Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson is thrilled his estranged wife Kate Hudson's new relationship is allowing him more time with his son, according to reports.
The pair split last year and are currently in the process of getting divorced.
But the actress' alleged new relationship with US comedian Daz Shepherd is reportedly being encouraged by Robinson, who hopes his distracted ex will give him more time with their three-year-old son.
A source tells PageSix.com: "Dax is basically living at her house right now.
"Chris is thrilled because now he can have Ryder whenever he wants… Kate gets a little more distracted when new men come into her life."
Hudson's representative, Brad Cafarelli, denies speculation the actress has moved in with Shepherd, insisting: "None of what you're speculating here is accurate."
