Kate Hudson doesn’t want baby Rani Rose to feel the strictures of gender-labels. The 39-year-old mom of three told AOL recently that she is embracing a "genderless approach" to parenting 3-month-old Rani and her two older brothers from Hudson’s previous relationships, Bingham, 7, and Ryder, 15.
"Having a daughter doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference," she told the outlet. "I think you just raise your kids individually regardless — like a genderless approach. We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as."
"I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way," Hudson explained. "It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes."
She says her own upbringing as one of girl among brothers helped inform her approach. "I was a tomboy in a spinning dress," she shared. "My middle brother Boston Russell, who is closest to me in age, was basically my sister because I put makeup on him all the time, and I’d dress him up and he loved it."
