Goldie Hawn sings for son Oliver Hudson on his birthday
Goldie shares son Oliver and daughter Kate with her ex-husband Bill Hudson. She then went on to welcome her son Wyatt with current long-time partner Kurt Russell. Both Kate and her brother recently revealed that they both thought Oliver was the favorite son. On an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the host asked them both who they thought the favorite child was. They both pointed to Oliver with a laugh.
Stories from Oliver’s childhood
Oliver has also previously discussed how when he and Kate were younger, they didn’t want anyone to know that their mom was Goldie Hawn. “We were at sleepaway camp and it was my duty in life to have nobody know who my parents were, I didn’t want anyone to know my mom was Goldie Hawn,” he recalls on The Ellen Show back in 2019.
“I did the best that I could and nobody knew at camp. And we had this big hill that descended down into this dock, and the director of the camp was doing his morning announcement. [And] suddenly to the back of us this sea plane comes roaring down and lands. [And] everyone gets quiet, all 700 campers, and it pulls up to the dock. And out comes my mother. And she came out and said: ‘I want to see my kids!’ Nobody comes to see their kids at sleepaway camp.”
Wishing a very happy birthday to Oliver Hudson!
