Kate Hudson welcomed her second son, Bingham Bellamy, in July 2011, and shared a first image of him on Twitter that August. She and fiancé Matthew Bellamy, of the band Muse, expanded their property portfolio with new real estate purchases in London and LA big enough for their family of four, including Kate's son from her first marriage, Ryder Robinson. The Bellamy-Hudsons frequently jet between LA and London, which gives them ample opportunity to spend time with their wide circle of friends that include Stella McCartney, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, and even Kate Moss. Kate Hudson made sure she was in LA over Halloween to throw one of her epic Halloween parties.
Kate promoted her under-the-radar movie Far From Heaven and also spent time on the set of her upcoming The Reluctant Fundamentalist. She continued doing other press work as the face of Ann Taylor and on behalf of her CH+KH jewelry line. Kate's lined up big projects for next year, including the action picture Everly and a small role on Glee. Kate enjoyed plenty of bikini time and has gone on exotic getaways with Matthew to places like Greece, Cabo, Aspen, Antibes, and Cancun. She enjoyed many celebrations this year as well — Kate rang in her 33rd year, attended the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and hit the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty.
