Kate Hudson claims she’s doing just fine with her parental flaws, adding in her statements that “she’s doing her best as a mother”.
The ‘Almost Famous’ star is blessed with two sons from two broken relationships: Ryder, 12, her son with ex-husband Chris Robinson; and 5-year-old Bingham, who she shares with former fiancé Matt Bellamy.
Kate admits she could be an OK mom sometimes. Importantly, the proud mom-of-two said she has never expected herself to be perfect.
“I don’t try to sugarcoat things,” she told the October issue of Marie Claire.
“I’ll say, ‘I’m doing the best I can.’ I like cooking, I like presenting. I like it to be an experience and [my kids] help me with it, but if they want something after that, I’ll be like, ‘Look, I’m placing a meal out for you like a king. I can’t do everything. I’m going to have to be the OK mom.'”
The 37-year-old mom previously claimed she is “surprisingly strict” when it comes to raising her children.
She said: “I’m surprisingly strict sometimes but pretty easygoing when it comes to TV stuff, video games … I’m really more about how they’re treating people, politeness and manners. I’m a good pointer. I point – you go there, you do this – I have to go do that. I’m doing an okay job, my kids are happy.”

However, she has a wild side as a mom, too.
She added: “I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder. So, our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we’re close, and I am his mom. I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude. But I’m a bit of a wild mom …
“Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children … [But] I wouldn’t be the best mom I could be if I didn’t follow my creative endeavors I would feel an emptiness that would be felt in our home. So a stay-at-home mom will never be my life and that will never be my kids’ experience of me.”
