Co-parenting is challenging enough, let alone during a global pandemic.

But Kate Hudson has somehow made it not only work - but feels even closer to ex-Matt Bellamy after navigating parenting son Bingham, nine, throughout the last year. 

Speaking with Women's Health for their April issue, Hudson opened up about how she and the Muse frontman approach raising Bing and how she remains close to both Bellamy and his wife Elle Evans. 

"One thing that Matt said to me, which I loved, is, 'I just want to make sure that Bing feels like he's gaining something, not losing something'," she told the magazine. 

The challenges of the last year have also helped them to feel connected, knowing that each was doing their part to keep the other safe. 

"I think it's even bonded us closer — me, Matt, Elle and Danny — because we have to trust that we're protecting each other."

Hudson said it was a similar positive relationship with her ex-husband Chris Robinson, who she shares son Ryder, 17. Hudson is also mum to daughter Rani Rose, two, with partner Danny Fujikawa. 

"I'm really lucky. I've got lots of dads. I trust them," she said.

Hudson also recently opened up to People about how her brother Oliver inspires her own parenting style, saying she admired how he and wife Erinn ensured they made time for each other, outside of parenting their three kids. 

"Oliver and Erinn are so good at taking the time to drop the kids off at our house, and they go and they do their weekends, before, of course, COVID. They really take the time," she told People.

"It's something that I want to take from Oliver, which I think is a really good thing."

"They like to go have fun together and remind each other how much fun they have, just the two of them. And they do it at least once a month."
