"I've always had a really super open relationship with her," Hudson told E! News in 2016. "I've never felt like I've had to hide anything from mom. If anything, she's always been my confidante."
Sometimes the student becomes the teacher. Goldie reflected in an interview with E! News, "Kate has taught me a lot. She is in many ways tougher than I was with the kids... At the same time she is extremely truthful. I think it's vitally important to take the truth as much as you don't want it."
Reflecting on the lessons Goldie has imparted on her through the years, Kate told E! News at the 2018 SAG Awards, "I think one of the things my mom has taught me is to find compassion in everything that I do, kindness, and that family is everything. How we raise our children is the true legacy for everyone and everything. So everything we put our hearts into is really just for our family."
What was life like with Goldie and Kurt Russell as parents? As Hudson described, "It was one of those childhoods where you say, 'Well, they must have done something right,' because we're all so close. My mom, as busy as she was, was a very present parent."

At Goldie and Russell's joint Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in May 2017, their daughter gushed, Their real legacy is what they have instilled in us kids—our tribe—that they created that they so vehemently protect and defend, the relationship they fiercely refuse to lose sight of together, and the deep feeling of love and nurturing they reserve for the most important thing we have in this life: family."
"Grateful #MamaGoldie," Hudson captioned this snapshot on a hike with her mom.
Even Kate's 14-year-old son, Ryder Robinson, has so much pride for his successful mom and grandma. He gushed to E! News at an event for the Hawn foundation, "It's really cool and very inspiring. I'm so proud of Gogo and my mom."
