For giving her “the most beautiful gifts life can give”, Kate Hudson thanks one person—the man she is deeply in love with—Danny Fujikawa. While the actress embodies women empowerment in how she had embraced motherhood as a single parent to her two sons in the past, meeting the right man has given her the picture perfect family.
Kate Hudson had known Fujikawa for almost 15 years before sparks flew between the two, and made them realize they were meant to be so much more together. The actress, who is now 40, knew Fujikawa as the step brother of her best friend. She previously shared the story of how their relationship changed on Instagram and wrote, “The first time I met Danny I was 23 and enormously pregnant with Ryder. His step sisters are my best friends… and so it goes we have been in the same circle for over a decade!”
An unexpected first date was the beginning of their wonderful romance. “A year ago today Danny took me on a hike and what I thought was just a hike with a family friend turned very quickly into an unexpected first date,” Hudson wrote. “No moves were made on this first date. In fact, it took months for him to make a first move! And as a kiss on this bridge would have been nice, the kiss a year later was so much sweeter. So on our 15th year of knowing each other we were able to open our hearts to each other to feel so much pure love and it’s been truly incredible.!”
With Fujikawa by her side, Hudson felt like she was finally with a man who makes her feel like they’re a team. “I’ve got the best man,” Hudson told Women’s Health. “It’s the first time I feel like I have a real teammate in this. We’re able to pick up where the other one has to leave off.”
What makes the relationship all the more special for the actress is that he’s completely devoted to being a dependable family man. Hudson, who has two sons, Ryder and Bingham from her previous relationships, welcomed her first daughter with Fujikawa. Their daughter, Rani Rose was born in October 2018, and watching her boyfriend turn into a doting father with his little girl is something that would make any woman’s heart fill with love.
“His number one priority is family,” Hudson said about her partner, who’s the former lead singer of a band and owns a record label.
Hudson went on to say, “…When we have our disputes, I feel the thing that allows us to get through them is having the same ultimate goal, and that includes being in each other’s life. It just feels so nice.”
While speaking to ET, Hudson also shared, “Danny is the greatest. I feel like I hit the jackpot. His natural ability as a dad is just amazing to watch. He’s also just an incredible, supportive partner for me. That’s a nice thing to have.”
When Fujikawa steps out with Hudson for public appearances, he can “go on and on” about all the things he loves about her. “She does things that 99.9 percent of other people cannot do because they do not have the willpower or the strength or the wherewithal to do things, and she does it tenfold,” the 33-year-old told Extra. “I mean, she’s like the busiest woman on the planet, as far as I’m concerned. I could go on and on. Most importantly, she’s an amazing person in her heart and soul, so that’s… that’s really where it counts.”
In a special message that Hudson wrote for her beloved on his birthday, she said, “This man has given me the most beautiful gifts life can give and the depth of gratitude I feel for the day he was born is beyond any measured spoken word or post. I believe that this gratitude exists and is present in our daughters joy and her magical spirit. Thank you Mama Fuj and Papa Fuj for raising this beautiful roller coaster ride of a special human. The ups and downs and sideways were all worth it… Happy Birthday baby! I love you ❤️”
