Kate Hudson Clarifies 'Genderless' Approach to Raising Her Newborn Daughter

Kate Hudson is clarifying her approach to raising her newborn daughter, Rani Rose, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

Following an interview with AOL in which she explained she’d raise her daughter using “a genderless approach,” Kate clarified on Tuesday (January 29) on her Instagram.

“Recently, someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys. My response was simple: Not really. This whole clickbait tactic of saying I’m raising my daughter to be ‘genderless’ is silly and frankly doesn’t even make sense,” she wrote.

“I raise and will continue to raise my children — both my boys and girl — to feel free to be exactly who they want to be, to feel confident in their life choices and feel loved and supported no matter what. Me saying a ‘genderless approach’ was a way of refocusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype. It just felt a little antiquated to me. Not all girls want to be princesses. Some want to be king! And that’s fine by me,” she added.

“I recognize some want to take the headline earnestly, as if I have some new-age method of raising my kids, and I hate disappointing people, but I don’t. I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big, crazy world. And if they grow up and identify with something different than what others want to identify them as, mama’s cool with it! I keep it simple ’cause we all know raising kids is anything but!”
