They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and in this case they were absolutely right.
These celebrity kids have very famous parents… some you probably knew, and some you didn’t.
1. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson, the star of movies such as Fool’s Gold, The Skeleton Key and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, was destined for great things since she was born.
Her mother, Goldie Hawn, Academy Award winning actress made sure of that and not to mention her step-dad actor Kurt Russell, who helped Goldie raise Kate and her brother, along with actor Oliver Hudson (Rules Of Engagement).
Kate’s father, William Louis “Bill” Hudson is an American singer and actor, best known for being in the band The Hudson Brothers. He married the Academy Award winning actress in 1976 following her divorce from Gus Trikonis.
The couple had two children, both of whom went into an acting profession. However, Hudson has specified that her genetic dad “doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall”, and that she sees Russell as her father. On the other hand, Kate has called her mother as “the woman that I’ve learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to.”
Kate Hudson is of Italian, English, Hungarian Jewish and German, as well as a very distant Dutch descent. Kate was accepted to New York University but chose an acting career instead of an undergraduate degree when she was younger.
