Hudson: Life is harder with two kids - but can be 'amazing'

Kate Hudson admits her life is "getting harder" now she is a mother of two.

Kate Hudson admits her life is "getting harder" now she is a mother of two.

The 32-year-old actress – who has seven-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson and four-week-old son Bingham with fiance Matt Bellamy – thinks it is growing increasingly difficult to juggle her work and family commitments, but insists she would never complain about her "crazy" schedule.

She said: "Logistics are definitely getting harder. You have to think about things like, 'Where is it? How long is it going to keep me away from my family?'

"But, you know, life moves on. I would never want to be someone who complains and goes, 'Oh my god, my life is so crazy.' If you make the best of it, it can be amazing."

Kate has been relying on advice from her mother, screen legend Goldie Hawn, on how to juggle her home life and career, while still being an involved parent.

She said: "We’ve definitely had lots of talks about parenting and being a working mom.

"My parents allowed my brother and I to have our freedom and be ourselves and feel confident in our choices and to make mistakes without too much judgement. I hope that I can do as good a job."

The 'Something Borrowed' actress also admitted she and Muse singer Matt are in no hurry to get married.

She told the new issue of Elle magazine: "One thing at a time. We’ll say hello to our new one and enjoy that for a while."
