Kate Hudson Hopes to Reconnect with Estranged Dad Bill Hudson's Other Children

Kate Hudson is hoping to reconnect with her family.

During the newest episode of her podcast Sibling Revelry with older brother Oliver Hudson, the 41-year-old actress revealed that she’s been thinking a lot about their estranged dad Bill Hudson and his four other children.

“You know what I’ve been thinking about lately? Dad,” Kate shared. “I’ve been thinking about our sisters that we don’t spend any time with and our brother — brothers. We’ve got four siblings we don’t spend any time with.”

If you didn’t know, Bill was married to Kate and the 44-year-old actor’s mom Goldie Hawn from 1976 to 1982. After their divorce, Bill had two other children – daughter Emily and son Zachary – with then-wife Cindy Williams. In 2006, Bill also welcomed daughter Lalania.

Ever since their parents’ divorce, Kate and Oliver have had an estranged relationship with their dad. A few years ago, Oliver shared an update on his relationship with Bill.

“I was thinking about how everybody’s getting older,” Kate continued. “It would be nice to connect a little bit, especially with my sisters.”

“We’ve been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships or good relations — and we’re sitting here like we have the best family, we’re so great and yet we don’t ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings. Four,” Kate added. “So I’ve been thinking about the Hudsons. Thinking it’s important that we reach out with all of our siblings and maybe connect with them a little bit.”

He was asked if he regretted posting the caption and this was his reply: “No, and I’ll tell you why. I was just talking to you guys about this. It actually started a dialogue that I haven’t talked to my father in twelve years. And my sort of dark, crazy sense of humor, I posted this happy abandonment day thing which everyone went crazy about and I was just trying to be funny and at the end of the day it was a good thing. We’re communicating now. had an amazing three day conversation with him and we’re texting and we’re trying to see each other. We might be mending.”

Kate & Oliver Hudson's Father Bill Says They Are 'Dead to Me'

Kate Hudson‘s biological father Bill has spoken out after her brother Oliver slammed him in a recent Father’s Day Instagram post.

“I say to them now, ‘I set you free,’” Bill told the Daily Mail. “I had five birth children [including three from another relationship], but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognize Oliver and Kate as my own.”

He continued, “I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver‘s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.”

Bill said that his ex-wife Goldie Hawn never had anything bad to say about him until Kurt Russell entered the picture.

“But when Kurt came on the scene, the narrative changed, and I became the big, bad wolf,” Bill said. “I would say to her, ‘Goldie, why are you trashing me and saying I’m an absent father when it’s simply not the case?’ and she’d laugh and go ‘Oh Bill, you know it makes for a better story.’”

Bill and Goldie were married from 1976 to 1980 and the kids were raised by their mom and her longtime partner Kurt after the divorce.
