AceShowbiz - Kate Hudson is planning to leave gender out of her parenting style. The mother of three recently shared in an interview with AOL that she didn't make adjustment when parenting her 3-month-old Rani despite raising boys only up to this point.
"It doesn't really change my approach, but there's definitely a difference," the 39-year-old actress, who welcomed Rani in early October with partner Danny Fujikawa, revealed. "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," Kate, who is also a mother to Bighamn Hawn and Ryder Russell, added. "It's very different from the boys, and it's really fun to actually want to buy kids' clothes."
"With the boys it was just onesies … actually, I did pretty good with the boys," the WW ambassador went on saying with a laugh. "But with her it's a whole other ball game. There's some stuff that I'm like, 'I can't do that to her, because it's so over-the-top.' "
Her own upbringing also affects the way she views the fluidity of gender roles. "I was a tomboy in a spinning dress," the "Almost Famous" actress, who is the only girl in a group of brothers, said. "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."
"But growing up as a girl with all boys, you end up with a thick skin. You really do. People say, 'Oh, your brothers must've really protected you.' And I'm like, 'They threw me right into the fire!' " Kate added.
Kate previously revealed that she and Danny "decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her (paternal) grandfather, Ron Fujikawa." Further writing on her Instagram account, "Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor."
