Kate Hudson said she didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions in 2021, but revealed she wants to reconnect with her family this year.
During the January 8 episode of Sibling Revelry, Kate and her brother, Oliver Hudson, discussed mending the relationship with their family members.
“You know what I’ve been thinking about lately? Dad. I’ve been thinking a lot about Dad,” said Kate, 41.
“I’ve been thinking about our sisters that we don’t spend any time with and our brother — brothers. We’ve got four siblings we don’t spend any time with,” she added.
Kate said she’s thought about how “everybody’s getting older” and “it would be nice to connect a little bit – especially with my sisters.”
The oldest Hudson siblings are the children of Goldie Hawn, 75, and Bill Hudson, 71. The couple was married for six years until they separated in 1982.
Bill went on to have two children with his then-wife, “Laverne and Shirley” star Cindy Williams. He had another daughter in 2006 from a different relationship.
Goldie Hawn has been dating Kurt Russell for 37 years and the couple shares one son together, Wyatt Russell.
“We’ve been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships,” Kate said. “And we’re sitting here like, ‘we’ve got the best family, we’re so great’ and yet we don’t ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings. Four.”
Kate continued: “So I’ve been thinking a lot about the Hudsons. Thinking it’s important that we reach out with all of our siblings and maybe connect with them a little bit.”
The Hudson family’s complicated relationship has made headlines
In 2015, Oliver shared a childhood picture of himself, Kate, and their father for Father’s Day. He captioned the photo “Happy abandonment day.”
That same year, Bill said during an interview with The Daily Mail that he did not recognize Kate and Oliver as his children.
“I say to them now, ‘I set you free,'” Bill told the outlet.
“I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three,” Bill said. “I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own…I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver’s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.”
Kate later told Howard Stern that she forgave Bill, saying, “I really do recognize whatever those issues are, it’s just something that he has to live with, and that must be painful for him, so I forgive him.”
