Kate Hudson is so in love with her baby girl, Rani Rose. The 40-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a beautiful tribute to daughter on her first birthday.
Kate and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa are clearly reflecting on what a wonderful year it’s been watching Rani grow.
“And what a year it’s a been,” Kate captioned the video tribute, shared with her 10 million followers. “A big Happy 1st birthday to Rani Rose.”
The video is set to music guaranteed to make you ugly cry. The little girl can be seen wiggling her cute toes and looking precious as can be. Celebrity friends and moms alike flooded Kate’s post with comments marveling over how beautiful and heartwarming the tribute to Rani was.
It seems the 1-year-old has done quite a bit of celebrating with family and friends. And why not? A first birthday is a big milestone for both parents and baby. It seems like Kate, along with Rani’s older siblings, are soaking it all in.
Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa have a lot to celebrate. Their daughter, Rani Rose, celebrated her first birthday on October 2. Friends and family have been sharing their well-wishes for the little girl on her special day.
The festivities kicked off earlier in the week, when Rani enjoyed a joint birthday party with stylist Jamie Mizrahi’s son, Yale. Both of the proud mamas shared photos from the event on Instagram.
“An Oktoberfest themed Jewish new year 1st birthday party 🎈🍺🎂 🤷🏻♀️,” Jamie wrote alongside her pictures. All four parents and their tots are all smiles and laughter while donning traditional German garb.
On Tuesday, Kate took to Instagram to share her official birthday wishes for her daughter, along with a sweet video of the little girl. “And what a year it’s a been 💫,” she captioned the video. “A big Happy 1st Birthday to Rani Rose 🎂”.
Kate wasn’t the only one who was excited to share their birthday wishes for Rani. Grandma Goldie Hawn also shared a tribute to the 1-year-old. “Happy 1st birthday to my granddaughter Rani Rose Fujikawa 🌹,” Goldie wrote. “Our new little princess flower who makes us jump for joy ⭐️❤️.”
While Rani is the first little girl for Kate and the first child for Danny, Kate is also mom to two not-so-little boys. Son Ryder Russell is 15 years old, and Bingham Hawn is 8 years old. Kate opened up about the change in dynamic in her household earlier this year.
“We’re sort of balancing out the masculine and the feminine,” Kate told Entertainment Tonight with a smile. “It’s great — it’s a lot right now, I’m not going to lie — it’s busy in the house. It’s a lot trying to juggle and manage.”
Kate continued, saying that “it’s like, the family huddles around and everyone gets their strategy and then and we’re like, ‘Hike! Let’s do this, let’s spread out.’ But it’s good.” It seems like their family jumped all in on adjusting to life with an infant in the home.
With seven years between each of her children, there are some differences in approach. “Basically, I’ve been having children my entire adult life,” she joked. “Ryder is 15, he’s sort of doing his own thing right now. He needs a different kind of nurturing.”
“I’m nurturing him differently than, say, Rani and Bing,” she continued. “Him, it’s like a more mental nurture these days. Like, ‘let’s sit down and talk about this.’ But in terms of having to do things, he’s really independent and doing a lot on his own and more helpful than it is needing from me in that way. He’s more my helper.”
Kate has also really enjoyed watching Danny come into his own as a father. “Danny is the greatest. I feel like I hit the jackpot,” she revealed. “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.”
Another wonderful way Rani has changed the family has to do with grandma Goldie. “I think my mom, it’s like, she said there’s something about … when you watch your little girl have a little girl, that’s really amazing for her, seeing the extension of the feminine line continue,” Kate explained.
“When she sees Rani … it must be what men feel like when they have their son, their lineage, and they look at their son, and there’s something about that that’s really amazing,” she continued. “And you know, Rani, there’s just something sort of magical about her. She’s just a little magical Fujikawa.”
It seems like in her 12 short months, Rani has really transformed the lives of those who love her. It’s beautiful to see how much a baby can impact a family. If she can do all of that before turning 1, we can’t wait to see how her magic continues to affect those around her as she grows.
