Kate Hudson and her boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa, welcomed their daughter Rani on October 2, and less than two months after giving birth, the proud mom is showing off her post-baby body. And, no, it’s not magically toned or smoothed over as you may have come to expect from celeb moms. On Thursday, Hudson posted an Instagram selfie wearing a sports bra and leggings, explaining in the caption that she felt it was time to start focusing on her herself again. Why? “Because I wanna be around a long time for these three kiddos of mine,” the 39-year-old actress wrote.
“It is the most challenging thing in the world to balance kids and personal time,” she continued. “Let’s be honest, kids take the number one position and it’s haaaaard to make the time for yourself.” But Hudson has learned to balance motherhood (she is also mother to 14-year-old Ryder and 7-year-old Bingham), a successful acting career, and a wellness empire which includes Fabletics, JustFab, and a number of books. And now she is on a mission to get back to her “fighting weight.”
Hudson went on to explain that she is shooting a new film in the spring and would like to drop 25 pounds before filming. As we all know, celebrity moms are under an immense amount of pressure to “bounce back” after having a baby, but being a wellness junkie, she insists on doing it the healthy way, not sacrificing her well-being nor her family’s in order to lose weight. “I wanna do all this and keep up milk production, raise my kids, work everyday, make time for my man, have girlfriend time and stay sane!” she wrote. “I feel motivated to keep that up.”
Hudson will be sharing her journey on the official Instagram account for her book, Pretty Happy. There you will find the everything from the exercises she’s loving to the recipes she’s cooking up to the meditation mantras keeping her on track. BRB, refreshing my feed!
