Kate Hudson has opened up about co-parenting with her children's fathers - and revealed how her relationship with her stepfather, Kurt Russell, helped shape her as a parent.

The 41-year-old actress has three kids with three different fathers.

She shares son Ryder, 17, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, son Bingham, nine, with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy and daughter, Rani Rose, two, with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress talked about her complex family dynamics on TODAY, jokingly saying "I've got multiple dads, I've got kids all over the place."

Hudson also spoke about being at home with her family throughout quarantine, admitting she 'never thought in a million years that she'd spend a whole year in one place.'

"When you have so many kids, sometimes you have those moments where you're hiding in your bathroom going, 'Please, please, get me out of here!'" she said.

"I just remind myself there's a lot of people out there who have lost their loved ones, and we just gotta stay in for a bit."

The actress grew up not knowing her father, musician and actor Bill Hudson. Instead her and brother Oliver were raised by their mother Goldie Hawn and her partner Kurt Russel, who she says was the 'father figure' in her life.

"It's a 41-year-old issue," she continued, referring to her own father.

"I have a great family. I have a beautiful mother. I have a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in our life. But it doesn't take away from the fact that we didn't know our dad."

"I kind of look at my dad and I'm, like, 'You know, the love has never ever gone anywhere,'" she continued.  "It's always been there, no matter what those complications have been."
