Kate Hudson taking a 'genderless' approach to raising daughter despite her 'incredibly feminine' energy

KATE HUDSON has outlined the “genderless” approach she is set to take with parenting her new-born child.

The 39-year-old husband and partner Danny Fujikawa welcomed daughter Rani Rose into the world last October.

Hudson already has two sons with previous partners Chris Robinson and Matt Bellamy.

However, she’s been keen to stress that her approach to parenting Rani won’t differ just because she’s a girl.

"I think you just raise your kids individually, regardless - like, a genderless [approach],” she told AOL.

"We still don't know what she's going to identify as."

Despite stressing the need for a genderless approach, Hudson did go on to describe her daughter as “incredibly feminine”.

"She is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way. It's very different from the boys,” she said.

"It's really fun to actually want to buy kids' clothes. With the boys it was just, like, onesies. ... 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.' "

The Almost Famous star admitted her views on gender roles are the result of her childhood, growing up alongside two brothers.

The 'Bride Wars' star's own upbringing taught her that gender roles don't have to be limited and she credits being raised with brothers for having a "thick skin" because they always mocked her.

She said: "I was a tomboy in a spinning dress. My middle brother [Boston Russell], who is closest to me in age, was basically my sister because I put make-up 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.”
