Kate Hudson's pregnant; father is Matthew Bellamy of Muse

Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy are expecting a baby Kate Hudson is 14 weeks pregnant, expecting a baby with boyfriend Matthew Bellamy, the frontman of the band Muse.

This is a second child for the actress, 31, and the first for Bellamy, 32. Ryder, the actress' son with ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, is 7.

"It was not planned, but they are excited and embracing it," a source told Us Weekly, which first reported the news.

Hudson and Bellamy have been dating for about nine months, said People, which quoted a source as saying, "They couldn't be more excited." (You do the math.)

Hudson's parents are actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson -- the latter of whom is reportedly shopping a tell-all exposé about the former, in which he accuses Goldie of being "a movie star who enjoyed having 'open relationships' and limiting access to their children." Father and kids Kate and Oliver Hudson ("Rules of Engagement") have been estranged since the parents' 1979 divorce.

"What he really wants is a relationship with his children and he hopes this will help," Bill Hudson's agent told Page Six.

Interesting problem-solving approach?
