Looks like Kate Hudson was fibbing when she told Hello! Magazine that marriage “wasn’t in her future right now,” because the actress just flashed an impressive ring on Today, confirming to Matt Lauer that she and boyfriend Matthew Bellamy of the band Muse are engaged (“This is new!”). Hudson has denied wedding plans since announcing she was pregnant with Bellamy’s child in January, and says the proposal finally came around a week ago. “[It was] very sweet and very romantic,” said Hudson.
Despite telling Hello! she’d “shift focus and spend more time at home” after her child’s birth in July (she has a 7-year-old, Ryder, from her marriage to The Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson), Hudson also told Lauer she’d still love to play Linda Lovelace in the other film planned about the former porn star (Inferno, starring Malin Akerman, is still a go). Somehow we don’t think Hello! will be sending Kate a wedding gift.

It’s pretty obvious that Kate Hudson is pregnant, but up until now, the actress hadn’t actually confirmed that she’s carrying Matt Bellamy‘s baby. During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday however, she finally opened up about the bun in her oven. “I’m just starting to pop,” she told the talk show host. “We have a couple of names, but we’re not telling anyone,” she continued, and said that the baby “feels like a girl, but I don’t know.”
One rumor Hudson was keen to dismiss was that she and Bellamy are engaged. When asked if she and the Muse frontman were planning to wed she replied “No, no, not that I know of! I don’t like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don’t feel it necessary to get married…I am 31, I already have one child, and have had one divorce, so it is not necessarily the golden ticket. I just want to be happy.” Hudson sounds like she’s taking after her mama Goldie Hawn. Hawn and Kurt Russell are easily Hollywood’s most famous common-law couple, and they’ve been pretty happy for twenty-five years now.

Looks like Kate Hudson‘s letting go of the anger and moving on from the Alex Rodriguez-Cameron Diaz‘s love-fest . But is she moving on to a(nother) rock star? Looks like a little bit of deja vu for Kate, whose ex is Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson.
Hudson boarded a plane to Paris this weekend to attend the second of two sold-out Muse shows at the Stade de France. She was spotted out and about the next day with Matthew Bellamy, Muse‘s frontman and a source revealed, “They seemed very much a couple. Just walking together, enjoying the sunshine.” They were seen around the Place Vendome, and then proceeded to enjoy a late lunch together at the Brasserie Lipp, bolting through the rear exit when the paps turned up. Hopping continents for a show and a date – sounds like something romantic going on, though knowing Kate, it’ll be over before you can say “Hey, remember Owen Wilson, Lance Armstrong and A-Rod?”
