As if we needed another reason to love Kate Hudson.

The adorable mother of two stuns on the May cover of Elle U.K. and shares her thoughts on marrying British beau Matthew Bellamy, her dedication to family life and struggling to lose the baby weight after giving birth to her first son

Looking absolutely breathtaking in couture designs by Balenciaga, Dior, Miu Miu and Nina Ricci, Kate tells the mag how her main focus has always been her family and she strives to teach her two children, Ryder, 9, and 18-month-old Bingham to appreciate what they have: 

"I'm a lot less a rock chick and a lot more about being a good mother, a good partner," the 33-year-old star admits. "I'm part of a family. That's how we were brought up, how I bring my kids up. They are very blessed to live how they do but they are aware of that."

The caring mother also shares her plans to wed her partner and son Bingham's father, although she insists the couple of three years has no immediate plans:

"We will get married," the blond beauty said of her Muse frontman hottie. "I do think it's important but we have no plans. He [Ryder] wants a party. For me it's not the legal part that is important, it's what it means to the family." 

But the pair's blissful family life had a bit of a rocky beginning, as Kate became pregnant with Bingham only two months after meeting Bellamy.

"[I]t was all very old-fashioned and proper and we went on lovely dates [after meeting Matt Bellamy at Coachella music festival]," she jokes. "And two months later I was pregnant... Well, yes [I was shocked], but I also thought: ‘This is going to be interesting.'"

Luckily, it was a good kind of interesting for the couple, and Kate shares how their love blossomed throughout her pregnancy:

"I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it," she says of her partner. "You know that with a relationship things can go either way when you have a child. When you get pregnant everything changes; you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision."

And Kate's certainly no stranger to losing the baby weight, admitting she had trouble shedding the pounds after giving birth to her first child.

"I am now [after Ryder's birth] a human calorie app," she confesses. " I've learnt about nutrition and how it works, and I eat incredibly well now…I don't believe in diets, I think the whole concept should be banned." 

A fabulous figure, career and family? Sounds like a charmed life indeed.
