Kate Hudson turns 33 years young today.

She's a talented actress, a devoted mother of two and a free spirit who often shows up in bikini photos. Talk about the whole package, right?

The Something Borrowed star, who welcomed a son, Bingham nine months ago, with fiance Matthew Bellamy, was already mom to eight-year-old Ryder (from her previous marriage to Chris Robinson). And yet she still looks this good:

Kate and Matt, who got engaged last year, have been together for several years. He's a member of the rock band Muse ... and cleaned up nicely for the Oscars.

Other celebrity birthdays on the calendar today? Ashley Judd (44), James Franco (34) and Maria Sharapova (25). Here's wishing all of them the best!

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy are already the parents of a beautiful baby boy named Bingham, a.k.a. Bing. But are they also married, completely on the DL?

The pair announced their engagement last April, yet may have taken things a step further at some point since, if a source close to them is to be believed.

Hudson's mother, Oscar winner Goldie Hawn, 66, may have let marriage news slip during an interview with the U.K.'s Evening Standard's ES magazine.

"When my daughter Kate married an English rock star it didn't worry me," Hawn is quoted as saying. "All that matters is that the relationship is a good one."

Last weekend, Hudson and Bellamy certainly looked every bit the happy couple: They were spotted lolling on the beach and cuddling in the surf in Cancun.

This would be Kate's second marriage; she previously married to Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson. She and Chris also have an 8-year-old son, Ryder.

Congratulations, very possibly, to the couple!

Kate Hudson is reportedly very upset that her father, Bill Hudson, has written a scandalous book about the actress and her famous mother, Goldie Hawn.

Two Versions: The Other Side of Fame and Family claims Hawn carried on brazen affairs during their relationship and begged him for an open marriage.

Bill Hudson, a musician, alleges that Hawn had dalliances with Shampoo co-star Warren Beatty and French actor Yves Renier while they were married.

He also refers to Kate as a spoiled brat, among other things.

Goldie, who has been partnered with Kurt Russell for many years, informed Bill she also had an affair with a Swedish man named Bruno, he claims.

“My mouth dropped open. I didn’t know how to respond. ‘Wait, weren’t we just saying how much we love each other," he recalls asking his then-wife.

"Didn’t we just make love for days on end? And now you tell me this guy is coming here and staying with you? Are you going to tell him about us?’

That's what we call an overshare, B.

Most people are familiar with Kate Hudson's mother, Oscar-winning actress Goldie Hawn.

But almost no one knows the identity of this star's father, something Bill Hudson is aiming to change with his upcoming memoir, "So You Are a Star."

In the book, this Michael Lohan wannabe rails against his daughter for allegedly not spending time with her Alzheimer's disease-afflicted grandmother, writing: "I love Kate, but... She has done stuff which is just awful. She is a spoiled brat and at the end of the day, she should meet her little sister. I should meet my grandchild and she should help her grandmother."

Kate Hudson is pregnant - and engaged to Matthew Bellamy!

The actress made the surprise announcement on Wednesday's Today Show after Matt Lauer noticed the giant engagement ring on her finger.

Confirming her engagement publicly for the first time, Kate Hudson said, "I haven't really announced it, I was waiting for someone to notice."

Well, props to Matt for the scoop!

Although she kept quiet on the details details, the Oscar-nominated star said the "very romantic" proposal went down about a week ago in NYC.

It will be the second marriage for Kate, who divorced Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson in 2006 after nearly six years. They have a son Ryder, 7.

Her marriage news comes as something of a surprise, even though she and Matt have been inseparable since her pregnancy announcement.

"I don't feel it necessary to [marry]. I already have a child, and have had a divorce, so it's not necessarily the golden ticket," she said recently.

"I just want to be happy."

Looks like she decided marrying Matt would make her happy. Congratuatlons!
