Happy birthday, Ryder Robinson!
Kate Hudson's eldest child turned 16 years old on Tuesday. The 40-year-old actress celebrated the major milestone by posting a throwback video of her son on Instagram.
"I didn't realize it would be here so fast!" she captioned the footage, which showed a then 2-year-old Ryder blowing out his birthday candles. "16 years today. 16. I will savor these next couple years before he flies the nest. People sometimes get sad on days like this. Time creeps up on us and rocks us a bit, reminding us that the years don't wait for us to be ready. Well, RYDER IF [YOU'RE] READING! I'M READY!!! I'm excited for your future. An amazing young man you are. I am honored that you chose me to be your mother. And here's the thing...you still have two years under this roof. My roof, my rules ;) Happy Birthday baby @mr.ryderrobinson."
The proud parent also posted a few videos of the birthday boy on Instagram Stories. Although, Ryder didn't seem thrilled about his mom's camera work. When the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star asked her firstborn how 16 was treating him, he replied with a smile, "It was great until you started filming me."
