Earlier this week, Kate Hudson welcomed her third child (and first daughter!), and Goldie Hawn officially became a grandmother to six beautiful grandchildren. While the loving Hollywood family has been making us swoon over their bond for decades, it's Goldie's recent parenting advice that is hitting close to home. During an event celebrating a collaboration with her daughter's Fabletics brand, Goldie sat down with People to discuss all things parenting and shared some of her greatest familial wisdom.
"We do the best we can as mothers," Goldie said. "Certainly, as a mother, I've made mistakes. We all do, we all will. But the most important thing is to stay authentic and true to yourself and hope that you show by example, not by what you say but by what you do."
Goldie and Kate's close relationship is one that so many mothers and daughters have idolized, and we're pretty much convinced that compassion, optimism, and warmth just runs in their blood, but Goldie explained she leads by example. "We hope our children will amplify the best part of us," she said. "I'm proud of my daughter. She has become a spokesperson herself for children's wellness, for happiness, all the things that she grew up with."
She added, "I'm not conscious of going, 'I need to be a role model.' Heck no. I am my own role model. I live by my own ethics and my own standards and my own sense of love. That's who I am. I think every one of my children, I can say wholeheartedly, has this wonderful attribute."
Her final advice to Kate and to all parents is to live in the moment and savor it all. "Each stage brings you a different kind of happiness, so focus on that," Goldie shared. "Sometimes they'll drive you crazy, but just focus on the joy of being able to do this at all." Now that is right! Read on to see recent photos of Kate and Goldie's adorable bond.
