Listen Up, Moms: Kate Hudson Has Something to Say About Her Postpartum Body

Talk about mom goals.

By: Amanda Mushro

While it can seem like moms in Hollywood magically lose all their baby weight in just a few weeks, Kate Hudson is getting real about postpartum bodies and moms taking care of themselves. She became a mom-of-three just eight weeks ago, and now the actress is ready to reclaim a little “me time,” focus on her health, and hopes to inspire other moms to focus on themselves, too.

“So … here we go!” she began and Instagram post where she is showing off her postpartum body in workout gear. “The routine with our baby is getting more familiar and I’m ready to start taking a little time in the day focusing on myself. For me that means my health.”

Hudson, who is mom to two-month-old Rani, Bingham Hawn, 7, and Ryder Russell, 14, says her reasoning for wanting to get healthy is simple: “I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine.”

Hudson admits that for moms, it can seem like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. “Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself,” she writes. “Because I am on a mission right now to get back to my fighting weight ;) and my strong body/mind back I want to bring you in on some of this journey.”

Hudson will be documenting her exercise routines, recipes she is making for her family, and her meditation practices on Instagram and wants other moms to join her.

“I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work every day, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane!” she writes. “I know that this sounds more like a new year resolution but after Thanksgiving and everyone thanking their health, I feel motivated to keep that up.”

As a mom who could use more hours in the day and a boost to my health and energy, I am loving Hudson’s realistic approach to focusing on her health and her family and that she wants to inspire other moms to do the same.
