Kate Hudson not secretly married to Matt Bellamy, Goldie Hawn says

Kate Hudson and fiance/baby daddy Matt Bellamy aren't secretly married, no matter what mom Goldie Hawn may have said — but may not have meant — about her daughter in a recent interview with a British magazine.

Hawn set the record straight Monday via Twitter, but not before a flurry of stories had erupted over her reported choice of words in an article published in ES, the Evening Standard's magazine. RadarOnline presented it as an exclusive Friday night that Hawn had either spilled the beans or had a slip of the tongue about Hudson's marital status.

"My kids are fantastic with their children, they have an amazing parental ethic and I'm very proud of them for that," Hawn reportedly told ES. "When my daughter Kate married an English rock star [Matt Bellamy] it didn't worry me; all that matters is that the relationship is a good one."

Never mind that Radar had qualified it as a possible slip of the tongue: The Vancouver Sun was one outlet that by Monday had turned it into a story with a headline touting Hudson's "secret wedding" to the father of her baby boy, Bing, born last July. The Sun even threw in a pretty big dig: "Goldie Hawn's big mouth has graduated from spoiling mediocre films to her own daughter's wedding."

Ouch. But back to setting the record straight.

"So are kate and Matt really married," a follower asked Hawn via Twitter on Monday, "or are the press twisting your they do.....again! lol."

"Darling," Hawn replied, "once again twisted the truth. They aren't married. Xx"
