After expressing the wish to reconnect with her estranged father Bill Hudson’s kids, aka her step-siblings, the actress is now opening up about her strained bond with her father, musician Bill Hudson. During an appearance on Sunday Today with Willie Geist, the actress got candid about the topic and said: “it’s a 41-year-old issue.” For the unversed, the 41-year-old actress was raised by her mother Goldie Hawn and Hawn's longtime partner Kurt Russell.

 

Talking more about her situation with Bill, Kate said that "I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common. I think it’s important for people to talk about that. Sometimes [we] need a little bit of talk and humour to move us into places where we can heal some of the wounds that have affected us and our families."

 

She added that while she has a great family and a devoted mother, she is thankfully blessed with a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in her life, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that Kate and her brother Oliver didn’t know their dad. While concluding, she also said that sometimes "People need to hear that they’re not alone in life.”

 

Hawn and Hudson were married from 1976 to 1982 and, following their divorce, the actor went on to have three other children. Kate has three children – two-year-old daughter Rani with musician Danny Fujikawa, 33, along with sons Ryder, 17, and Bingham, nine, from previous relationships.
