Kate: How Pregnancy Strengthened My Relationship
Kate Hudson shares how Matthew Bellamy stepped up with her surprise bun in the oven.
"I thought, 'This is going to be interesting,'" Hudson tells Elle UK's May issue. "I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it. You know that with a relationship, things can go either way when you have a child. When you get pregnant everything changes; you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision."
Bellamy, the frontman of the British band Muse, proved himself by stepping up to the plate. "He was there and that was that," she continued. "Now it’s three wonderful years later. Things happen for a reason."
"I'm a lot less a rock chick and a lot more about being a good mother, a good partner," she explains. "I'm part of a family."
Though they got engaged back in April 2011, Hudson and Bellamy aren't rushing to the altar. "We will get married," she says. "I do think it's important, but we have no plans. For me it's not the legal part that is important, it's what it means to the family."
"When I was a kid, my brothers and sisters and I wanted [Kurt and Goldie] to get married," Hudson said "We were all together at home, Dad gave Mum a ring and said some beautiful words. It was their own version of the ceremony and I remember it so well. It was like it was about us. The family was the glue."
