a “bullshit detector” in her.
“That’s what happens when you grow up with two movie stars as parents,” she told People. “Your bullshit detector is up here, you see it all. When you’re little, you’re like, ‘That person’s full of shit, that person’s full of shit,’ and I think it works really well when you’re doing a murder mystery.”
